SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — If you live in Midway you probably already know about this haunted spot but for outsiders looking for somewhere new to get their cup of joe, you have to check out Haunted Grounds Coffee.
Courtney Bautista, head boo-rista and part owner of Haunted Grounds, spoke with WSAV NOW about the coffee shop that recently opened in the town of just over 2,000.
The most important thing Bautista wanted people to know? They’re not a typical coffee shop.
“Haunted Grounds is where you would go to hear ghost stories and have coffee at the same time,” Bautista said. Sitting around the campfire? No. Sit on one of their comfy couches as you admire the décor and talk to experts about the paranormal.

She said that one of the things she was most excited about was the opportunity to get more involved in Midway’s community.
“That’s why we’re hosting the trunk or treat now,” she explained.

Bautista personally came up with the recipes for each individual drink, drawing on her own experience as a barista prior to Haunted Grounds.
There are four fall and Halloween-themed drinks that are coming to the menu this month including a spiced apple chai beverage that tastes, as Bautista said, like autumn in a cup.
The Frankenberry frappuccino includes huckleberry syrup — something that tastes like a mixture of cherry and raspberry — and the frankenberry Halloween cereal you see in stores. There are also the Booberry and Count Chocula frappes that are
Don’t know what to choose? No stress. They’ve got coffee flights you can give a try.
