Established in 2006 based on Italian espresso basics, Bluff City Coffee continues to provide high quality espresso beverages. There’s no brewed coffee, just espresso. Everything is espresso-based. The difference lies in the way the coffee is made. An espresso shot is brewed by forcing very hot water under high pressure through coffee that has been finely ground. If you order an “Americano” at Bluff City, you’ll still get a cup of, well, diluted espresso. Americano is basically espresso and water. It’s a fresh cup of coffee as opposed to a pot sitting there for 30 minutes. Additionally, there is a wide selection of teas and smoothies. A drink for every palette.
