You can’t really underestimate the importance of coffee.
It’s the lifeblood for so many people every single day.
And one of the main ways people get their coffee is by visiting cafés.
Some cafés are living in the future. These coffee shops have figured it all out. And you deserve to gaze upon them and marvel at how clever they are…

If you collect a bucket of litter from the beach, this coffee shop gives you a free cup of coffee! That’s a pretty good deal.
This café has two sizes
This coffee shop slides the “N” when they’re open
It’s either OPEN or NOPE and I appreciate that very, very much.
