Nectar of the Gods

The Sonoran Coffee shop at Ray and Alma School in Chandler pours the nectar of the gods. When your only options are vending machine coffee or Starbucks for long periods of time, you forget how horrible either of those taste.

I stopped in Sonoran Coffee this morning after dropping my car off for service, though, and my tongue was happy. Not only did they have a variety of tasty-looking baked goods, but the cafe mocha I had was delicious. None of the bitter aftertaste of Starbucks, and more flavorful to boot.

It was also decidedly less dull and corporate, what with the bulletin board full of business cards, and the live music every night, and selling a local artist's photos from the walls... Oh, right, and the fact actual sunlight is allowed to enter the building! I don't know what it is with Starbucks and their obsession with "dark cramped hole." Maybe they're trying to make every city feel like Seattle to their baristas.

I'll most certainly be going back for another cup sometime. Good stuff, and you've got to support your good local businesses.
