I get my coffee at a Royal Farms gas station every morning so I can mix the different coffees together. Has anyone heard about those "Bikini Baristas" in the news? Sounds like a combination of Hooters and Starbucks.

two things:

-Fresh Market in Hilltop always has free coffee for customers to sample. It's usually good stuff.

-Coffease isn't that bad. It seems like everyone ignores it. The Great Neck one is reportedly the busiest location and I would guess the quality is better there. I believe the Little Neck location is the 2nd most popular one.

At home...millstone from wal-mart, hampton roads does have some of the best wal-marts which therefore leads to easy access to some good millstone coffee.

Though if out and about and if I had a choice dunkin donuts takes it.

I buy the 7-11 blend for home. Tastes better brewing in my kitchen than at the store!

Go to Bean There in Chesapeake...if you are near Greenbrier mall it is just across Greenbrier Pkwy on Eden Way, turn into Towne Place at Greenbrier. By far the best coffee/lattes in Hampton Roads...trust me i've been to them all! Locally owned, but with all the qualities you want in a coffeehouse...artwork, comfy seats, free wi-fi, and awesome baristas. Check it out...[url=http://www.beantherecafe.com]Bean There Cafe Home[/url]

There is a great locally owned coffee house in Churchland. JoJacks has great food, wonderful coffees, and nice staff. Give it a try.

I found a place in Norfolk, I think it's Norfolk Coffee and Tea on 18th street. They actually roast the beans right there. No computers, or fancy equipment, just an old roaster from the early 1900's. Smells soooo good in there! Coffee was as fresh as it gets. As I live in Pungo, it's quite a hike to Norfolk. I go to Starbucks to buy beans, grind them at home, put 'em in a french press and enjoy!

I am from California where the best cappucinos come from Peets Coffee. The coffee is rich in flavor with a dense head of foam. It makes Starbucks seem weak. The closest I can get to it is to add an extra shot to my Starbucks. There aren't any Peets located here but I am interested in finding a something like it. Any suggestions?

Thanks, I checked that out...I was hoping for a coffee house, someplace to buy a fresh cup and enjoy the scenery.
