ME GOTS TO HAVE-A MY JAVA
Best cup of coffee or espresso in the city of Jacksonville. Still needing feedback.
Said cuppa has to be hot, tasty, have lots of caffeine, and have the capacity to wake me up the morning. Trust me. This is a huge challenge. Email me at Jacksonville, I will put your suggestion on a tallied list. Later, I will travel around town, sampling one cup per day. I will ultimately proclaim a winner in this column.
I'm waiting to hear from you!
