For the past two consecutive years, we’ve given over serious page time on Sprudge to a seasonal feature called “Build-Outs Of Summer“, in which we profile new and exciting specialty coffee spaces under construction. Our original class of 2012 featured destinations like Artifact Coffee in Baltimore, the Counter Culture Coffee Training Center in Boston, Everyman Espresso SoHo in New York City, and Tandem Coffee Roasters in Portland, Maine. The new class in 2013 featured top spots Commonwealth Coffee in Denver, Freese Coffee Company in Helsinki, Little Sister Coffee Maker in Winnipeg, The Cupping Room in Hong Kong, and many, many more.

This year we’re doing it again, and we need your help.
