Everyone knows Richmond has great coffee. You can’t throw a mug in this city without hitting a local java spot. But we want to know — what’s the best local coffee roaster?

Obviously there will be some overlap on this list. Some shops, like Blanchard’s, are known just as much for their beans as they are for their brews. Others, like Reviresco, made their name as roasters and only recently opened brick-and-mortar cafes.

When you’re running low on coffee beans, where do you go for a freshly-roasted refill? Let us know.
