    • If there is no email listed or there is only a "Contact Us" form
      • Add an additional search term to the Google search -- "email address" which will sometimes pull up a listing for the email address
      • Look for other listings of the coffee shop like blogs or review sites where someone may have listed the email of the coffee shop
    • If there is not web site:
      • Look for coffee shop review sites, local restaurant sites (ie www.Yelp.com, www.b4-u-eat.com, Citysearch.com) that will list the address, phone number and sometimes email address of the coffee shop

        • Sometimes if there is a "Contact us" form on the website, the barista will direct you back to that instead of a specific web page

      • Thank the barista either way
