There's a new coffee shop coming along very slowly in downtown Raleigh, NC. It's called Iris Coffee Lab, and it's a collaboration with Black and White Roasters (of some sort). The B&W van has been there recently, so it must be getting close.
It took them a year to get through city permits (Raleigh makes you work). Not sure if anyone else has heard of this or seen it, but it's looking like a good spot. Plus I'm needing to befriend a professional barista.
