I'm a bit of a picky coffee drinker. One of those "Starbucks only under duress" kind of people who grinds coffee every morning before making coffee in a bialetti maker and who doesn't drink the drip at work.

So near my hotel in San Francisco next week at a business meeting, I'd really like to drink non-Starbucks. Google tells me I have a few choices close to the Westin on 3rd between Market Street & Mission Street - what do you think? Which should I prioritize and which should I avoid?

Café Gratitude
Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
Blue Bottle Coffee Bar
Boulange de Market
Cafe Madeleine

If you're ever in Atlanta, I'd be happy to give coffee shop tips!
