Coffee

If there's one thing coffee drinkers take seriously, it's their daily (hourly?) cup of joe. So caffeine fiends take note: Your boiling, black brew (some consider it nectar of the gods) can be found outside the coffee house.

Buy It

There must be a correlation between coffee and computers: The number of java-related web sites is astounding. And thanks to e-commerce, beautiful beans can be delivered right to your door. This list of online coffee sellers is but a tiny sampling, but it should get you started.

  • Better Beans
    Join their "coffee of the month" program and sample beans from micro-roasters across the country.
  • Extreme Coffee
    Home of Shock Hyper-Caffeinated Coffee, which contains twice the caffeine as your average joe.
  • Peet's Coffee & Tea
    This Berkeley-based coffee house has been brewing its own java since 1966.
  • Porto Rico Importing Co
    A warehouse-style store in Greenwich Village that's been importing coffee since 1907.




  • Urth Caffe
    Go organic with Urth's selection of coffees and teas. (Online ordering is coming soon.) Other organic coffee sellers include Sacred Grounds and Equal Exchange, a co-op that offers gourmet coffee direct from small-scale farmers in Africa and Latin America.
Brew It

Beans aren't the only coffee-related item you can buy over the Internet...

  • Whole Latte Love
    Find a wide selection of espresso and cappuccino machines for home or business use.
  • Roastery Development Group
    Every piece of coffee-related equipment you could possibly imagine can be found at RDG -- roasters, grinders, brewers, even tiny stuff like cups and utensils.
  • Bunn Beverage Equipment
    For the non-espresso drinkers, Bunn offers a range of brewers, grinders, warmers and filters.
  • Starbucks
    Yes, the mother of all coffee retailers is known for its brews. But Starbucks also sells mugs, machines and goodies like coffee ice cream and candy.
Drink It

Whether it's a hip cafe or a greasy spoon of a diner, javaheads need a Central Perk to call their own. Check out these cool coffee hangouts.

  • Hestia House
    This Santa Barbara cafe is home to Moore Coffee and Tea. The site includes coffee terms, tips and history.
  • El Cafetal Inn
    Imagine sipping coffee at a country inn in Costa Rica. Now imagine that it's located on a coffee plantation surrounded by water and mountains. Can you say "paradise"?
  • The Shopping Place.
    Link to tons of online chocolate shops and coffee houses. (It's recommended by The New York Times.)
Sell It

For people who must be around coffee 24-7, hop on the caffeinated bandwagon and open your very own cafe. But if you'd rather go with a tried-and-true store, franchise opportunities are available.

  • The Coffee Beanery, Ltd
    This chain brews up specialty coffee drinks in malls across America.
  • PJ's Coffee & Tea Company
    This New Orleans-based company has stores throughout Louisiana, Georgia, Florida and North Carolina.
  • Diedrich Coffee
    At the present time, this coffee house chain is looking for big money investors. But the company is keeping a database of individual players for future opportunities.
Read About It

These online magazines contain everything you always wanted to know about the bean but were afraid to ask.
