Killer cup of coffee

Posted August 3, 2010 11:44 a.m. EDT

I’m craving a good cup of coffee this week. Where should I go? What kind should I make at home?

Most people who get up in the middle of the night to go to work know a thing or two about good coffee. I like a good cup. I’ve been attached to the regular brew at Cup-A-Joe next to WRAL for about a year now. But I’m also attached to their delicious Red Eggs & Ham recipe. My trainer Tara Wind said I needed to take a break from the eggs burrito for awhile. So, I’m staying away from Cup-a-Joe for awhile and bringing in sandwiches from home. We have “machine coffee” here at the station and quite frankly I’m not too fond of it.

I really like Java Jive in Cary. My wife Cindy brought home some Peets Coffee from Harris-Teeter the other day and it was outstanding.  Have you ever tried Larry's Beans?  Great coffee!

Where do you go for a killer cup of java?
