Ironically, I first encountered Square One coffee a good 2600 miles west of its home in Lancaster, PA, at a cafe in Redlands, CA.

I enjoyed the brew so much that I made a mental note to get out to Square One, and finally, after 3 1/2 years, I had a chance to drive through Lancaster and pop in.

The coffeehouses decor really appealed to me, and with outlets, wifi, and parking that is not that expensive (typically of smaller cities), I would gladly hang out here.

It was the coffee, though, that really blew my socks off--the Chemex-brewed Colombia Aces merited an 8 on my scale, and was the best cup of coffee I'd had since last September!!!
