We don't have much choice of chains around here. A bunch of Starbux, but I'd get McDonalds coffee before theirs. I don't go for any of the fancy drinks - just coffee in a cup. Starbux usually only serves Pikes Place after lunchtime, and that stuff is vile. You can get a pour over, but that's often lukewarm by the time you get it. Not worth it for me. +1 on finding a local roaster who knows what they're doing (not all do). They will often have more varieties to choose from, which lets you dial in what tastes best to you. The closer you are to the roasting time, the better the coffee you'll make with the beans.
