Well... if you live in the Golden Triangle area, anyway. I've lived here for 3 years and had pretty much given up on finding decent coffee anywhere in the state. After moving here from Houston, home of Catalina and others, things were pretty bleak here. I eventually did find a decent shop in Vicksburg, but that's a few hours' drive for me. So I've been roasting my own with a popcorn popper - which is nice, but I've really missed the experience of going to a good coffee shop.

But a couple of months ago, a new shop opened in downtown Starkville. I wasn't too interested until I heard they serve Intelligentsia. 929 Coffee

The owners are knowledgeable, enthusiastic and native to the area. The baristas are new but well trained and also enthusiastic. The space is huge, the hours are good, there are plans for cuppings in the works... I just can't tell you how happy I am about this.

I've also heard about a new place in Columbus that may serve Counter Culture, but I haven't made it over there yet.
