    Hallelujah! The expansion to Ohio has been long overdue. I just hope there will be an outlet near Akron (Ohio of course. But Wadsworth would be better)for French Roast Coffee. Absolutely the best flavor ever – no contest! Try French Roast with hot fudge and smokehouse almonds. Fantastic if I do say so.
