Raise your hand if you’re a zombie until you get your morning caffeine ….just us? We didn’t think so! We love trying new coffee shops, so we’ve added three more spots to our bucket list.

BeanThru has two locations – on Ohio River Boulevard in Bellevue and Route 8 in Glenshaw. They’re a coffee shop catering to the busy, the commuters, the parents that don’t want to get the kids out of the car…because it’s drive-thru only. Both locations feature a double-sided drive-thru, and they’re open 7 days a week, 364 days a year (closed on Christmas).

From hot to cold to frozen drinks, BeanThru has you covered no matter what your favorite is. Their pumpkin spice latte is available year-round, and they have plenty of seasonal flavors to keep you coming back for more. Although, we have to be honest, we totally love their vanilla latte and cappuccino (and the chocolate covered espresso bean that comes on top!). They also have other classics like chai teas, cafe au lait, mochas, espressos, even fruit smoothies if you’re not in the mood for tea or coffee. Plus they offer on-the-go food if you’re looking for something to eat. BeanThru’s customer service is truly exceptional, so drive by for your coffee soon!

Coffee Tree Roasters

Coffee Tree Roasters is a local certified women owned business that’s been open since 1993. They have five storefronts throughout the Pittsburgh region in Shadyside, Squirrel Hill, Fox Chapel, Mt. Lebanon, and Pleasant Hills. And they roast their own beans at their roastery in West Mifflin.

They serve all of our favorites – cold brew, cortado, lattes, frozen drinks, tea, and more. They use unique, premium ingredients in their beverages – like 1883 Syrups and Hollander Sauces. Plus they have candy, snacks, and other tasty treats…all of which you can order ahead via their mobile system for curbside or contactless delivery. And, naturally, you can buy their own roasted beans to brew at home for those days when you can’t make it out to the shop. They even deliver beans straight to your door! If you haven’t tried them yet, add Coffee Tree Roasters to your bucket list, too.

They also plan to open ten more stores in the area over the next three years.

Rock ‘n’ Joe is focused on creating the best cup of coffee, from the best beans and perfect roast to the knowledgeable baristas. They feature expertly roasted coffee, artfully decorated espresso drinks, and seasonal specials, all served hot, iced, or frozen. You can also find fresh pastries or assorted breakfast and lunch items. The experience at Rock ‘n’ Joe is what really sets them apart, so visit them ASAP!
