Coffee Stops

Coffee, man. I tell ya, it is God’s gift to the senses. The aroma, the warmth, the taste, the feeling; most of us can’t live whiteout it (and why would you?). On that early morning drive to the mountain the coffee stop is a travellers sanctuary. All anyone needs is a delicious snack, proper cup and (if desperate) a comfortable place to take a shit. That’s it. The brew its self is key, but we become attached to the whole package, the familiar faces, the atmosphere; all that cheesy stuff. We’re taking the guess work out of the equation, if you find yourself in one of these key North American Mountain towns, here are 10 gems that’ll treat you proper.

Where do I stop for coffee? Dunkin Donuts, cause ‘merica runs on Dunkin!
— Pat Moore
Dunkin' Donuts didn't make the list but we thought we would shout it out since Pat Moore loves it!
