These Unexpected Cities Have the Best Coffee in the U.S.

So how did we do it? Resonance helped us identify the top 20 small cities (less than 600,000 in population) for coffee shops, and we selected cities with offerings ranging from great hikes, to museum tours, to pure relaxation—all with a perfect morning joe.
