America's Best Coffee Bars
Behind the lengthy wooden bar at this neighborhood coffeehouse, passionate baristas chat with customers about brewing processes and the farmers behind their organic beans. Coffee is roasted upstairs, and during warmer months, regulars lounge on the back deck and hang out with staff during the occasional summer barbecue or local band’s rock show. The company is even planning a new roasting works down the street that will allow independent roasters to work under their blanket brand, Dark Matter. starloungecoffee.com
