Topic: No good coffee in North Carolina? (4 msgs / 86 lines)
1) From: Captain CowPie
Of course there is, but I just didn't get a chance to sample any!
I spent 10 days in NC, from Raleigh-Durham to Charlotte to Asheville. And I=
 only had time to try four coffee houses, but none were very good. I had do=
ne a little research and had some great recommendations from those on the l=
ist, but since it was a holiday weekend and we were quite busy, I never got=
 to the places I wanted. Many were closed on the days I tried.
Oh well, I guess I will have to take another trip soon to get to the ones p=
eople recommended to me.

I'm headed up tomorrow  - couldn't remember the name of the place I
stopped before but it's on WT Harris near University.  My wife thinks
it was Lava Java.  Nonetheless, they had a roaster in the window and
bags of greens everywhere.  Their main concern seemed to be the
restaurant portion of the business.  I'm taking my homeroast setup -
of course I'm MOVING to Charlotte tomorrow!  There is a small coffee
shop in the town we're moving to - but again, I can't recall the name
of the shop but it's in downtown Belmont.... just three miles farther
and I'll brew a good cup of homwroast so I don't think I'll be
stopping.

Welcome to town Gregg. Good coffee is hard to come by in the Charlotte area=
. 
I'm still searching, there are a few good roasters in town. Unfortunately=
 
it's hard to find Establishment that is really serious about their coffee=
 
and is willing to train their Batista's. 
Good thing your a home roaster.

The Captain's Coffee is in Kernersville (Where's Kernersville?) Denny
sells the green raw materials, like SM. He'd probably share a little
time and a sip or two with you.
My little brother is in Clayton, between R+D.
