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.
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.
