Albuquerque coffee & custard: Excellent coffee can be found just south of Nob Hill at Michael Thomas Coffee, who roasts beans on the premises from all over the world. Have a cup and take some beans to go, then venture back toward the University of New Mexico's (UNM) campus for frozen custard straight out of the Midwest. Lighter than ice-cream, eggier than gelato, frozen custard is just right for the summer heat.
