I have a friend who lives on Longboat Key. I had an espresso at a small shop on Saint Amarands Circle. (probably spelled it wrong). As I remember he also makes gelato. I know the shop is on the circle, just don't know where exactly.

A new coffee shop has opened up on N.Tamiami Trail across from Ringling School of Art & Design. I am one of the Baristas. My co-workers are true coffee snobs. You have a choice to kind of Espresso. The default espresso is Avier...Anyone interested in an espresso taste test email me. Eric

There is a shop in St. Armand's Circle opening up soon called Perq Coffee Bar. They have a Slayer and a Faema lever machine, and will be pulling shots from places like Coava (confirmed) and possibly Heart and a few others.
I don't know of any other good shops in Sarasota, however, if you would like to make the drive up to Tampa, I work part-time in a shop/roastery called Buddy Brew Coffee. There's Axum Coffee in Winter Garden, Barnies Coffee Kitchen in Orlando, Panther in Miami, and Volta in Gainesville. Unfortunately Florida is a bit of a coffee wasteland.

Perq is open in the Hillview area. Google it and you'll find the address. I have not yet been there, but it was highly recommended by a neighbor of ours who is somewhat of a coffee geek himself. Next time we're in SRQ, I plan on checking them out. My neighbor, who travels the country each week for his job (in a similar industry), stated it was one of the best coffee shops he had been to.
