America's Best Coffee Cities 2013
No. 7 Minneapolis/St. Paul
Here’s more proof that long winters create a hot market for great coffee. The Twin Cities’ version of Starbucks is the sustainably farmed Caribou Coffee, while Dunn Bros. offers coffee from microlots roasted in small batches. Costa Rica Las Lajas Honey Coffee, for instance, has apple, caramel, and wine-like notes. Explore Minneapolis’s unconventional side at the Angry Catfish Bicycle Shop & Coffee Bar, where you can sip single-origin coffee (including a smoked sea salt mocha) and get tips on cycling gear—a nice combo in this fitness-minded town.
