Hi, I'm going to Boston next week and was wondering if there is anyplace worth visiting for an espresso. I'll be staying at the Hyatt Regency at Chauncy St. thanks, French Do You Yahoo!? Tired of spam? Yahoo! Mail has the best spam protection around http://mail.yahoo.com
<Snip> I am unaware of anyplace worth going out of your way to visit.
Some folks on coffeegeek seem to have some suggestions:http://www.coffeegeek.com/forums/worldregional/useast/152721?Page=1On 8/4/06, David B. Westebbe wrote: <Snip> -- "There is nothing new under the sun but there are lots of old things we don't know." -- Ambrose Bierce
Bring your travel kit, then you won't have to wonder. Les On 8/4/06, French Lewis wrote: <Snip>
Over the years my travel case has gotten so large that there is barely enough for room for clothes. However, we must always keep in mind our priorities. Clothes we don't need no stinkin clothes
I've just been taking a grinder, presspot & beans. On a recent trip I only took a carryon bag. Got stopped at every XRay machine.That all stainless steel presspot is rugged, but gets the examiners interest.

This is a multi-part message in MIME format. I also take a hot pot. Coffee makers in hotel rooms do not get the water = hot enough. Now airlines from Hawaii are really enforcing the 50 LB rule
I went to Boston in October of '04 and never found good coffee outside the home roasted I took with me. I did not get recommendations from the list until I got back home though. Guess I asked too late. Pecan Jim On Aug 4, 2006, at 1:59 PM, French Lewis wrote: <Snip>
What happened to Speeder & Earl's across from the Copley Plaza? On Aug 4, 2006, at 10:30 PM, jim gundlach wrote: <Snip> Sandy Andina www.sandyandina.com

Depends where I'm headed. Last trip I was in a residence Inn. The coffee maker didn't get water hot enough but a pot on the stove did fine. Hot water is easy to find in Asia. Every room I've gotten has had a hot pot in the room. Else I'll take an electric kettle.

All this talk of Boston coffee.... well, as one who lives outside of Boston (I admit, though, I seldom go in town these days)... while I'm sure there has to be SOME place that has good coffee, I haven't found it. Dunkin' Donuts is our answer to Charbucks. One on practically every corner. You might want to post the question on the Boston Chowhound: http://www.chowhound.com/boards/show/12 (If you travel up to Beverly, you might want to try The Atomic Cafe. I bought their roasted coffee there while I was waiting for my first green bean shipment - was very pleased, but I don't know how their espresso, etc. is. I just found this website (love the name!):http://www.ihatestarbucks.com/other_choices.phpMany like Diesel, but I was there once and wasn't impressed. Cool set-up, coffee needs help, IMO. But I was only there once... Good Luck - Lynne On Aug 5, 2006, at 12:12 AM, Sandy Andina wrote: <Snip>
Thanks to all that replied. Going in to the trip, I was expecting my hotel room to have the best coffee in Boston (just not sure what homeroast to bring), but my travel kit doesn't include an espresso machine :( Lynn, I live in Connecticut, so I'm very familiar with the density of Dunkin' Donuts in New England. While I wouldn't trade my homeroast for DD coffee, IMO, their lattes are better than Charbucks... Sandy, I'll see if the place you mentioned is still there.
