When I think about the bad old days of coffee in Atlanta, when you could still get away with selling a cup of hot black water fit for a gas station and call your place a cafe, I’m afraid I sound like an old man talking about walking 5 miles uphill both to and from school. To young ears, it might not sound real.

A decade ago, you might have found yourself driving halfway across town in search of a decent espresso. You could count your options for locally roasted beans on less than one hand. Don’t even get me started about the embarrassing things in the glass cases they called croissants. I mention it because it is hard to believe our current coffee situation in Atlanta. We are in the midst of an embarrassment of riches.
