Let's Talk Coffee and Tea

Boris Carlitov | May 1, 2004 02:18 PM

Let's talk coffee for a moment. What's the best place to get:

(1) American Style Coffee
(2) Espresso
(3) Cappacino
(4) Latte's
(5) Tea

I've got opinions on only some of the above.

(3) I really like Hausbrandt between Locust and Walnut on 15th. Their cappacino is full flavored and extremely smooth. I used to like La Coloumb - if only for their foam - but the coffee doesn't seem to stand up to Hausbrandt (despite La Coloumb being local and Hausbrandt having to ship from italy).

(2) I guess I'm showing my italian bias here - but Illy espresso (say from Miel with a Madaline on the side - best 35 cent cookie you can get) has got to be my favorite.
