There's nothing like a steaming hot cup of coffee (or iced, whatever floats your boat) to give you that much-needed energy boost to tackle the day ahead.

For some, getting that caffeine kick can make a difference in the day, and we don't blame you. It can be hard waking up on Monday morning to go to work after already dealing with the Sunday scaries. And even if you enjoy your job, that doesn't change the fact that our bodies are tired, and may need some extra assistance to get that pep in our step.

This writer is by no means a coffee aficionado, but rather thrives on iced vanilla chais, cinnamon dolce lattes, various fruity refreshers, and special seasonal drinks. In essence, she tends to go for the sweet stuff that isn't as loaded on espresso as other options.

But regardless of what your coffee preferences are or how often you find yourself in line at your local cafe or drive-thru, everyone has that special coffee shop they love visiting. Of course, many would gravitate towards the large chains like Dunkin' and Starbucks (woot woot), but what about the beloved local businesses that call just New Hampshire home, or at least New England?
