Whether it's for my own leisure or I'm on a tight deadline, a coffee shop is my ideal workspace. This said, all coffee shops are not created equal.

There are so many things to consider when choosing the right spot, such as where to find a latte so good you can stomach the $6 price tag or what locale will lend itself best to people watching. However, there's nothing that'll make or break a place faster for me than the music.

In my humble opinion, a coffee shop is not, nor will it ever be, a place for Top 40. I'd sooner give up caffeine, than listen to EDM in the AM — save Pitbull and Ke$ha for da club (or don't). Instead, sit back and de-stress to the soulful sounds of Ed Sheeran, Norah Jones, Jamie Lidell, and Corinne Bailey Rae.

Listen to our 25-track coffee shop playlist, below, and be sure to subscribe to the Marie Claire Spotify profile for weekly playlists.
