Not Your Average Joe: Coffee Shops in Medina County

We call coffee lots of things: A cup of joe, java, mocha, mud, rocket fuel, jitter juice, cobweb cleaner, and nitro are just a few nicknames. We have even more ways to describe its look and taste: Oil slick, sludge, varnish remover, and battery acid. Whatever you call it, for many people it’s an indispensable part of their wake-up ritual and the rocket fuel that powers them through a tough day.

When you’re traveling through Medina Country, a good cup of locally made Joe will never be far away. No longer the nitro or sludge of old, today’s coffee shops offer an almost never-ending variety of tastes and combinations of flavors to suit your palate.


Discover everything from a full-service espresso bar as well as scones at coffee shops.
