Best Coffeehouse: Cup O’ Joe

From the March 29, 2012 edition

Since the first one opened in German Village in 1994, the city’s coffee drinkers have flocked to Cup O’ Joe for inviting atmosphere and, more importantly, really great coffee.

The business sources green beans from around the world, roasts them in a local warehouse and delivers them to its eight coffee houses within 48 hours. This meticulous process produces the maximum freshness needed for fantastic taste.

Baristas turn beans into a range of hand-crafted drinks that can be enjoyed with a menu of treats created by Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, Pattycake Bakery and other local businesses.

Runners-up: Stauf’s Coffee Roasters, Cafe Brioso
