Does anyone know where one may get a fine cup of espresso in the south ... in the region between New Orleans and Mobile?

I am looking for a point of reference for what good espresso is. Eddie On 8/24/06, Brett Mason wrote: <Snip>
This is a multi-part message in MIME format. Eddie… I don’t think you could have picked a more espresso desolate region. = Maybe there’s a hidden Pearl(MS)… possibly a prolific puller in = Pascagoula? Grab a café au lait in a quality joint and have a small adventure. = Best of luck. Let us know what you find.

Those are good! ;-) I really haven't cared for any of the New Orleans coffees that I have taste= d and chicory really isn't my thing. A friend and co-worker of mine, knowing how much I love the elixir, suggested a local coffee for me to try because he loved it so much. I tried and tried, but I just hated to tell him that = I just could not get it to produce any flavor at all. I don't believe that I have ever had a good espresso, so that is why I am trying to find a way to taste a truly good shot as a point of reference. Before I invest in the equipment for such at home, it would be nice to know what I am shooting for. I have always enjoyed things with intense flavor, but the only point of reference I have currently is *$ and the last time I got one there it made the inside of my car stink! It was abominable. I have "heard" miKe talk about Americanos, so I tried one of them, of the same vintage, and it almos= t made me cuss. If anyone comes up with any suggestions, even within a few hours of the area, I would really appreciate the recommendation. I can make it a weeken= d road trip on my motorcycle.

It seems like there are a few places in Gulf Shores but I can't recall any names right now- I'll ask some family who frequent Gulf Shores/Orange Beach. If your around Birmingham any during the trip visit OHenry's in Homewood - it's pretty good. Gregg T Former Alabama Resident On 8/24/06, Eddie Dove wrote: <Snip>
Gregg, I was in Birmingham recently ... I will note that for future reference. My wife likes going to Gulf Shores periodically, so I would love to know about any references in that area. I could juice up all day while her, her mother and sisters go shopping. :-) From where do you hail now? Eddie On 8/27/06, Gregg Talton wrote: <Snip>
