I was down in NC and went to a coffee shop called 3 cups where they are rather obsessed with coffee. They source the beans themselves, often developing personal relationships with individual small coffee producers. They then (I think) roast the beans, they certainly told me that I shouldn't get one particular type because it had just been roasted and it takes a few days post-roasting before the beans are at their peak. They then give you an individual french press with your coffee, along with a timer so you know when it is ready. The coffee was amazing, I wanted to drink it black to taste all the flavors. I realize I have not had this experience in NY, though I assume it must exist. Thoughts?
