Where to find Dayton's best Joe
Dayton Business Journal - February 8, 2008 - Caleb

Ahh. The relaxing intensity of a
hot cup of coffee. For those who start each day with a
cup, they understand the joys that can come from a good
steaming mug o' joe. For those who don't drink coffee,
they probably just roll their eyes at those who do.
But one thing is clear, the
coffee market is percolating and people have a growing
number of options to grab a cup. But where can one go to
get the best cup of coffee in the Dayton area?
The Dayton Business Journal
polled online readers (dayton.bizjournals.com)
in January and what followed was a frantic back and
forth race that tallied more votes than any recent poll.
In the end, local player Winans
Chocolates and Coffees received the blue ribbon,
collecting 45 percent of the votes. Winans, based in
Piqua, has five area locations including a new store in
the Dayton mall. But what is it about Winans coffee that
people like? Many cited how the coffee is roasted
locally and features a smooth taste.
