Do you dig ducks? Are you a coffee connoisseur? Do you know the best places in Lodi for a jug o' java?

If you answered a resounding "YESSIREEBOB!" to the preceding questions, then you may be up to the task of finding a regular haunt for Edwin Aylesbury and Maurice LeMallard, better known to readers as "Ducks In Lodi."

Anyone who reads my weekly strip in Lodi Living will know that my duckly duo loves coffee. But I've labored to find a real-life local setting in which the waddlers can procure their caffeine fix. 

There are the obvious choices: House of Coffees, Java Stop, Starbucks. But I want to hear from you, the readers (and coffee shop owners). In which coffee spot should Edwin and Maurice take roost?

Send me your suggestions, persuade me with your reasoning, and I will feature that location in upcoming comic strips, along with an appearance by the owner and/or baristas.
