For years I’ve been flying in and out of Pittsburgh International Airport and it was only recently I took a wrong turn and found the coffee shop I had missed for so long.
Best Coffee – Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT)
Note to self: it is useful to check out airport directories.
For so long, I simply assumed Pittsburgh Airport simply did not have great coffee. There’s The Strip Market in the Center Core, but the coffee there is only marginally drinkable (La Colombe).
But recently I took a wrong turn down the B Concourse and found Joe & The Juice. What a delightful find!
Joe & The Juice is located airside in Concourse B and open daily from 5:00 am to 9:00 pm. I don’t typically fly the carriers that operate from this section of the airport and never had reason to go down this hall…but now I do.
The coffee was wonderful, particularly the strong cortado.
I also tried a “Joe’s Green Mile” with:
A very refreshing drink indeed.
I will now make it a point to always stop here when traveling through Pittsburgh Airport. It truly is like night and day compared to the coffee in the American Airlines Admirals Club or “The Club” Priority Pass lounges.
And the irony? There is usually no line here versus the Starbucks with lines out the door…
Sound familiar? Joe & The Juice is also one of my favorite coffee shops at San Francisco International (SFO).
There’s also one in Copenhagen at Kastrup Airport.
