Coffee has certainly undergone a transformation in the past few years. It has morphed from a simple beverage that you can consume plain, or with cream and/or sugar, to a versatile drink that can be hot, iced, frozen, and enhanced with a vast array of tasty options that make it seem more like a dessert.
For our cover story, we decided to focus on a few places that roast their own beans, and have shops that prepare a variety of coffee drinks. Offering everything from single-source beans to blends, and from lattes to macchiatos, these five shops visited by Sarah Burton are heavenly retreats for all coffee aficionados. Read all about them beginning on page 96.
Each November we publish the Charity Register, which provides us with the opportunity to list the recipients of the National Philanthropy Day Awards, given out by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Southern Arizona Chapter.

Executive Editor Anne Kellogg spoke with local experts, including a doctor who has epilepsy herself, to learn what everyone needs to know about seizures. Turn to page 90 for the story.
