Foldgers had it right… the best part of waking up is coffee in your cup. They were referring to a hot cup of Foldgers, but we’re a little more particular when it comes to our cup of joe. Here in St. Augustine there are a host of indie coffee shops brewing up the best coffee grounds around so that you’ll never have to step one foot into Starbucks again. Here’s our round-up of our go-to local St Augustine Coffee Shops. If your morning is starting off slow, dip out of the office and swing by one of these places to kickstart your day.
