This story in the Detroit News got me thinking about the best place to get a cup of coffee here in Michigan. The article states that " Consumer Reports taste test found McDonald's Corp.'s coffee tastes better and costs less than brew from Starbucks Corp., Burger King Holdings Inc. and Dunkin' Donuts Inc." I like to drink my coffee black, but McDonald's coffee has seemed so strong in the past that yesterday when I had a cup of joe from McDonald's I added one cream and sugar. I have to say, it was a pretty good cup of coffee. I don't think it was the best I have ever had by any means although the price would be hard to beat.
Here is a brief (so many coffee shops, so little time) list of some of my favorite places to get my coffee fix across Michigan. The list is in no particular order - I love them all :).
- North Woods Coffee Co. - Coldwater
- The Bean Counter - New Buffalo
- L. A.'s Coffee Cafe - Three Rivers
- Java Joe's - St. Ignace
- Nicky's Coffee Bar at the Stray Dog Bookshop - Three Rivers
- Beaners Coffee (yeah it's a franchise, but it started in East Lansing and that is where I fell in love with it)
There are so many other coffee shops that I see and jot down in my memory bank as places to try out sometime. I wish I had the time to stop at them all, but alas I do not.
Feel free to add to this list in the comments for coffee shops in Michigan that you absolutely love. I will certainly add them to my list.
Have a very happy Friday!
