Coffee: it’s what fuels most city-goers and gets them through the day. When a hot cup of coffee meets your lips in the morning, it’s truly liquid heaven. Many of us are dedicated Starbuckians or Dunkin Donuts diehards. A regular morning coffee joint is a daily ritual, and when the employees there know local patrons by their names, you know you are truly at home.
