coffeemakerWinter is very much upon us, and with that comes one main thing: the beautiful, snowy wonderland that upstate New York becomes, which makes it all that much more difficult to get out of bed in the morning.

We’ve been there—it’s no fun having to start your day scraping frost off your car, or even worse, getting it out from under a snow bank. Not to mention having to get to work after all that—dealing with harsh winters is work enough!

One thing we’ve found that makes it easier to get through the tough days in the winter is good coffee. Whether you’re a lifelong connoisseur or simply drink it to stay warm, there’s no denying that a satisfyiing cup of coffee is the best way to wake up in the morning.

With that in mind, here are some of our favorite local coffee shops near Rome, NY.
