If you love coffee as much as we do, then sometimes it can be a struggle to find that perfect “cup of joe” while on the road. Whether waiting in the train station, the airport terminal, or for the nearest taxi, how can you make sure you get the most bang for your buck and quench your coffee addiction? Here are some of our best tips for the traveling coffee addict.
America Runs on Dunkin, Europe Runs on Espresso
Traveling around the European coffee landscape can be a new experience for many. If you’re a hardcore coffee drinker then you won’t have any problem with adjusting to this lifestyle. However, if you can’t live without your Venti Pumpkin Spiced latte then you might experience some culture shock. So branch out of your comfort zone and expect to get your daily caffeine fix from espressos, cappuccinos, or Caffe Lattes.
Be on the lookout
You don’t have to wait until you get to your hotel or hostel to have a cup of coffee. There are plenty of options that are available in train stations and airports. Rule of thumb: if the cafe is crowded that’s usually a good sign it has good coffee. Europeans are known for their love of coffee, so you’re bound to stumble upon a good spot.

Can’t live without your American Iced Coffee?
There’s nothing better than sipping on a delightful cup of iced or hot coffee before a long day of travel. Finding a satisfying cup of American coffee can be a struggle in Europe. But the good news is, it’s not impossible. European coffee joints have a different spin on “iced coffee”. Iced coffee in Europe is legitimately frozen coffee, almost like a frappuccino, some places will chill the coffee meaning it will be cold just no ice. Some coffee joints in your area might even have something similar to the traditional iced coffee we know and love.
If you are a frequent traveler, then purchasing a portable travel mug may not be a bad idea, maybe even purchasing your own portable coffee maker. We know this may seem dramatic, but the need for caffeine is real. This will ensure a fresh cup of coffee no matter where you are in the world and exactly the way you prefer it. Waking up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee beans is the ideal way to start your day of travels. Just don’t forget to pack your coffee grounds.
