BUSINESS CONFIDENTIAL: ‘Damsel in Defense’ teaches women to take back the night



As anyone who gets up at Dark O'Clock can attest, coffee is an essential nutrient of breakfast. Often, it IS breakfast.

As a connoisseur of espresso, coffee, tea, energy drinks, C-Monster, and even these new-fangled Aero-Shot Energy supplements, I can tell you that a strong cup of joe is oftentimes the only thing that makes it possible to think or make facial expressions in the A.M.

So here's my challenge: Find me the best cup of coffee or espresso in the city of Jacksonville.

Said beverage has to be tasty, potent (lots of caffeine), and effective in waking my sleepy self up after I drop my son off at high school.

I'm taking emailed suggestions of where to go for the best cup of Joe.  

If you email me at btinsley@jacksonvilleprogress.com, I will put your suggestion on a tallied list. In the subsequent couple of weeks I will travel around town, sampling one cup  every day.

Once I have a baseline for the most quality caffeinated drink (either coffee or espresso-related) I will proclaim a winner in this particular column.

So. If you're looking to be named Business Confidential's "Best Cup Of Coffee In Town" (I reserve the right to shorten or change this title if it seems too lame), please contact me at your earliest convenience.  

Doesn't matter if you are a convenience store, a donut store, a coffee store, or whatever. If you sell Joe to customers, I want to hear from you.
