Utah is not exactly a hotbed of coffee drinkers and coffee lovers.. In fact with the LDS faith being predominant most coffee produced is downright dreadful.
A couple of exceptions – Coffee Garden at 9th and 9th in Salt Lake is consistently good; as is Juice n Java in Provo.
Starbucks is a reliable standard too; when we moved here four years ago there were three stores. Now there are dozens. We stopped by our newest local store tonight – on Highland Drive at about 7800 South.
