Panther Coffee: Miami, Fla.
Panther Coffee in Miami’s hip Wynwood neighborhood is only a quick 90-minute flight from Guatemala City. The easy access to Latin America makes developing direct-trade relationships with farms easier, and also means a diverse clientele of international coffee lovers, some who hail from the very same towns that grow Panther's coffees. Inside the shop, along with the hum of a vintage pre-World War II Probat coffee roaster, you can hear so many languages that it's easy to forget you're only a few minutes from Miami Beach.

Stumptown Coffee Roasters: Portland, Oregon
Aside from perhaps Seattle, there's no city in the country with a greater wealth of coffee than Portland. Shops like Barista stand out as examples of perfectly executed neighborhood cafes, and the coffees of boutique roasters like Heart and Coava are carried in discerning shops nationwide, which speaks to their quality. But there's one company whose coffee footprint overshadows them all. It's Stumptown, a roasting operation and chain of cafes that gambled on opening in an old burned-down hair salon back in 1999, only to become one of the most-ubiquitous coffee brands in the country. Fittingly, their most-popular coffee remains the Hair Bender Espresso, named in honor of the previous tenants.

Spyhouse: Minneapolis, Minn.
In the past 16 years, Spyhouse has become a Minneapolis institution. Each of its four cafes spread throughout the city has its own personality, but the one not to miss is Spyhouse Central. Built into the 100-year-old former home of a mattress company, it's an homage to the early 1900s, with reclaimed wood from Central Wisconsin and a selection of prime antiques from the owner's personal collection. If your budget allows, spring for one of their Imperial Reserve coffees like their current Honduran bean, which was crowned the very best of that country's crop. Or, if added flavors appeal to you, try the Spygirl, which features housemade lavender syrup and honey harvested from hives located atop neighboring buildings.
