Yes, Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks make a great cup of coffee. But their stores are everywhere. If you’ve been following us at POM, you know darn well that we prefer to eat local, drink local and be local. This mentality is no different when referring to our favorite morning beverage.
Intelligentsia now resides in LA and NYC as well, but it originated on the north side of Chicago, back in ’95. If you don’t live in the city, not to worry. Counter Coffee in Forest Park features this wonderful java on a regular basis. Their dark roast is a fine choice but we prefer a more balanced offering (just like with our IPAs) like their exclusive “Counter Blend.” And what pairs best with a hot cup of coffee? Well a donut of course! If you get there early enough, Counter Coffee carries a lovely assortment from Glazed and Infused on Saturdays and Sundays. We like the old fashioned and red velvet.
Cheers to a better cup of joe!
