Ed Kaufmann of Joe New York gives his tips for making a cappuccino

While we admit we're prone to hit up the Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts around the corner when we're in need of a caffeine boost, there's really nothing we love more than a leisurely cup of joe in our neighborhood coffee shop. It's why we're scouting all across America to find out where you all have your cups of coffee, and we want to know — what's the best cup of coffee you've ever had?
