Motorcycle Coffee on the West Coast
Spoken Moto has truly built a community around motorcycles. In keeping with their mission to “Reclaim, restore, and bring new life, beauty and purpose to what was forgotten,” they converted an old and forgotten motorcycle shop into their headquarters in Bend, OR.
At Spoken Moto, you can find vintage motorcycles, quality goods, warm food, hot coffee, beer, and even live music on occasion. When the stage is silent, expect to enjoy a symphony of coffee grinders, espresso steaming, and the sweet melody of motorcycle parts and bolts clanging—they run an active motorcycle repair shop out of the space. The result? A true fusion of love for coffee and motorcycles.
Best of all, at Spoken Moto you might make some new friends that you can join for one of their epic motorcycle events throughout the year.
See See Motor Coffee
See See Motor Coffee fosters a unique culture of motorcycle community, with their mission to “keep motorcycling alive and well in the Pacific Northwest.” They have 4 locations across Oregon, each adorned with rad bikes and motorcycle-themed decor. Their menu includes a variety of coffee brews, including French press, pour-over, and espresso, as well as pastries and light breakfast fare.
Fun fact: the name “See See” is a playful take on “cc” for engine displacement.
Two Stroke Coffee Co
Inspired by the “raw and elemental” power of a two-stroke motorcycle engine, Two Stroke Coffee has two Portland locations open from 6:30am to 5pm. They offer a chill atmosphere to hang out and enjoy your favorite coffee beverage, bagels, breakfast sandwiches, fancy toasts, and yogurt bowls.
If you get in late from a long ride, they serve beer in the evenings.
Cafe Moto is run by second-generation owners whose family has been roasting coffee and riding motorcycles in San Diego since the 1960s. That makes it one of the most historic motorcycle coffee destinations in the US—and they still roast coffee in batch roasters from the 1930s.

All this creative fusion doesn't stop at their retail store, either. Visit their website to see some of the short films about motorcycles they have created. Enjoy the atmosphere with a visit to Jane Motorcycles next time you're near Brooklyn.
Motorcycle Coffee in the South
Flat Track Coffee
Flat Track is a moto-themed cafe and coffee roaster located in the eclectic Eastside district of Austin, TX. Their menu includes pastries and a handful of unique espresso drinks with an Austin flair, including the popular Mexican Mocha.
One caveat is there is no Wi-fi and seating is limited, so your best bet may be enjoy that cup of coffee as a quick pit stop—fueling up on caffeine to hit the road again.
"Would you a new bike with that latte?"
Wolfsmiths is a spacious coffee shop, grill, bar, motorcycle and car dealership, retail store, and repair shop. In full Texas fashion, you'll find the showroom and coffee bar inside a metal shed with exposed wood beam.
Park your bike, order a coffee with some breakfast tacos, and enjoy the ambience.
Blip Coffee Roasters
Established in 2014, Blip Roaster's claim to fame is roasting wholesale coffee for coffee shops, restaurants, and offices across the US. Their café offers a selection of coffee, espresso drinks, and teas—plus seasonal offerings for something different like the Lavender Lemon Cold Brew.
Between sips, you can get fitted for a helmet because of their partnership with Bell. Check out their calendar of events for motorcycle demos, brunches, barista challenges, and more.
Working on the road? They offer one unique amenity you won't find at any other coffee roaster: a conference room you can rent out.
Motorcycle Coffee Online
While some of the previously mentioned roasters and coffee shops also sell products online, here are a few digital-first options we think you'll enjoy.
Motorcycle Monkey offers a variety of medium, light, and dark roast coffees available in whole bean or ground. Their Drunk Monkey Coffee features "a mild whiskey flavor with hints of vanilla and caramel."
They also have a retail store open 3 hours each Saturday morning in San Diego.
Moto Coffee (new)
Moto Coffee is an exciting new brand of motorcycle-themed coffee, founded by a passionate trio of dirt and street bike riders. Our premiere dark coffee roast, "Full Send It," tells you everything you need to know in the name. We love riding—and we love coffee.
The most important thing to know is that Moto Coffee gives a portion of profits back to motorcycle organizations and causes. These include protecting trails, two-wheeled awareness, accident recovery, and more.
