Hey coffee lovers!

I’ve been really trying to shop more locally this year, and that includes things as small as my morning coffee. Obviously Starbucks is awesome. It’s a staple, and always consistent when you need a delicious cup of coffee to get you through the day. But here are 5 local coffee shops that can also do that!
