Let's face it: coffee is important every morning. But it's even more important on the morning of... the Best Day of Your Life! We're putting together the agenda for how best to spend the longest day of the year, June 21st, but we need your help completing our itinerary, this time by having you vote on your favorite coffee spot in San Diego. Take a look at the options below, vote in the comments at the bottom of the page, and get ready to have a truly superlative time. Put "A" in the comments to vote for Elixir Espresso Bar: Like the magically medicinal potions from which it takes its name, Elixir will have you under a caffeine-induced spell with their finely pulled espresso shots and impressive latte art. Plus, they have crepes! Put "B" in the comments to vote for Bird Rock Coffee Roasters: There’s a reason they were named Roaster of the Year in 2012 by Roast Magazine: Bird Rock knows a thing or two about coffee. They’re all about cultivating relationships with farmers and responsibly sourcing beans from all over the world, then roasting them on site to bring San Diegans a top-tier caffeine fix. Put "C" in the comments to vote for Cafe Moto In addition to a test kitchen where they have tastings to educate their customers, they carry a variety of beans from all over the world that are roasted on site. Plus, you can buy your own coffee-making supplies and gadgets here to try your hand as a home barista. But better to leave it to the professionals. Put "D" in the comments to vote for Dark Horse Coffee Roasters: You won’t get a latte here, but you will get one hell of a cup o' joe. These guys don’t mess around with espresso and other caffeinated concoctions; Dark Horse is all about coffee, roasting small-batch, handcrafted coffees on-site and brewing them French press-, pour over- and cold brew-styles. Now it's voting time! Remember to make your pick in the comments with either an A, B, C, or D. Democracy!
