    CM slings Cuvee coffee roasted on three La Marzocco FB 80s (Italian for "Fancy Makers of Delicious Coffee"), and they pride themselves on always having a wide selection of direct-trade beans. Read more

    Delicious espresso drinks. Great atmosphere and plenty of power outlets. Secured wifi is a big plus. Definitely check it out if you need a place to work.

    My favorite cafe downtown. Ample plugs, choices between comfort or work-style seating, open floor plan and giant windows if you're in the mood to people watch. Get a Cortado (it's not on the menu)!

    The best coffee in Austin. Don't get repelled by their hipsta look (I mean, it's Austin right?) - they definitely know what they do with coffee.

    Great barista! Love the Japanese green tea. Best latte art. Love the wall deco. Nice bathrooms. Careful with the bus tubs though.

    This place is seriously serious about their coffee. Atmosphere is trendy, minimalist, but (true to Austin spirit) laid-back. Mezzanine seating is the best.

    It was very nice and urban. If you're into the non traditional coffee shop then you will love the place. The chai was alright, typical. The Cappuccino was better than Starbucks but not amazing.

    Love the French Press coffee. Now I determined to buy to make it at home everyday. My friend suggested www.infinitebasics.com and I bought one and loving it.

    Had a mocha and it was the perfect blend, not overly sweet like so many other mochas. Great cups and art too!

    One of the very few coffee shops to pour with a bottomless portafilter. Their ingenious way to convert from spouts? Sawed them off and saved $.

    Summer pro-tip: Order a Cafe Freddo. Off-menu, charged with espresso, and deliciously refreshing.

    French press is done in advance in small batches so you don't have to wait and still get the fresh taste.

    The chai is decent, but a little bland. If you like it spicy, I recommend against this one. (And I'm a lightweight, when it comes to spice in my chai)
