Howdy,

I've been trying to google coffee shops in calgary, under various terminology, and have come across coffeegeek.com referenced alot, but also alot of insurance agencies that I do not need...

I'm looking for, A coffee shop, that's somewhat decent brewing capabilities

- 24/7
- In Calgary, Alberta
- Has wifi (slow or not, it's still wifi)
- Power plug's (ie laptop, or ipad charger point of pluging)
- Decent chairs? (Optional, but wouldn't mind).
- Are there any with couches/etc?

Just curious if anyone here is fairly familiar or remotely familiar with a few that may be in and around calgary.

Thanks!

Well, it would be hard to get better coffee in Calgary than here, I imagine. However, I don't think the cafe meets all of your requirements. Sorry I can't be of more help!

That looks fantastic, however one criteria im looking for at the least, is a 24/7 edition that i can just go whenever, even if its a bad cup o joe.

I chew coffee beans with my teeth while gargling with 195 F water to enjoy coffee. What is this "coffee brewing" device you speak of?

Not from the area, so only general advice...

Go to the really good places when you can (when they're open), and head for the not-so-splendid places when the others are closed.

Otherwise, if I was looking for temporary office space, I'd head to a copy shop, not a coffee shop.

I seriously doubt you're going to find good coffee at 3am unless you brew it at home (or break into some unsuspecting Calgary CoffeeGeek's house... not that I'm recommending that route).  There are plenty of good coffee shops in Calgary during regular business hours, though.

 
...and on that note, I need a coffee.

Just trying to find a late night shop to chill at, especially if like some guys, as night owls, might need a place to escape which doesnt involve defaming ourselves to our lady friends. :)

I'll be blunt: That sort of thing doesn't exist much of anywhere in the world, let alone in Calgary.

Most coffee shops have a hard enough time attracting quality staff during regular business hours. Forget about getting a quality barista pulling a graveyard shift.

I'll sell you a grinder and a good home brewing setup though if you want. So will Phil & Sebastian or Fratello.
