Huh. I'm surprised at some of the winners, but I don't want to dis a business by name. I recommend Fat Apple's coffee (beans or to go): strong but not bitter. Way better than those listed. And only $1.60 a cup! Glad Giovanni's made the list.

I disagree. Fat Apples leaves their coffee on the hot plate too long, and unless you get freshly made coffee, it tastes burnt.
