10 Best Places for Iced Coffee in New Mexico

Whether it’s a latte or an Americano you’re seeking, New Mexico’s quaint and cool shops are serving up some delicious coffee of the iced variety. And it doesn’t matter what the temperatures are like outside, sometimes you just have to satisfy that iced coffee craving. Here are 10 of our favorite spots in the state. 

Trifecta Coffee Company, Albuquerque, NM

Coffee roasted in house. Sauces and syrups made in house. Sweet and savory bakery items baked fresh daily, in house. That is indeed a winning trifecta. The coffee beans, the delicious base for all coffee drinks, are from five different growing regions around the word. Iced drinks are shaken not stirred for better flavor and made from a cold brew, not hot coffee cooled down. Don’t miss the refreshing C&T, coffee and tonic with a spritz of mint.

Elevation Coffee, El Prado, NM

This coffee house is fondly known as the “hub,” a place where locals and visitors gather and hang out. Coffee begins with fair trade organic from local roasters Agapao and Taos Roaster. Coffee is made in small urns for freshness. Surprise your palate with an iced Americano, latte, cafe au lait, Mexican mocha or a simple brewed coffee. Cash only.

Bad Ass Coffee, Bernalillo, NM

Frozen coffee ice cubes are the secret ingredient that put the iced coffees here over-the-top-good. The island vibe here comes from the 100 percent Kona coffee flown in from the Big Island that they serve. The Bad Ass Mocha lives up to its name. It’s a blend of dark and white chocolate with one or two shots of espresso. Say aloha!

Javalina Coffee House, Silver City, NM

Coffee has been brewing here longer than at any other coffee house in town. The quirky, relaxed atmosphere is like a second home to locals and a welcoming spot for visitors. Specialty iced drinks include favorites like a mocha and caramel latte, as well as exotic blends like a Candy Bar Mocha with chocolate, caramel, coconut, espresso and milk.

Beck’s Roasting House & Creamery, Las Cruces, NM

More than 20 different varieties and handcrafted bean blends from around the world are roasted at this coffee house. Each cup of coffee is made as a pour over at the coffee bar. Any of the espresso and specialty mochas, lattes and cafe au laits can also be made as iced drinks. If you’re not craving hot or cold coffee, try the iced dirty chai.

Java Joes, Santa Fe, NM

Find your coffee groove and either of the two locations, “one espresso at a time.” The beans are locally roasted and full-flavored. Iced espressos come with two, three or four shots. The iced mocha is made with Ghiaradelli chocolate. Try the spicy Azteca de Oro, a Mexican mocha with cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of chile. Top everything off with homemade whipped cream. 

The Java Loft, Clovis, NM

There is actually a loft seating area just right for gatherings of family, and friends, business meetings or social groups. There’s plenty of other seating for a grab-and-sit-for-a-bit cup of coffee, too. Coffee is roasted locally and picked up weekly, so it’s never stale. There’s a full menu of cold drinks from an Americano to mocha to caramel macchiato to lattes and chai. Add flavor from a selection of 30 different syrups.

Java Junction, Madrid, NM

You could spend the night here in the upstairs B&B and then wander down the next morning for a refreshing iced coffee drink, made with coffee ice cubes that, as they melt, add to the rich flavor. Coffee is made with locally beans roasted just north of town. Fresh pastries, a casual patio and an understanding that “bad coffee sucks” will keep you coming back.

Undergrounds Coffee, Hobbs, NM

A number of colleges keep this coffee shop busy with students, so busy they have two locations. It’s a great place to read and relax, even if you’re not a student. The menu has typical coffee house drinks, all handmade and worth the wait. The iced coffees are more coffee than ice, a cool pick-me-up anytime of the day. A local favorite is the iced macchiato. Drive thru service for those on the run.

Zocca Coffee & Tea, Ruidoso, NM

Ice lattes come in all flavors, with different milks and syrups — almond milk, chai tea, skinny mocha and creamy hazelnut latte are just a few of the top favorites. A warm and inviting coffee shop in any season in this mountain town. The drinks are beautiful and the food is delicious.
