Not everyone wants a hot coffee during these incoming winter months. Not even with all the stress of school and exams. Life is kind of hard as it is. So get yourself a frozen coffee, you deserve it.

Infusion Coffee & Tea

Infusion Coffee & Tea is one of my favorite coffee places for two reasons; spunky drinks and the most adorable mug wall in the cafe. They have off-the-wall drinks like The SprO'J, which is orange juice and espresso, The Warrant, which is cold brew, cherry and white chocolate. Those odd combinations are cult classics here. Not sold yet? What makes Infusion Coffee & Tea different from other coffee places is that they offer classes on coffee making essentials. Yes, this does include a crash course on Instagram worthy latte art designs.

Seattle Espresso

Seattle Espresso is a hidden gem in Tempe. Although you can't order anything blended here, their iced drinks are no joke. The iced mochas are hands down the best ones in Tempe. Plus, they have the best patio for studying.

Don't know what to order? try the White Russian Mocha.

The Human Bean

The Human Bean is a coffee chain that has taken over the west coast. They have every kind of drink you can possibly think of. I'm literally dreaming about their Caramel Apple Smoothie or the white chocolate, caramel Sugar Mama blended latte. Oh and did I mention they offer that drive thru experience all of us lazies love!

Don't know what to order? Try their Ghirardelli Frozen Hot Chocolate with Toasted Marshmallow. Also, do yourself a favor and order one of the Pumpkin Butta Cakes. Or maybe two.

Dutch Bros

You know it. You love it. Dutch Bros is a fan favorite so I won't bore you with all the details of the delicious, creamy drinks they offer. But, what you didn't know is that not only do they have the best drinks ever, they also have festive snacks too like the Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffin and a Gluten-Free Chocolate Brown Sugar Pecan Loaf.

So next time you're grabbing a Pumpkin Pie Freeze, don't forget to order one of their mouth-watering baked goodies.


Starbucks doesn't just have the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte. They have an insane amount of drinks and customization options that it's no wonder that it's the most popular coffee chain all over the country. Forgot to eat breakfast? They got you. Dairy-free? They have coconut, almond and soy milk. Sugar-free? They have vanilla, hazelnut, caramel and cinnamon-dolce. Overwhelmed with options and don't know what to order? They literally have a "what kind of drink are you" quiz available on their website. Face it, they are the coffee king.

Bored of your usual Pumpkin Spice Latte? Try out their new 

Almond Protein Blended Cold Brew.

Xtreme Bean Coffee

With over 300 reviews and 4 1/2 stars on yelp, Xtreme Bean Coffee has quickly taken over Tempe. They have a great cafe for studying and a variety of drinks to try. If you are searching to satisfy your frozen coffee sweet-tooth, try out their Toffee Coffee Frap or their Blended Chai. Oh, and did I mention they are dog friendly? So go ahead and bring your fur baby along for the ride.

Plus, their latte art is, well, Xtreme

Bikini Beans

Bikini Beans is known for their blended frappes like the Cookie Monster and the White Tiger. Their drink sizes are like bra sizes ranging from a 12 oz A-Cup to a 24 oz DD-Cup.
