Drum roll please…..

You have voted, and the results are in for the 2014 Best of the Year coffee labels at Lizzy’s Fresh Coffee. Let’s be honest–it was hard to pick from this stack of 66 great shots of 2014. They were funny, cool, colorful and crazy. No doubt we got a little smile from every one of them. The time must come, though, when we all get to decide on the pics we think are the BEST of the BEST. We rallied our customers, and the photographers rallied their friends and family, and this is how 2014 has landed.
