Back Alley Coffee Roasters is located in downtown Wake Forest on Brooks Street. It’s just around the corner from White Street Brewing. They are a local micro-roaster that also operates two coffee shops. Their flagship shop is located along with their roasting operation on Brooks street. Their second shop is in the Ledford Student Center on the Southeastern campus. Both locations started out serving pour over coffees, nitro cold brew and teas, but have recently added espresso drinks to the menu.
I stopped by the Brooks Street location last Saturday to try their espresso and had a fantastic latte. I also noticed that they have added some baked goods to their menu (supplied by local baker Strong Arm Baking). If you are looking for some great locally roasted coffee to give as a gift this holiday, or just want to check out a great new coffee shop highly recommend paying Back Alley a visit. Make sure you try their Nitro Cold Brew. It’s some of the best I have ever had!
