“Best Coffee in Boise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

Not a Starbucks fan. The beans seem burnt to me - bitter. Moxie uses a different bean (arabica perhaps) that does not have that bitter taste. We have loved Moxie for as many years as I can remember. They are local. They don't have the cookie-cutter look and feel of the dark, furniture showrooms of the SB's, and they haven't given ridiculous terminology to their products.

“Great Coffee!”

I have visited many locations. my favorite location is the Moxie near Spectrum St. (near the cinema) It is quick and convenient when you are staying at one of the hotels across the street.

“Starbucks, Beware!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

I've never been a huge fan of Starbucks, nor am I a hardcore coffee drinker, but I LOVE Moxie Java! All of the flavored drinks are to die for, whether hot mochas in the winter, or iced frappes in the summer. As an added bonus, the prices are cheaper than Starbucks, the choices easier, and the enterior more whimsical.
