Gold Winner Java Blend Coffee Roasters

Silver Winner Steve-O-Reno’s Cappuccino Cafe

Bronze Winner Two If By Sea Cafe, Dartmouth

We know you’ve got a whole lotta love for Java Blend’s cup-o-joe. It’s been roastin’ those beans in-house like bosses since 1938, so you’re guaranteed to get a perfect, piping hot cup of pick-me-up. This cafe pays premium for its imported beans, working closely with farmers in Central America, but keeps it affordable even for the penny-pinching patron. “We train our baristas to present the quality coffee to our customers,” says owner Jim Dikaios of his commitment to great java. “Whether by the pound or the cup, we know what we’re doing.” And for that, we say thank you so much.
