The Charleston Coffee Exchange shop is located well beyond the tourist locales, but it's conveniently on the commute of many a local on their way to work down 61. The Coffee Exchange roasts all of their own beans, sourced directly from farms across the globe, for the freshest coffee possible every day. They offer at least six different single origin coffees or blends roasted personally by the owner Paul along with a host of pastries and sweets from local bakeries. Locals love this place for the unfussy coffee and the welcoming staff, many of whom have worked at the cafe since it opened. Small and cozy, be prepared to knock knees with your neighbor if you decide to sit here awhile.
