Just heard from Michael Gonzales, the owner of Cafe Bella Coffee in New Mexico. He has a web site called New Mexico Coffee Map which is exactly what it says. Thought I’d share it in case you plan to be in New Mexico and want to find a good coffee shop. I’m sure Michael would be happy to help you find a good coffee shop.

When you think of San Antonio, do you automatically think of coffee? Probably not. But that doesn’t mean that the coffee culture in San Antonio should be underestimated.
Although the Alamo City is known for its record-breaking temperatures throughout the summer months and beyond, San Antonians are still known to enjoy a cup of Joe, or two, or three – hot, iced, or frozen to beat the heat.
San Antonio Coffee: Where It All Begins
San Antonio is home to a number of coffee roasters, including the aptly named San Antonio Coffee Roasters. San Antonio Coffee Roasters sets the tone by purchasing high-grade, top-quality beans for fresh roasting, in business since 1979.
SA Coffee Roasters offers standard coffee roasts, along with a wide range of specialty beans that are roasted to order. These include Brazil Santos Full City Roast, Jamaican Blue Mountain Full City Roast, a regular or decaf Italian roast, and much more.
Other notable San Antonio roasters include The Brown Coffee Company, in business since 2005. Brown offers prime fresh roasted coffee and professional coffee equipment for wholesale clients. Brown also stands out by offering Brew This! Workshops that cater to coffee consumers at all levels to provide a relaxed environment to discuss coffee-related topics and enjoy coffee cupping.
San Antonio Coffee: Where to Drink
Beyond behind-the-scenes roasters, San Antonio offers coffee lovers a long list of unique cafés, outside of cookie-cutter chains like Starbucks. For starters, the San Antonio coffee culture is best observed in a relaxing coffee shop like Candlelight Café – that also happens to serve beer and wine.

Back in April my wife and I, and another couple took a long weekend in Los Angeles and one of the places we visited, besides Disneyland, was Intelligentsia. They have several locations, but we visited the Venice Beach one, which opened 3 years ago.
