Drinking a flight of your favorite beverage doesn’t have to include alcohol, it can be coffee! Try one of these Minnesota Coffee Shops where you can grab a flight!
Many of us, including myself enjoying meeting up with friends to have a good conversation and perhaps catch up on the day to day things. Often those conversations never quite seem long enough!
On occasion I will have a beer but more often than not, I prefer fancy coffee or tea. I recently discovered coffee flights!
Maybe they’ve been around for many years and I’m just slow to the game, but either way, I’m excited and decided to share some of the places around Minnesota that offer them.
What is a Coffee Flight?
A Coffee Flight can vary from location to location, but the basic principle is that you get to try multiple types or flavors of coffee all in one order. These can be hot or cold coffee drinks and they might even throw in some extras.
The size of the beverages and the number of flavors included will also vary, but four to five varieties seems to be the most common number.

We would love to make our list longer and share a few more in central Minnesota, Moorhead/Fargo or Duluth. If anyone knows of places in those areas please let us know so we can add them.
There are some great options for road tripping and meeting up with friends. The flight prices seem to average around $10-20 so it’s a great thrifty meet up and share item with a friend or date.
