Current Coffee Top 10?

Pei | May 21, 2009 09:31 PM

A coffee fiend from LA is descending upon my apartment soon, and I need to be armed with the city's best. What am I missing?

Blue Bottle
Graffeo (beans only)
Philz (no espresso)
Ritual Roasters
Four Barrel

I believe his poison is a macchiato, followed closely by a latte with silky foamed milk. Also, are there general feelings about which roasters tend toward what flavors? For example, if he tells me he loves a lighter roast, do I pick one place over another? I don't think it's sane to hit all these places in the two days we have (or is it...?)
