Coffee, Etc.
2380 N. Campbell Ave.
6091 N. Oracle Road

READERS' PICK: If you're going to boast the most extensive selection of coffee beans from here to Marana, you'd better not skimp on the teas. Many of them, after all, have more go-juice than the darkest java. So that's just what they did at Coffee, Etc. They have Earl Greys, herbal remedies, fruity blends, spicy blends, all loose-leaf and available by the cup or in bulk, for sipping in house or at home. (If you're dining in, those mild teas are the perfect accompaniment to Coffee Etc.'s totally extreme cheesecake creations.)

READERS' POLL RUNNER-UP: Bentley's House of Coffee & Tea, 1730 E. Speedway Blvd.

CLUE IN: If you've dodged the java rage and still drink leaves soaked in water, we'd be remiss not to recommend Cuppuccinos Coffee House, 3400 E. Speedway Blvd. Options abound: black teas, green teas, herbal teas, even chai teas. And if you like it all that much, you can bag it in a variety of quantities and take it home. But for the in-house sipping pleasure, the accent here is on presentation. Your order will be served steeping in its own petite tea set, complete with pot, sturdy ceramic cup, saucer, tea ball and strainer, with sugarcubes and lemon. Where else can you order tea that you need instructions to drink?
