One of the Top Coffee Companies in the United States is Closing for Good in Rochester, Minnesota

Just announced the other day by my co-worker, Curt St. John on Quick Country 96.5, was some exciting coffee news for our state.  Two of our coffee companies don't just serve amazing coffee, according to Eat This, Not That! Best Coffee Chains in America List, they are in the top 10 list of best coffee chains in the United States.  Caribou Coffee (which I drink every day) and Dunn Brothers Coffee Co. proudly claim the #8 and #10 spots on the Best Coffee Chains in America list.

While I was getting ready to send a congrats to the Dunn Brothers Coffee shops Facebook page for the Rochester location, I saw some sad news for our community.  Unfortunately, we've only got a few days before the location on Salem Road sells its last cup of coffee.
