Good Coffee in Chicagoland

Hey all, I love coffee. Anyone know of a good place to get some great coffee? I was watching a show yesterday and they mentioned a coffee that costs $300 a pound. Evidently, the beans are feed and excreted by some kind of bird before they are processed. My point is, I'm looking for a place that sells the best coffees from around the world. Any suggestions?

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

It's called Kopi Luwak

Kopi Luwak are robusta coffee beans which have been eaten by and passed through the digestive tract of the Common Palm Civet.

Sounds different. I'd try it.

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!

Seriously, the processing of most things you eat that come from animals (or in this case go through) get hit with shit and piss somewhere along the way. Get over it and have a nice cup of coffee

Only, if i drove an SUV, lived in naperville, and called my self a yuppy. But no, no coffee for me.

The food i eat gets rinsed off with water. But drinking the coffee is like drinking the water that was used for the rinsing process.

I've had it, nothing special really. Like a light Sumatra or Papau New Guinea.


WSE, Intelligentsia on Broadway rules, excellent bean roasted locally. There's also one in the South Loop in the Monadack(sp?) building.

star*ucks sucks!

If you can find any shop that makes Lavazza brand espresso in Lavazza espresso machine - let me know. ( I still haven't). I lived in Middle East for 7 years and I learned good coffee. The only espresso served in many middle East countries is Lavazza.

Italian Lavazza is the best pre-roasted, pre-grounded and pre-packaged coffee brand. The only better - is the one you roast and grind yourself or someone, you trust.

I even met the farmer that grew the beans... man I want to go back.

Finally someone who knows coffee! Must be a long lost brother When I was living in Toronto, just down my alley was a espresso bar that used Lavazza and the their machine, best damn espresso outside of Roma, 50 cents Canadian for a single, 75 cents if you sat down, just like in Roma

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.
