I debated writing about Deep Space Coffee, only because when I visited I didn’t plan on doing any actual blogging. I was with my family in New Mexico for the Christmas holiday, when I stumbled upon this coffee shop. I thought it would be a nice way to get some fresh air, enjoy a cup of coffee, and just hang out together. Of course this coffee shop ended up being super cute, and of course I didn’t bring my camera with me. So please excuse the iPhone photos, and enjoy a quick look in to Deep Space Coffee in the heart of Albuquerque.

Deep Space Coffee

While there isn’t much to do in New Mexico (believe me, I was there for a whole week), downtown Albuquerque does have several newer coffee shops. Deep Space Coffee was definitely an amazing little find, and I was in love the moment I walked in. The store front doesn’t look like much. It actually looks a little dingy from the outside. Once inside though, everything is completely transformed in to a charming yet funky little coffee scene, with lots of character.

The bar area is super cute with white subway tile and black accents. One of the walls is covered in little symbols and drawings, and a few bright blue chairs contrasts the look. The space isn’t too large, but there is ample seating consisting of large picnic-like tables. It’s a really fun place to get a bunch of people together and hang out over some coffee. Also great for study groups because of the large tables. There are a few nice little nooks in the window areas as well, where you can people watch and hang out with friends. Lastly, there are some bar stools at the bar if you fancy seeing all the action. A lot of choices for seating!

I ordered a latte, and I have to say it was one of the best I’ve had in a long time. I was really really surprised. I didn’t ask about or look up what brand of coffee they were using, but their technique was on point too. Everything from the latte art to the very last sip was incredible. I still cannot believe how good it was! I mean, if you are ever in the area you must stop in and get a latte or cappuccino here. One of my grandparents ordered a mocha and it looked phenomenal as well. The presentation was just so great. I literally cannot stop raving about this place since the day we went.

The baristas here were friendly and I had no issues with service. Everything was prompt and hot, and not too terribly expensive. I also loved that they had several choices in sizes for coffee. I think I got the largest cup they had and it was perfect. Typically coffee shops have several to-go sizes, but not different coffee cup sizes ‘for here’ (ya feel me?).

Like I said, I was initially not planning to do a write up of this coffee shop, but I knew after my experience I couldn’t not share this place. So I hope you enjoyed this short and sweet review of Deep Space Coffee! A good coffee shop, with an outta this world latte and interior.

What was your favorite part about this coffee shop?

  1. This looks like such a cute coffee shop! I love the decor, the wall paper is so cute and quirky and I love the pop of blue the seats add. I think it’s great that they have various sizing options, I definitely get what you mean about not having enough sizes to stay, which is why I often order in a to-go cup, even when staying, haha. I honestly wouldn’t have known you took these photos with your iPhone, the quality is great and grainy at all! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great start to your new year so far!

    1. Haha so you’re a size snob too?! Jk. But yes, that’s why I always want to order to-go because they have better size options. So glad you thought the photos were okay!! I had anxiety about them haha.

    1. Same here Caitlin! I could hang out in coffee shops for hours. If I am traveling I usually hit up 2+ in the same day haha. 😉

    1. Thanks Jenn! I know several people who don’t prefer coffee, but they do still love cute little coffee shops! Guess there is always tea haha. I am sure they could make a hot chocolate too, since they serve a mocha. 🙂

  2. How, like literally how is it your iPhone pictures look better than mine that were taken with a camera? I swear it’s the photographer and just a small part is the equipment. Dang… LOL!

    I haven’t seen you rave about a coffee shop this much for a long time, Emily, this must be a special place.

    1. Hahaha Shireen, your comment made me laugh! It really was an awesome little place. And you’re right, I haven’t raved about one in so long! Wish I could go back.

    1. Thank you Mallory! I use Afterlight for Instagram! For my blog I use Lightroom, as I take those photos with a camera. This post was an exception because I didn’t bring along my camera this day. Siiiigh.

  3. Hi I loved your blog. I am surprised you say there was not much to to in Albuquerque. We have a great music scene local bands playing at various locations in town the Uptown funk piano bar, great micro brewery scene, great art galleries, restaurants, hiking and biking trails. were you looking for something in particular?

    1. Thank you! I’ve been on a few hikes and they were really really beautiful, but I am from Arizona so it’s nothing too new to me (lots of hiking! haha). I think the main problem was that I was there for Christmas week, so there wasn’t much going on. Everywhere seemed completely dead! I didn’t know NM had great art galleries though, and I will definitely have to check that out next time as I love that kind of thing!

    1. Thank you Jen! I stumble upon a few of them, but most of the time I do my research before hand ;). I am also pretty picky about the ones I choose to go to! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I loved the picture from Instagram, but those little illustrations/icons are even better! They add such a fun, interesting element to the place. Maybe in 2017 I should step up my coffee shop game, LOL.

  5. “there isn’t much to do in New Mexico” ?!? Come back and I’ll have you rewriting that line. But you’re spot on about DSC.

    1. Haha thank you! I do need to go back when it’s not around the holidays. It was so dead! I think that was the issue.

  6. Wow, this coffeeshop is very Instagram-worthy! Everything
    looks so cute and quaint. I love the decor and the color schemes. The blacks and whites, the woods and metals, the industrial feel and the cozy ambience, the contradictions of this coffee shop is complimenting each other quite well. I’d love to visit this!
