Guess our February and March get-togethers, in order of best shops, need to be in:
  • Scottsdale
  • Tucson
  • Chandler
  • Phoenix
  • Gilbert
  • Mesa
  • Glendale
per https://www.azcentral.com/story/enterta ... 834942001/

We can do that...

Ahead of National Coffee Day on Wednesday, Sept. 29, WalletHub released a list of the 2021 Best Coffee Cities in America, ranking the 100 biggest cities in America by their "coffee lover-friendliness."

The list used metrics including the number of affordable coffee shops, coffee houses and cafés, the average price of a cappuccino, the number of adult coffee drinkers and more to determine which are the best coffee cities in the U.S.
Possibly excepting Tucson, works for me. :lol:

Phoenix Pholks, survey ready.

I have found that calendars book early (clears throat for Sinkshot). I put together a brief survey for February of when I will be in Phoenix (Feb 21-26). Let's pick a date by checking all dates which work. We can find two shops in the Phoenix metro after we pick a date.

Survey is here. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9FCL6SM
Please respond on the survey and to this thread so we can get a count for the Phoenix area.

Tucson peeps. If interested we can do the same down there. From Feb 28 thru Mar 14.
Las Cruces/El Paso Damas y Caballeros, give a shout, from Mar 16 thru 30.

I would love to take a 2-3 day trip and finally meet up with my coffee brethren from this site. Let me see what I can arrange.

This would be great -- last time out there were 6-7 of us. Would be a delight to meet you in person. Get Yakster and Sosha on the plane with you. We did a crawl in SF years ago.

RapidCoffee has rounded up a shop in Mesa w/a lever and there are numerous shops which we missed last time that are calling our names, Home-Barista™️ ☕️ers.
