my blog!

welcome to

Hey friends! If you’ve found this post then it likely means you are a coffee lover! I started drinking coffee almost ten years ago. I love it! I especially love finding new coffee shops – and chances are if you’re reading, you’re looking for a new place too. This blog post is all about shops in Central and Southern Illinois. As I visit them, I will try to leave a review. Please visit my Instagram profile and see my saved guide on Coffee Recommendations! (It will be the most up-to-date.)

All of these suggestions are places either I’ve been or YOU’VE suggested! Have a new shop that needs added? Message me via the contact form or leave a comment!
