A little over five years ago, Nate Young, 32, and his brother-in-law Tim McTague, 36, were both touring the country in rock bands. They’d go to city after city, see a bunch of cool things, then come back to Tampa and see the folks doing cool things here leave for other cities.

‘I thought, Tampa’s not going to get cool unless someone stays here and makes it cool,’ Young said.

We’re sitting in King State, the space he and business partner McTague opened at the end of June on E Floribraska Avenue in Tampa. It’s the first brick-and-mortar location for the pair who spent the last handful of years steadily growing a coffee roasting brand of the same name.

The Best Coffee in Every State 2019

Countless cups of coffee, twelve months of research, from coast to coast’for Food & Wine’s second annual survey, we pulled out all the stops, and we couldn’t be more excited to share our findings

The big, beautiful moment came from nowhere, on the worst possible day’a brittle, featureless January afternoon in one of those Southern cities you do not typically rush toward when looking to uncover trends. The morning had been filled with disappointment, and coffee that tasted like sadness, and I wasn’t the least bit optimistic, arriving at my final stop. But there was this brand new coffee bar’that I apparently just had to see, and so I went, expecting nothing. The town was already full of coffee shops, and’they were all pretty bad’new, old, didn’t matter. Should this one be any different?
