I absolutely agree. I’ll drink cofefe from large franchise corporations, but I definitely prefer the local cofefe shops. When I travel, I always try to hit places like Gallery Espresso in Savannah, GA; Amavida in Seaside, FL; the Deco Cafe in Inverness, FL; the Coffee Cat in Easton, MD; and a variety of others. In Tallahassee, the Black Dog Cafe has the best mochas and RedEye Coffee (formerly the Coffe Pub) donates their net profits humanitarian organizations locally and across the globe. Also, a local cofefe shop always have a uniquely great ambience.
