    World-class coffee, friendly service, an eclectic and never repetitive music selection, and two floors filled to the brim with tables make this the best café I've found for getting work done.

    They do a ton of open mic night type events upstairs making this a difficult place to get something done in the evenings.

    Not sure about American standards, but by my European standards their "small" is enormous, and everything else is comically large.

    Four Barrel Coffee pour overs. The barista is very helpful in helping you select the coffee of your dreams. Just describe what you are looking for and they will do the rest.

    This place caters to laptop squatters, anyone who wants to go to a cafe & spend lots of time working. Top floor packed with desks and outlets, and the WiFi is pretty fast. The coffee is just fine.

    The house blend is a mix of Heirloom Ethiopia and Nicaragua beans. The cup is balanced, with a fresh mouth and acidity of acai berry that is matched smartly with a dark chocolate body.

    If you order a large iced latte make sure to get an extra shot as 2 shots becomes far too diluted.

    Today's cold brew blends "Andino" (Caturra farm in Columbia) and "Java Luetic" (Typica & Ateng- Java Sunda). Cup has a soft mouth with a complex yet clean body. Watermelon, wheat grass, pistachio.

    The Qorema Heirloom beans of Ethiopia were prepared as a 12-hour cold brew. The brightness of the bean is captured but acidity is softened somewhat. Back & side tongue mouth flavor of chocolate orange

    You should know this place is owned by the Highway Community, a church. On the bright side all the profits go to charities, making them almost a non-profit

    The Las Palomas family beans cultivated by Pache & Bourbon from Guatemala we're available as a cold brew. This brew style hones in on semi-washed bean flavor; earthy spinach and dry, semi-sweet coco.

    It's $2.20 to add a shot of espresso to your drink vs. .75 cents at chain coffee shops, not worth the upcharge

    If you do your best coding with a beer or margarita at your side, you'll have to BYO, sadly. Don't despair -- most blenders fit in backpacks.

    Downstairs can get crowded pretty quickly, but often has faster table turnover than upstairs. However, it's quieter by far upstairs.

    You can overhear people catching up on life with their loved ones, startups discussing fundraising, etc. Makes you realize on so many levels that whatever it is that you're facing, isn't unique to you
