While in Spokane, Washington, recently on the Young, Loved, Hated & Broke Tour, we had the privilege of visiting Coeur Coffeehouse. At first glance, you can tell that the people behind the establishment care deeply about their product and the customer experience. With the temperature outside in the 80s, naturally, David inquired about their cold-brew coffee upon entering. The polite barista offered up a sample and explained their 14-hour cold brewing method. The chilled drink was naturally sweet and the roast's flavor shined through. However, we knew we would regret leaving without trying one of their espresso-based offerings, so we ended up ordering cappuccinos made of Stumptown's Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Chelbessa. We were far from disappointed. Ambrosial—that's the word that best describes what we tasted.

In addition to their coffee and pastries (which they were unfortunately sold out of at the time we were there), Coeur also has a back room with additional seating and a chessboard for guests. The sleek interior, incredible lighting and high ceilings makes for the perfect place to get work done, socialize with friends or have some one-on-one time with a date.
