Soon, Californians won't be the only ones obsessing over (and Instagramming) Philz's Mint Mojito coffees. News broke last week that the Bay Area favorite received $15 million in funding and is planning to open 10 more locations in 2015, including shops outside of its home state. To add to the excitement, it was revealed that one of the investors was none other than Snoop Dogg.

While the location of the first non-California-based Philz has yet to be revealed, you can get your fill of the brand's most popular blend, Tesora ($18 per pound), a rich, nutty medium blend, while you wait.

Cross your fingers that an outpost will come to your hometown soon as the aforementioned Mint Mojito, a mint-infused iced coffee available only in stores, is as good as its legions of fans make it out to be.
