National Geographic Travel magazine has listed Spokane as one of America's top coffee cities in its March 2018 issue.
The magazine partnered with Resonance Consultancy and pulled data to figure out which cities had the most coffee shops per capita for cities under 600,000 in population. The magazine editors then chose their favorites to feature. Spokane made the cut.
"This kind of recognition in such an internationally respected magazine is wonderful news," said Visit Spokane President & CEO, Cheryl Kilday. "Greater Spokane is filled to the brim with cozy coffee shops and a culture that has embraced the art of making a perfect cup. It's nice to see people are taking notice of our destination."
This is the second time this year National Geographic has recognized Spokane in its Best Small Cities series. In January, Spokane was listed as one of the best small cities in the U.S. It was recognized as one of the hippest and most caffeinated cities.
