There's nothing like a cup of hot or iced coffee to give you that much-needed energy boost to tackle the day ahead.

For some, getting that caffeine kick truly makes a difference, and we don't blame you. It can be hard waking up Monday morning to go to work after 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 assistance to get that extra pep in our step.

No matter how often you find yourself in line at your local cafe or drive-thru, everyone has a special coffee shop they love visiting. But is it the best coffee shop in all of New Hampshire?

Widely-acclaimed family magazine Reader's Digest shared a list of the best coffee shops in all 50 states, including New Hampshire. With hundreds of qualified contenders throughout the Granite State, this couldn't have been an easy decision to make. But based on glowing customer reviews and "roasting reputation", certain places did indeed stand out among the rest, including one lucky establishment in downtown Hanover.

According to Reader's Digest, Dirt Cowboy Cafe is the best coffee shop in New Hampshire.

Dirt Cowboy Cafe is just steps away from Dartmouth College's campus, and has been open since 1993. Getting a beverage here means that you're not only savoring a delicious and rich cup of 100% Arabica coffee, but one made with beans "freshly roasted to order and shipped the very next morning." Reader's Digest mentions this noteworthy characteristic, along with Dirt Cowboy Cafe's extensive tea selection, "hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows", and "shabby-chic ambiance."

So, there you have it. Congratulations to everyone at Dirt Cowboy Cafe for the well-deserved shoutout. We wish you all the best as you continue to serve the community, one beverage at at a time.
