The coffees that Amavida Coffee Roasters roasts are largely organic offerings from around the world, and the quality of the roasting is evident in the brew. The roastery was named the 2018 Roaster of the Year by Roast Magazine, a national publication that covers the coffee industry.

The cafe menu features all of the common coffee shop drinks you’d expect, including coffees, lattes, iced coffees, iced lattes, frozen drinks and more.

In addition to the roaster’s commitment to carry organic coffee, they also focus on several other certifications. The company itself is a Certified B Corporation, and many coffees are Fair Trade Certified.  You may also notice certifications like Taking Root and QCS. Even if you don’t know exactly what all of these earth-friendly certifications are, they essentially mean that this is coffee you can feel good about drinking.

For a good cup of coffee from a company that’s doing lots of good, come to Amavida Coffee Roasters. Your drink will be the best coffee you have in Rosemary Beach, and it might be some fo the best coffee you’ve had anywhere.

A few of our favorite menu items at Amavida Coffee Roasters include:

French Press
Fully savor one of Amavida Coffee Roasters’ coffees with a French Press. The brewing method doesn’t use a paper filter, which ensures all of the flavorful oils remain in the brew.

Espresso is the only brewing method that uses pressure to make coffee, and this is what makes espresso taste unique. Combine a shot with hot water to create an Americano, and the aromas in the shot will unfold. Try the same coffee as a drip brew and an Americano, and you’ll taste the difference.

Chai Latte
Not a coffee fan? The Chai Latte will keep you energized and is equally delicious. Get it with whipped cream for an extra special treat.

Alpha Dominche
The Alpha Dominche is an extremely precise and fully customizable brewing apparatus. In the hands of an expert barista with a high-quality coffee, the result is absolute perfection in a cup.

Avocado Toast
Avocado Toast has become a modern coffee shop classic, and they do it particularly well here. The bread is delicious and the avocado generous, and it comes with red pepper flakes on the side if you like a little spice.

Insider Tips:
– If the seating inside the cafe is all taken, there’s a small public art gallery next door that Amavida Coffee Roasters’ customers are welcome to use. The gallery has several tables and chairs, and you might want to head over here even if the coffee shop’s tables are free. The artwork is locally done and remarkable.
