What are some of the coffee shops you take your out-of-state visitors to see? If you have friends or family flying visiting, and you want to impress them with a good cup of coffee or espresso, where do you go? Are you after good coffee or good and comfy seating?

For me, if I want to impress someone, I’m most likely to take them to one of the following places:

If I were in Tucson, it would be one of the following two places:

I haven’t been to enough of the places in Flagstaff to be able to recommend anything.

What are some of the ones you take friends to?

    I got the chance to stop by Copper Star Coffee on Sunday. Thumbs up! Great place, and love the look. I wasn’t to thrilled with my Macchiato, but overall I enjoyed the experience. I’ll go back there again and would recommend them to others.

    I go to Flagstaff just to go to Macy’s alone. I just love that place, and haven’t found any place like it anywhere. The coffee is out of this world, but it’s their pastries, much of which are vegan and very creative, that really sets it apart. If only there was one in Portland…

    Does Coffee Rush actually stack up to the likes of lux?
    Take this from a frequent visitor of Rush, it is basically, just an corporate coffee shop that happens to be indie.


  4. Coffee Rush has some good quality coffee and that’s why I included it. As far as atmosphere and trendy furniture… I think LUX has everyone beat.

    When visiting Tucson I always take people to Safehouse and have them try the Ibarra Mocha.
