Condesa Coffee (multiple locations, condesacoffee.com). Condesa, whose coffeehouse in the Old Fourth Ward is 5 years old, launched a weekday-only outpost downtown earlier this year. From drip to pour-over to espresso made using a coveted La Marzocco espresso machine, Condesa's newest location has you covered when you're walking down Auburn Avenue in desperate need of a caffeine jolt.
Huge Cafe (1375 Peachtree St. N.E., Atlanta. hugecafe.com). Its doors open less than two months, Huge has entered the progressive coffee movement with a Kyoto drip coffee system that puts out smooth, low-acid cold-brew coffee made with beans from new Atlanta roaster Brash and a Hario V60 to please the pour-over crowd. In the mood for sweet? Order Coffee and Cigarettes, an affogato that combines espresso with Morelli's tobacco ice cream and smoked, crumbled Oreos.
Kaldi's Coffee (605 Asbury Circle, Atlanta. kaldiscoffee.com). When you find yourself on Emory University's campus, head to Dobbs University Center for a cup of coffee at newly opened Kaldi's. This location is the first outside Missouri for the St. Louis-based roaster and coffee shop, which has built a reputation for sustainable business practices that span far beyond sourcing beans and has a solid barista training program that ensures you'll get a great cup of coffee no matter who brews it.
