In Saranac Lake, coffee lovers delight at Origin Coffee, where entrepreneur Jecinda Wilson sources sustainable coffees from around the world. A trip to stay on a coffee farm in Costa Rica inspired her to start this well-loved Saranac Lake coffee house, where locals line up on crisp mornings for inventive and hot drinks.
