Octane on the Westside has been around so long it basically introduced Atlanta to the idea of obsessing over coffee. The French presses and espresso drinks have been helping people reach their goal of dropping ten buzz words a minute while in a meeting where half the people are on computer screens since 2003. It’s best as a quick stop to grab a drink when you’re in the area, though there are a few tables and bar seats in the comfortable space if you want to perch with some work during the week.
