The DeKalb Farmer’s market has the freshest, glossiest, most delicious beans… and I can make that super-fresh coffee at home too.

Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee in Roswell is fabulous. Charitable too as they help support fair trade coffee growers.

Dancing Goats and Java Monkey are both excellent, and are good corporate citizens as well.

SF Coffee in the Highlands. The only beans I’ve bought for the last 8 years.

anything roasted by batdorf & bronson is world class. their coffee is served at:

-aurora
-dancing goats (they have a different blend than aurora)
-@ bacchanalia (french pressed)
-outwrite bookstore (although, i don’t think they brew it correctly, it’s not as good)

batdorf & bronson (despite their pompous lawyeresque names) roast coffee on par with such titans as stumptowns coffee out of portland, and ritual roasters or blue bottle in san francisco. batdorf & bronson has the best coffee in the city. there is no question and it is not up for debate. except maybe burger king. ahem.

if the question where ‘who has the best coffee shop’, the choice wouldn’t be so clear. i guess i would vote san francisco coffee roaster’s south ponce location.

Octane coffee. Their cappuccino is THE BEST. The baristas have mastered the art of foamed milk. It always reminds me why I order au laits or lattes elsewhere, to avoid dry, poorly executed foamed milk. Also good eco-citizens. They are an outlet for Counter Culture Coffee — fresh roasted, lovely blends or micro lots, and good for my socially conscious soul . . .

Cafe Campesino: This company is the ORIGINAL “fair trade” coffee distributor. Before it was cool. These people were affiliated with Habitat for Humanity (whose global headquarters is also in Americus), and they developed relationships with individual farmers in the areas they served with Habitat. Go here and buy your coffee, and encourage your local coffee shop to do the same.
