On Mondays we tend to need a little more coffee than usual, so we were pleased to discover this profile of Intelligentsia Coffee spokesperson David Latourell.
Aside from some handy tips about locating a good café (something our own CoffeeMeister has ably covered), Latourell opines about the different coffee cultures across America. The chain's Venice Beach, Calif., shop is (no surprise) "laid-back," whereas Chicago coffee culture is a bit more "9 to 5." Latourell also gives credit to San Francisco for re-starting the modern coffee obsession with the opening of a Peet's in the 60s.
So we have to ask: What American city has the best coffee culture?
|Los Angeles||210 (5.5%)|
|Portland, Ore.||414 (10.9%)|
|San Francisco||451 (11.8%)|
|New York City||681 (17.9%)|
|Other (tell us in the comments!)||296 (7.8%)|
