...And Washington D.C.

Any true coffee lover knows that it doesn't matter where you are -- you always want a cup of joe. Whether you partied too hard in Austin last night, or you need a midday jolt in San Francisco, Foursquare is here to help you get the best brew wherever you travel.

The discovery app dug through their data and found the most popular shops for coffee in every state and Washington D.C. Results are based on top-rated places that have a designated coffee shop. 

Surprisingly, not all locations were your average coffee house. For example, while in Bismarck, North Dakota, Foursquare users love the espresso at Fireflour Pizza + Coffee Bar. And users in San Francisco, California prefer to the espresso at the floral and garden center Flora Grubb Gardens.

Whether the locations below are places that also happen to service coffee, or establishments solely dedicated to java, these locations are worth your time (and Instagram snaps).
