1) From: French Lewis
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

Bring your travel kit, then you won't have to wonder.

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.

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.

What happened to Speeder & Earl's across from the Copley Plaza?

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 -

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.
