I usually hit the indie coffee shops first thing in the morning, BEFORE hitting a bunch of Starbucks, but today that didn't work out, and I'd already had six Starbucks samples by 5 PM.

I almost passed on James Coffee, but I'm glad I didn't because this is some pretty good joe. Moreover, by chatting with the baristas I learned that Bird Rock, my San Diego favourite, has a new location, just two blocks away, which I'll hit tomorrow morning.

Anyway, though James isn't quite as good as Bird Rock, this space is killer, and I'm definitely coming back here when I get a chance.
