Name:Bad Ass Coffee Company in Columbia, SC
Type:restaurant
Street:819 Harden St
City:Columbia
State:SC
Zip:29205
country:USA
Phone:803-251-3185
Status:operational

Description:
Bad Ass Coffee Company of Hawaii is a corporation which opens Tiki/Hawaiiana style coffee shops around the US. The stores feature Tiki sculptures hand-carved by Landmine Productions. The general impression of the theme on entry is "surf style" or "Hawaiiana," and they tend to advertise that way. (See also, the listing for Orlando's Bad Ass Coffee Company.)

Some pictures from Columbia's Bad Ass Coffee Company store. I'm not a photographer, and these were taken with my camera phone. Please pardon the poor quality.









I'm generally not a fan of corporate coffee shops because it's near impossible to explain what I mean by "short shot" or "ristretto", let alone get anything that even slightly deviates from the standard menu. Bad Ass Coffee was very accomodating, and their espresso roast is an actual espresso roast, not burnt beans. I didn't try any of their "tropical style" drinks. No alcohol or smoking here, but if you want coffee, it beats the living hell out of anything else in Columbia.

No, and no virgin sacrifices either. It was very sad.
