What have you tried from Five Elephant? It's on the La Marzocco subscription this month.

As a 5th generation Californian I've too many great roasters in state to even think about going out of state. If I had to choose just 5...

1. Ritual Coffee (CA)
2. Verve (CA)
3. Four Barrel (CA)
4. Black Oak (CA)
5. Sightglass (CA)

And I've got at least 10 more in-state if anyone's interested :wink:
Next time someone's teaching, why don't you get taught..."

My five would have to be:

1. Portola [great S.O.'s, almost nordic roast levels]
2. Merit Coffee [^ similar]
3. S&W Roasting [Great prices]
4. Modest Coffee [decent prices for their subscription]
5. Augie's [Solid medium roast S.O.'s for espresso]

I'm mostly coming from the California OC area and Chicago Hyde Park area.

Working in NYC, I typically stop 2x for an espresso per day. Whenever possible in an independent shop. MOST are serving acidic lemony stuff I am not too fond of.
Found a new place last week, called Felix which I really liked, but their website says they are sold out of everything.
I've found that JoeCoffee in NYC emphasises chocolate and nuts in some of their offerings. Drop into one of their shops and have a chat with the barista. Their Pro Shop on West 21st St has their widest selection.

This Merit? Travelling to San Antonio every year or 2, I've seen their fairly rapid expansion and found the coffee to be pretty solid, nice cafes. Apparently they have one slated to open in nearby Austin.
