Best Java in SLC.
Steve, the owner, operates the store from the front lines so to speak. Always working on new and interesting drinks, soon to come, snowcone java. I know, maybe not your cup of tea but if you are already great at the basics why not expand?
I've drank coffee in Portland, Boise, St Louis, ground my own, bought pre-ground and this is one of the best I have ever been to/had, the atmosphere is congenial, open, customers (long time and new) rub elbows and chat, people are encouraged to hang out and visit. There are few if any extremists, the majority are open and very friend, in my experience.
They also have free high speed wifi.
Come on down, try out SLCs best kept coffee secret, or better yet try it in milk shake form.
