(SALEM, Ore.) - Coffee is ingrained in US culture. It is as American as apple pie, Halloween, and denim blue jeans. The nation might have been late to finding coffee, but it undoubtedly transformed the bean scene across the world for the better.

America’s love affair with coffee started in 1773 thanks to the Boston Party that switched from British tea leaves to coffee to rebel against King George III. Since then, countless coffee shops have popped up in cities across the US.

Nowadays, Americans and tourists are never far away from a delicious cup of joe, but some spots have turned coffee-making into an art form. Here are the top coffee destinations in America.
