Zingerman's Coffee Company. http://www.zingermanscoffee.com/ If you go the second Saturday of the month at 11:00AM you can take a tour of the roaster and have a sample. Their guys (and gals) are pretty good baristas and the owners run brewing and espresso classes.
Yet another said, "Don't Forget Roos Roast: http://roosroast.com/ " All he uses is an espresso machine in the shop, and I'm told he's famous for the triple-long. Amusing blend names, very whimsical.

I will add a couple more.
Lab in Ann Arbor is decent. They have a good product, but I don't feel like there is consistent training amongst their staff. http://www.labannarbor.com/
Also, try the (espresso) bar. It's in the Braun Court near Zingerman's Deli. It's a quaint little spot ran out of a home by a couple of really nice young people. They give you a great product and excellent service. http://www.facebook.com/TheEspressoBar?fref=ts
