I no longer live in Boone, but my dad still does. On visits to Boone I always look forward to stopping in to High Grounds. The baristas are always kind and on their game and the coffee (no matter what I get) is always perfect!

Freshly ground coffee! Venti Vanilla latte was superb. (I got only 3 pumps of vanilla) Better than Starbucks caramel macchiato. I highly recommend this for your caffeine delight while in Boone.

So it's not in the middle of downtown, but it is worth the couple extra miles. Great selection of beans. Only a couple of drip selections (which is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5).
