My wife and I are one week into a three week stay in Atlanta, and I'm having espresso withdrawal symptoms. I've been keeping an eye out everywhere we drive for serious espresso/coffee shops, but all I've seen are Starbucks and Caribou. Yelp doesn't offer much help either, at least not in the area of town we're in, which is Buckhead.
Do Georgians just not appreciate espresso as much as people farther north or west? Or am I just looking for crema in all the wrong places? I'm starting to think Atlanta is the anti-Portland. :-(
