Aware Coffee & Tea Lounge opened earlier this year in the northwest part of the valley and specializes in organic espresso and teas and homemade syrups and purees. Owner Richie Liu previously operated Tea Time Café for several years before updating his concept and opening Aware Coffee & Tea Lounge. Liu realized that if he wanted to expand his customer base, he would need to reinvent his shop and out of that, Aware Coffee & Tea Lounge was born. To create the perfect coffee shop, Liu traveled to other major cities visiting coffee shops for inspiration, taking what he loved from each shop and adding it to his own.

Aware Coffee & Tea Lounge offers a comfortable and calm atmosphere with high-top tables and couches along with unique art décor. Offerings include the signature lattes: bourbon vanilla, mocha, mint mojito, lavender and more. Specialty coffees include Chemex pour over, cold brew and Vietnamese cold brew. For the tea lovers, offerings include premium black tea, Jasmine green, Earl Grey, signature milk teas and smoothies. Drink add-ons include boba, lychee jelly, egg pudding or aloe vera.

Open daily Monday to Friday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends.
