Proper coffee

brandon | Apr 24, 2007 06:00 AM

I just moved here and am looking for excellent coffee. I've worked in coffee houses for years and while it's given me a great affinity for strong, dark brew, it's also made me quite particular.

Ideally, I'd like to find some dark-roasted Ethiopian Harrar. Signs of the place I'm looking for include the house carrying about 15 varietals not counting flavored or decaffinated coffee (if a house even has flavored coffee, it's a bad sign), and frequent local roasting.

I don't care about espresso or atmosphere. I just want a place that has great coffee that I can take home and brew in the morning. I've tried Rue de la Course and thought it was terrible. I can't afford to try a dozen places until I find the right one, so I hope you guys can help.

Anyone got any ideas?
