It’s also important to remember that the best coffee is usually found in smaller, independent coffee shops rather than the large chain cafés. This is because the smaller shops take more care in selecting and roasting their coffee beans, and they also usually have a more personal approach to customer service. Finally, remember that the best time to enjoy a good cup of coffee is early in the morning before the rush hour begins. This is when the coffee is at its freshest and you can take your time to enjoy it.
