Every coffee lover knows the struggle of scouting for that perfect cup of coffee that’s both rich in flavor and not too bitter. Ask the coffee expert in your life (everyone’s got one) about their ideal cup of coffee and they’ll go on a monologue about brewing techniques, coffee machines, and coffee brands – it really is a very special type of science.

If you’re on the hunt for your next caffeine fix, consider passing by these tried-and-tested coffee spots!
