Topic: St. Louis (7 msgs / 225 lines)
1) From: Tim TenClay
Good morning...
I'm in St. Louis until the 1st of January for a conference with my college
students staying at the Sheraten City Center near the America's Center.
Anyone have any suggestions for good coffee within walking distance?
Anything you can suggest would be greatly appreciated!
Grace and Peace,
  `tim

You are pretty much bumming sadly.  The truly good coffee is further out in
the city/country.
 
I think your best bet is Breve Espresso Company at 417N. 10th Street
314.231.5282.
 
Other good-excellent choices are just not within walking distance of
America's Center as our downtown area is just recently on the rise.

I've not been in St Louis for a while.  The only place that served 
decent stuff on the MO side was Kaldi's on DeMun, west city.  If you 
stray to the IL side, be sure and check for one there.  Let me know, off 
list, if you want to know.  He's a competitor to Tom, so I won't say the 
name here.
Sorry nothing closer, but I stayed out of downtown while living there.

There are other good choices if you stray from downtown.
The best in the city is Picasso's but that's in St. Charles/St. Charles
county.
Northwest Coffee, Shaw Coffee Ltd, and the previously mentioned Kaldi's are
all good choices but are either a) further out into the city or b)into the
county for Kaldi's.
Two I'd forgotten about as I've not checked them out are:
Espresso Mod - 210 N. 9th St 314.436.3240 (so that's walking distance)
Park Avenue Coffee - 1919 Park Ave. 314.621.4020 (not quite walking
distance)
Let me/us know how those are if you happen to make it there as I'm curious.
St. Louis has pretty shoddy taste in coffee, so it's hard to weed out the
glowing reviews from the actually good pulls.  I'm a cappuccino man as well,
so that's my test of the baristas skill.  You get a lot of the cappuccino on
the verge of latte happening in the Lou.

Even though I live in St. Louis County, I can't help much either.  I rarely
go downtown.  I bought fresh roasted beans from Starr's for years until I
started roasting but that is really a gourmet market- wine shop.  Rick
Melton, the owner of Northwest Coffee, has pulled a wonderful shot of
espresso for me but he is in the Central West End and I have walked into his
store in Clayton before and the shot pulled by one of his employees was
awful.  Hope you enjoy your stay in St. Louis anyway.

areat sound engineer, but the java wasn't very good, even the drip stuff.

You have to go to the CWE Northwest location for the truly good shot.  =
Plus
you'll get to see their Probat in action on Monday's or Thursdays as =
it's
just sitting in the café and those are the days they roast.
Shaw Coffee also has their Probat sitting out in the Café but I've no =
idea
when they roast.
I still say the best shot in St. Louis is Picasso's on main street in =
St.
Charles, however.
