Coffee in an important part of the day for a lot of us. And although some are content with making a quick pot at home, so many more love grabbing a cup from a coffee shop. Whether it's through the drive thru or going inside where they can smell the fresh ground beans and bakery items and to feel the camaraderie of their java partners in crime, they love it all. Sometimes the bigger chains don't offer the best brew or experience, but it's not always easy to find a really good independent coffee shop and even harder to get the perks that come with the big chains. Well, JoJo is aiming to make it a lot easier.

You'll get a great cup of Jo from a barista that is passionate about their craft, great perks, and patron some of the best mom and pop establishments around.
