Cool Thanks. I just saw Moonbeans on the Delocator. Nice to know that its worth looking into. And it's right near the airport so it looks like I should be able to hit it coming in or out at the very least. And the other place sounds promising too if I have the time. I'll be sure to report back later in April.

Hey all, I'm in Austin, TX for the summer (my folks live here, I go to school in Tampa) and would love to get plugged in with the community a bit here. I'm getting set to buy my first "real" machine (LeLit PL041) as soon as I make enough cash, but I was wondering if there was somewhere I could get some advice or tips.
I'm actually not far from Cuvee and Java Dive, but I haven't made it over yet since my pay from my summer job hasn't really kicked in yet. I'm actually planning on hitting up Cuvee tomorrow morning for a coffee and some beans since me and the Allegro Bel Canto roast I picked up at Whole Foods never really hit it off that well - too bright and fruity for me (my first real beans where Intelligentsia, two or three blends ago (before the Rwanda beans popped in) and I got a bit spoiled for deep chocolatieness, even with my craptastic machine)
Anyways, it's good to be here, and I hope I get to meet some of you before I head back to school.
