Remember those vending machines that would spit out a paper cup and dribble a watery, coffee-like beverage into it? Well, no more. Our coffee standards have changed radically in the last decade, and we expect a quality brew even in a drive-through.
So Patch wants to know — what's your favorite place to get coffee? We're not talking lattes or espresso (topics for another day) but just your basic cup of joe. Do you prefer the consistency of a Dunkin' Donuts or a Starbucks, or are you devoted to a small shop that grinds its own beans?
Is it the caffeine you crave, or the ritual of sitting down with something warm? Is the coffee you make at home better than what you can find at a restaurant, or vice-versa?
Each week, Patch will throw out a different category of food or drink and ask you to tell us about your favorites. So join in and let's see what kind of coffee comes out on top!
