Best Speciality Coffee Drinks, 2017: This hip and cozy café on Kennett Square’s main drag serves serious coffee. Specialty roasts from local roaster Ceremony change seasonally, and brew methods include attentive hand pours and expertly pulled espresso. Seasonal drinks, along with sweet and savory bites, round out the menu.

Best Espresso 2016: Philter offers single- origin and seasonal espresso, intermingled with creative twists on the cortado, macchiato and humble latte. The homey location only adds to the exceptional sips.

2015 Best Coffee Shop: Fragrant beans from Ceremony Coffee Roasters in Annapolis, Md., mean your coffee is fresh at this rustic, comfy shop. There’s plenty of foot traffic here, but it’s still a quiet place for conversation or to get a little work done. Try the complex flavors of a pour-over coffee: The slow-drip process will give you time to peruse the tempting food menu.

2014 Best Coffee Shop: Daily specials include four pour-over coffee blends crafted with direct-trade beans from Maryland’s Ceremony Coffee Roasters. Philter’s Chris Thompson uses top-of-the-line brewing gear to create the perfect cup. Don’t leave without trying an espresso shot.
