La Cosecha Roasters (7360 Manchester Road, Maplewood; 314-991-0049)
zmanator: La Cosecha is the most underrated coffee shop in St. Louis. They fresh roast on site, so you know your coffee is fresh. They source their beans from exotic locales around the globe and turn it into something amazing. My favorite is their Papua New Guinea (PNG). Agree with the op "Awesome stuff!"

I have been known to stop by when I needed cheering up more than perking up. And he trains disabled workers to enter the food service industry. What more could we ask from a local shop. Did I mention his charitable donations?
