Best Baristas

From espresso making to latte art, it takes more skill than meets the eye to brew a good cup of coffee. When it comes to the Chippewa Valley’s best baristas, SHIFT Cyclery & Coffee Bar (615 Graham Ave., Eau Claire) roasted the competition. Not only do they make a solid cup of Joe, but they also create an inviting atmosphere that feels like home. Cabin Coffee Co. (2922 Meadowlark Lane, Altoona) perks up at second; if you haven’t been, stop procaffeinating! Next come the baristas at ECDC (205 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire). Head downtown for one of their signature drinks. –Natalie Rosenkranz
