Does anyone know of any good places to get quality espresso in central Pennsylvania?  I don't know of any coffee houses around as of yet.

Thanks, Brad

Define Central PA? I live in Lancaster County and we always call this area "Central PA". 'Round these parts, Central PA is commonly referred to as York-Harrisburg-Lancaster.

Not too much in the way of quality espresso here. Avoid CocoaPerk in Hershey at all costs.

Hi, I mean like the Johnstown/Altoona area, actually south central PA.  Sorry, my fault.  There is one good coffeehouse in Indiana PA by IUP college, the commonplace coffeehouse with pretty good espresso.  but where I live in Jtown there is nothing.

Thanks,
Brad

Maybe you'll get lucky and get the new D-Donuts equipped with the espresso machines. Blech!!!

Hi - I have an even more intractable problem - I live in Potter County, which is the far NORTH Central PA.  If you think you have problems finding good espresso... :)  I've been preparing my own espresso out of self-defense for years.  If anyone knows of any places north of I-80 that do good espresso, please let me know!

Thanks,
- Andy -
