For National Coffee Day, we're honoring some of the best coffee shops around the US.
Forget Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts. Every state has its beloved local haunt where you can grab a cup of joe or a foamy masterpiece of latte art and unwind.
We found the best coffee shop in every state by looking at expert reviews and local recommendations.
ALABAMA: O'Henry's Coffees is there to keep Birmingham hyper-caffeinated with its signature Gibraltar Quad Shot: four shots of espresso and a hint of milk. ALASKA: Jitters is so good it can give you just that, if you drink too much. In a hurry? Grab a coffee from its coffee truck, right in the shop's Eagle River parking lot. ARIZONA: Cartel Coffee Lab is a great, six-location local chain. Its single-origin coffee is roasted in-house and served with fresh pastries daily.
- Coffee looses 60% of carbon dioxide--its flavour--when it is ground! That is why it is of utmost importance to pack it as quickly as possible.
- The characteristics of different coffee bean varieties react most differently in pod brewing than when drip brewed.
- Roasted beans in the northern Italian tradition (normale), or in the southern Italian tranditon (tostattura scura) are guaranteed to have the thickest crema you've ever seen! Good luck in finding them.
- In brewing coffee, use fresh cold water; hot water produces a stale taste and water provided by a water softener gives an off bland taste to the coffee.
Why brew one cup instead of a pot?
- There is less waste with pods.
- No loose grounds with pods, all self-contained.
- No messy coffee pots or brewing baskets to clean.
- No measuring, no filters, no staleness, no breakable glass carafe. Nothing but amazingly convenient better tasting coffee all of the time.
