The Inquirer’s Food section today is dedicated to the coffee bean. The exhaustive look at coffee in the area features Craig LaBan’s story on the third wave of coffee culture, his search for the finest beans as well as his 30 best. Fellow caffeine addict Steven Rea focuses on the best local roasters. It’s a really well done set of articles and worth perusing over a fine cup of joe.
