A fresh batch of coffee spots open around town. Plus, news from an old favorite.
If you’re looking for a new place to sip a cup of joe, look no further than these cozy hangouts—each with its own unique approach to the brewing biz.
Mark Atwood, owner of the new Comet Coffee, measures each ingredient to the gram in his coffees, cappuccinos, macchiatos and custom intelligentsia teas for a perfect custom brew every time. (Don’t miss his heavenly French Tahitian vanilla latte.) meanwhile, pastry chef Stephanie Fischer cranks out fresh, handmade treats like biscotti, cheese scones, blueberry muffins and French eclairs.
Scott Carey of Sump Coffee takes a Zen master’s approach to serving the perfect cup of joe. Lately, he’s been experimenting with oak barrel aging and roasting his own beans, with the mission to develop one coffee to absolute perfection. Carey says by roasting the beans in-house, he takes control of the craft and makes it truly his creation. Look for Sump’s original roast to be ready for tasting in December.
A new coffee bar and Italian doughnut shop, Bomboloni, has opened on the eighth floor of the Four Seasons Hotel, serving imported Lavazza coffee, espresso, cappuccino and an assortment of fruit juices, sodas and other drinks. Bomboloni also features a magnificent spread of treats from the Four Seasons kitchen: freshly made pastries, muffins, Danishes, croissants and bomboloni (italian doughnuts) flavored with cinnamon, bacon and raspberry, to name just a few.
