RE: Who Has The Best Coffee?

The answer is “some little independent coffee shop near you.” I’m not a Starbucks hater, They make a specific kind of coffee – a bastardization of Italian dark roast – and it’s okay, for what it is. What it really is, is something like McDonald’s: widely available and generally reliable. Consequently, I drink Starbucks. If I wanted a great espresso near me, I would go to ¬†Gelato Bar & Espresso Cafe on Tujunga in Studio City.
