We all need caffeine, especially on a Monday morning before work. We're all so used to grabbing one from a drive thru somewhere, however as today is International Coffee Day I wanted to support our local businesses by sharing their coffee shops in this blog! What better time to share them than as the days are getting colder and we have 6 months of autumn/winter to look forward too!
