There’s nothing better than a hot cup of coffee in the morning, especially if you can walk to it from your apartment. While Atlanta has the Seattle staple in every corner (you know the one), the city is also powered by several local coffee shops with their own bean roasts and special drips.
Rent.com compiled a list of the best apartments for coffee lovers based on proximity and other data and discovered the best apartments in Atlanta for coffee lovers. Here’s where you can hang your shirts and have your coffee, too.

We looked at all apartments in Atlanta and rated them on the number of coffee-related businesses within a half-mile radius. We used an exponentially decreasing scale based on distance from the apartment. For instance, coffee shops located across the street from a specific property would carry more weight than those a quarter-mile away. Our establishment counts come from commercially available business listings and may not reflect recent openings and closings.
