Coffee in Kentuckiana

Name: Sunergos Coffee Location: 2122 South Preston Street, Louisville, KY Roasters: Sunergos Coffee Rating: 3+

Peregrine Espresso for a Seeking Man

Name: Peregrine Espresso Location: 660 Pennsylvania Avenue SE, Washington, D.C. Roasters: Counter Culture Coffee Rating: 3+

Taste Coffee House

Name: Taste Coffee House Location: 311 Walnut Street, Newtonville, MA Roasters: Terroir and various guest coffees Rating: 3+
