Most of life’s queries can be addressed with a combination of two simple things: a nice cup of coffee and a good, sturdy map.

Here in 2023 we’d like to invite you to take part in Sprudge Maps, a searchable global compendium of coffee bars presented in partnership with Pacific Barista Series and La Marzocco.

We launched Sprudge Maps in 2020 as a free, easy to update mapping service for cafes, supporting many hundreds of great coffee bars across the United States and Canada (and around the world). Now with well over 1,000 registrations worldwide, the goal of Sprudge Maps is two-pronged: for consumers, this is a discovery tool for great cafes in your area, and for coffee businesses, it’s an easy way to be listed on a directly updatable global resource. Sprudge Maps is free to use for both consumers and businesses, and supports our partnership with Apple Maps.

Along the way we developed Sprudge Maps Spotlights, a curated feature series highlighting notable coffee bars and the unique individuals behind them. We’ve run dozen of these spotlights over the past two years, including features on Maru Coffee in Los Angeles, Broadway Cafe in Kansas City, Anodyne Coffee in Milwaukee, The Coffee Studio in Chicago, Watson’s Counter in Seattle, and many more.

We’ve recently updated Sprudge Maps with improved UX, and the maps now live within the Sprudge.com homepage. The new url is sprudge.com/sprudgemaps (the classic SprudgeMaps.com still works as well).

Now as we look ahead, we’re inviting great cafes near and far to join us on Sprudge Maps, and be considered for future Sprudge Maps Spotlights. That’s where you come in!
