1. Local Coffee
Multiple locations, localcoffeesa.com
Serious about coffee, the neighborhood java brewmasters at Local treat bean roasting like an art. Self-admittedly “obsessed” with crafting the best cup of joe, baristas offer a rotating lineup of new coffee from different roasters around the country on a weekly basis. The sleek, modern space and relaxed ambience of all three locations, including the most recent (and much anticipated) spot at the Pearl, is perfect for catching up with friends or weeding through your inbox—this year Local was rightfully named “best place to work on your laptop,” too. Readers salute Local for keeping them not just caffeinated with damn good coffee, but with the direct-trade, organic kind of black gold we can all get behind.
