Fully Caffeinated: A Citywide Map of Third Wave Coffee

Whether your loyalty lies with Blue Bottle or you're more of a Four Barrel fanatic, more than 40 cafes in town now provide a Third Wave fix (post-WWII rise of instant coffee=first wave, Starbucks and Peet’s=second wave, obsessive, bean-sourcing micro-roasters like Blue Bottle and Four Barrel=third wave). Here's where to find the Third Wave variety across the city.
