Independent coffee near Georgia Tech Conference Center?

Are there any decent independent coffee shops anywhere near the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center?

I'll in town for a conference and would really like to have a good espresso-based coffee before my sessions begin each day.

Been to Octane a few times. Some of the best independent coffee in ATL. Maybe the best.

Octane is not really that close to the GT Conference Center (it's on the other side of campus, a couple of miles from the GTCC), but it would be a good choice if you have access to a car. The only coffee shop within walking distance to the GTCC is a Starbuck's on 5th St in Tech Square. I don't know how you feel about their coffee, but that would be the most convenient option in the immediate area.

Hard to imagine it having a good espresso-based coffee selection

Thanks for the input! It seems there are several Octane's around. The Pocketbar by Octane at Bank of America Plaza seems just a 10 minute walk from the Renaissance Midtown where I'll be staying and not far from the Conference Centre - perfect!

The banana pudding and coconut pie sound enticing enough to try other locations as well ;)

Thanks, again - good to know I'll be able try "one of the 100 best places to drink in the South".
