If post-apocalyptic films and novels have taught us anything, it's this: When civilization goes, we'll be missing small, morale-boosting things just as much (if not more) than our major necessities. With that in mind, you'd be wise to get yourself to one of Caffe Luce's two locations, to taste some of Tucson's finest locally roasted, locally blended java. Luce owner Michael Foster has been in the coffee business since the mid-'90s in Seattle, in the heart of America's artisan coffee movement. If your chief concern is price, Luce's got you covered there, too, and takes pride in offering high-quality brews at a highly competitive cost. Luce's beans are practically worth their weight in gold—something to keep in mind, should coffee become post-apocalyptic Tucson's chief currency.
