Best Coffee Orange County 2009 - Lavazza at Finbars Italian Kitchen

Readers' Choice: Starbucks
You might not think of Finbars Italian Kitchen as a great place to get a cup of coffee (more like a great place for an Italian dinner), but the brand they brew up is one of the finer joes around. It's called Lavazza, and it's been delighting coffee-lovers for more than a century with its deep, rich taste. While Lavazza is huge in Italy, don't expect to find it many places or order it yourself from the company—you've practically got to own a restaurant . . . and speak Italian.
