Not counting Starbucks, are there any good coffee shops in Lexington? I'm talking about a place that sells a fantastic, wonderful, over the top cup of really, really great coffee.
I would try Common Grounds off of High Street or Coffee Times Coffee House off of Nicholasville Road. I know what you mean about coffehouses. It is nice to go to a coffee shop that is not a chain. Local coffee houses are so neat and exciting! Some coffee shops are so original and it is a place you can really connect with the local community. Have fun!

The only thing I don't like about Coffee Times is that they close so freakin' early! Love everything else about it though.

I drink my coffee with nothing in it, so to me it is hard to find a good cup of coffee. So far I like Coffee Times. Places like Starbucks (to me) really aren't about coffee. They are more about things you can do to coffee. Those places have to over-roast their coffee so you can have a "Coffee taste" under all the sugar and syrups they add.

Try the Costa Rican, Kenyan AA, & Dudley's Blend.

I'll probably start a sub-thread here, but I hope everybody knows the coffee bean isn't the pit, but rather the flesh of the cherry from a coffee tree.

This is such an excellent point and spot on. I received a Starbucks gift card for Christmas and here it is May and I've only gone once, which just goes to show you that even when it's given away for free, I'm not too impressed.

This is all good info. I'm always the one that doesn't usually like what the masses do. Starbuck's coffee is so strong I can't even kinda like it however my teenager loves all the never can remember her order!! Its a frappe or latte?? I do brew certain flavor coffees like Chocolate Velvet just black looovveee it.

Blue Mountain Coffee downtown has a lounge feel and Jamaican blend coffee. Jenicca's wine bar and coffee downtown is also good. In historic Old Louisville, you will find Old Louisville coffeehouse, which serves Chicago's Intelligentsia coffee quite well. Some great indie shows there too because of its proximity to Spalding and UofL.
I want to go. Call me next time you go and I will go with you.
