Whether you’re looking for the perfect latte, a great office away from the office with free Wi-Fi, a tasty lunch sandwich or a super-chill place to grab a beer after work, OCTANE will outdo your coffeehouse expectations. It’s rare for a place to be so hip and so comfortable. We love the industrial vibe, the cool but not too cool staff, the locally produced art on the walls, the pastries and cookies from Alon’s and, of course, well-crafted coffee drinks and high-quality teas.

Aurora Coffee
Most coffeehouse art makes us cringe, but AURORA-LITTLE FIVE POINTS — the happening java joint sharing a Moreland Avenue strip with Criminal Records and Junkman’s Daughter — is actually worth traveling to for art, latte or no latte.

It’s a rare coffeehouse in Atlanta that serves an A-plus cup of java and features ambiance that wasn’t ordered from a corporate headquarters. But JOE’S EAST ATLANTA COFFEE SHOP succeeds at both. A truly diverse crowd displays itself in the retro, comfy furnishings. The baristas are well trained. The Wi-Fi is free and you don’t have to engage in genteel battle for an electrical outlet: There are plenty. You can hear live music now and then. You can buy a book for a buck. And, hey, it’s in funkadelic East Atlanta.

Let's get our definition straight. "Best Coffeehouse" does not mean "best coffee." That award should go to Aurora. But if we want a place to hang out, cruise the Internet for free on our laptops, meet friends and cultivate that hip vibe so essential to offsetting the angst of being, in reality, a big nobody, we go to OCTANE. Shade-grown, organic and free-trade coffees are featured here. Pastries and sandwiches are trucked-in and better than you get at the corporate chains.

JAVA MONKEY is more than just a comfy place to relax with a late-night cup o' joe. Aside from the usual singer/songwriter suspects, the arty yet unpretentious venue also features national touring performers, jazz and blues acts and freeform improv. Weekly spoken-word performances hosted by Kodac Harrison showcase an array of beat poets, artists and, on occasion, even madmen. And established musicians frequently choose the Monkey's intimate confines to test new material with little or no advance warning. "425 Church St., Decatur. 404-378-5002." less...

A place can have all the comfy sofas in the world, but if its coffee reeks, it can't be Best Coffeehouse. AURORA, though not highest scorer on atmosphere, keeps our bean dreams alive with fabulous coffee that is rich and well-roasted, not scorched or acidic. Proof of its goodness? Aurora recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary, which, in Atlanta shop years is like 100. The barristas know their stuff and their stuff is damn good. "468 Moreland Ave. 404-523-6856; 992 N.

699 Ponce de Leon Ave., Suite 1 404-872-4482 http://www.innovoxlounge.com The "connectivity lounge takes up the basement of Ford Factory Square, and proves the ideal underground dwelling place. The spacious but intimate locale proves suitable for catching up with old friends or scrawling an epic manifesto, for playing classic board games or losing yourself in the World Wide Web. Innovox serves Batdorf and Bronson drip coffee and espresso, which comes de- or hyper-caffeinated. Stop by for a cup of regular coffee if you're on the go, a shot of espresso if you're "really" on the go or a serving of the "Liquid Crack house blend if you're on the go at the speed of light. Other coffee options include cappuccino, cafe latte, cafe mocha, cafe Americano, macchiato and a bevy of frozen concoctions. In the milk department, go for 2 percent, Lactaid, soy, rice or non-fat milk. Round out the coffee scene with tea, bagels, muffins, sweets, wraps, chips and hummus. Our barista assured us "If it has coffee in it, we can make it. less...

992 N. Highland Ave. 404-607-1300 and other locations http://www.auroracoffee.com With corporate competition creeping up on every corner, it's great to know you can still get a convenient mom-and-pop cup of Joe. Aurora prides itself on individual batch roasts that bring out the natural flavors of the beans. Go 'round the world with Aurora's vast selection - your choice of Costa Rican, Ethiopian Harrar, Sumatra or French coffees, to name just a few. That's not including blends and organic options. "I've had coffee and espresso drinks in every fucking state and in parts of Europe and there's nothing that tastes like it or gives me quite the same caffeine high. It sends you into a very pleasant orbit. I also like Aurora because I like hanging out with disenfranchised homeless people, says one reader. Best of all, you don't have to know how to pronounce "grande". less...

Caribou
A little of the great white North right at home. With its woody cabin-like feel, its coffee coolers, carrot cake and cappuccinos, Caribou is a fine place to seek out both caffeine and conversation.

We loathe those coffee-house interiors that look like they were designed by an over-caffeinated Martha Stewart. Aurora, which also has locations in Virginia-Highland and on Piedmont at Monroe, is slightly seedy and steely, and nobody's coffee comes close if you like dark roasts. Truly, our mornings sucked until we discovered Aurora's La Minita beans for home brewing. Now we greet every day with a big smile! less...
