Caribou & Dunn Bros Rank High on America’s Favorite Coffee Chains
Best Life ranked 20 major coffee chains from favorite to least favorite, and two Minnesota chains came out ahead.
When it comes to coffee, Minnesota knows how to do it right. Not only do we boast countless local coffee roasteries and independent coffee shops around the state, but two of the nations largest coffee chains call the Land of 10,000 Lakes home. Brooklyn Center-based Caribou Coffee and St. Paul-based Dunn Brothers Coffee both made a new list of national coffee chains ranked best to worst, and -- to our caffeinated delight -- both ranked relatively well.
