The coffee shop experience just wouldn't be the same without music. Over the years, we've discovered some of our favorite artists and bands after a barista played a cut or two from a new release at a local indie cafe. We can't be your favorite barista, but we thought we'd serve up a curated list of coffee-inspired music for you to sip and sing along with your next coffee experience. We're providing two playlists in two different formats -- a YouTube version and a Spotify version. There's considerable overlap between the two, but each of them has cuts that the other doesn't offer. Both coffee-inspired playlists are eclectic blends of blues, ska, rock, pop, country, folk and other pieces that defy categorization. So pour yourself a hot cuppa Joe (you can reference our Brew Guides to help make that perfect cup), relax and savor the ultimate coffee shop blend.
