I grew up in Slippery Rock, PA.

Went to middle school, high school there and came to UM for school.

For the life of me I couldn't understand this fascination with Slippery Rock until I had a meeting with my advisor who kind of went through the history that UM has with Slippery Rock.

When I tell my friends back in town this, they're all like whaaat

Cause all they care about there is Steelers

As somone very interested in coffee, I appreciate Ann Arbor's coffee scene.

Ann Arbor's probably Michigan's place to be for quality coffee.

Maybe even in the Midwest, excluding Chicago, home of Intelligentsia the face company of the third wave coffee movement.

In regards to shops and tasting excellent coffee, these are my recommendations in order of excellence (my opinion) 

1. Espresso Bar in Kerrytown: opened in the spring, they serve excellent single origin espresso roasted by a Detroit roaster, Anthology coffee. Sandy, the co-owner is in my recommendation the top barista in Ann Arbor. He used to work at Coment coffee. They only serve espresso/espresso based drinks though.

2. Lab at Liberty St.: They serve Intelligentsia coffees as their main espresso, sometimes rotating different blends/single origins. Their pour overs are quite excellent also if you pick the right ones. My go to place for kind of close to campus-ish location.

3. Comet coffee: Probably the first of the third wave coffee shop that appeared in Ann Arbor around 2008(?). Had my first true "espresso" there pulled by the owner a few years ago and can not forget that experience. A very cute shop with very hipster baristas haha.

4. Ugly Mug: This is actually located in Ypsilanti but a quick 15 minutes drive from Ann Arbor. As far as I know they were the premiere third wave coffee shop of Michigan before the arrival of the Ann Arbor shops and Mad Cap of Grand Rapids, MI. Very funky interior but serve excellent coffee 

If you are more into getting loca roasted coffee beans as gifts, I would recommend Zingerman's. Their "#1 espresso blend" is quite good, not as good as the premiere artisan coffee roasters of the country maybe. Other choices include Mighty Good Coffee and also Roos Roast but was not impressed with either.

07/27/2012 - 12:10pm I've been wondering about his twosie for a while

I drive by to work on State St. every morning and more than a few times Taylor's passed me on a moped. 

Seriously looks like he's riding a tricycle on the road
