Best Coffee Shops in Chicago?

I've lived in Chicago for 6 years now, so I've had my fair sampling of coffee shops in the city, but I know there are more out there. Anyone have any suggestions?

Currently I most frequently visit Intelligentsia because it is right down the street from where I live, and it is always a delight. I've also started visiting a cafe called My Soul Cafe in the South Shore neighborhood because a friend of mine works there. They have excellent blue mountain coffee, but it's a bit of a hike down there. I've bought there stuff online a few times though just to have some blue mountain coffee on hand at my apartment ( .....if you're interested :))

Anyway, I'm looking for a new cozy spot to get a great cup of coffee. Intelligentsia has become too crowded, and My Soul Cafe is too far away. I know there are plenty of spots in this city, so let me hear some suggestions please!

I will be visiting Chicago this August. Any coffee shops you can recommend for me to try out. I would bring my aeropress with me but would still love to try out recommended coffee shops.
