Nearly 40 coffee, tea and chocolate shops in San Diego County are participating in the seventh annual San Diego Caffeine Crawl, which kicks off Friday.
Jason Burton organizes caffeine crawls across the country. He said San Diego’s coffee scene is as good as, if not better than, what Los Angeles and the Bay Area have to offer.
He said San Diego has been and continues to be innovative in incorporating different ingredients that represent its population.
“A lot of those ingredients that are brought in to coffee, you’re starting to see in other parts of the country, but I’ve had some of the most unique coffee-based drinks I’ve ever had in San Diego,” Burton said.
