I’ve grown up and lived in Naples Florida my whole life. It’s something that I’m very proud to tell people. Naples is a very unique place. Its got the appeal of a slow, calming beach day while also having options for some pretty fun night life. One of the things I love most about my sweet hometown is how many local options you have that you just can’t find anywhere else.
If you know anything about me, you know how I survive on caffeine. Not only do I love how coffee helps me get through my day but I love how it brings people together. How many times have you wanted to get together with a friend- and you’ve met for coffee? Its just soothing to sit down and share great conversation over a cup of coffee.
Now, combine my love for local Naples Florida, and a good cup of coffee- and you get Badass Coffee Company.
Jenna has successfully run Badass for 9 out of the 11 years they’ve been in Naples. What I love most about Jenna and her team is how friendly they are. No matter what time of day you walk in, you’re greeted with a friendly face and a smile. And if you go often enough, they will start making your drink as soon as they see you walk up (trust me, I’m one of those people!) The Badass staff become more like friends who just so happen to make a bomb cup of coffee.
Badass Coffee Company was brought to Naples after a couple went to Hawaii on their honeymoon, and loved the vibe. Badass does a great job of pairing a calming atmosphere with an upbeat feel. It’s impossible to walk out of there in a bad mood. Its very pet friendly and now that I think about it- I don’t think there’s ever a time where there ISN’T a cute pup for me to pet! You can also sit outdoors all year long since Naples never gets a true winter. Would I recommend sitting outside in August? Not unless I don’t like you haha. However sitting outside in October is a dream!
So when you walk up to the counter, after deciding if you’re going to indulge in the BEST corn muffin you could ever have, you need to decide what kind of coffee you will order. One thing to note when making up your mind- is that their 100% KONA blend is 2nd in the world. The bean is grown in volcanic soil which pulls out all of the acidity. Its suuuuper smooth and is probably the ONLY coffee I can drink black.
If you decide against the KONA blend, another option is their frozen blended coffee. If you’re looking to get a little crazy… try this. Its made with 99% coffee. Nope. You didn’t read that wrong. 99%. Thats only 1% of your drink that ISN’T caffeinated. They have a ton of different tea options as well if coffee isn’t your thing (…weirdo, jk) They have a million different flavored lattes (my favorite is an iced almond milk latte with hazelnut.)
My last… and FAVORITE thing to mention is that they use COFFEE as ice cubes. Gahhh I just love it so much. That means if you get an iced coffee, or iced latte– and you don’t chug it right away it doesn’t get all gross and watery! How amazing is that?! It’s seriously the best.
If you guys live in Naples- or are planning on visiting soon.. you NEED to stop by Badass Coffee Company. Friends don’t let friends drink bad coffee- so TRUST me on this.
