Ever since my Reneka Techno died, the search for good espresso drinks in the Boston area has changed from an interesting challenge to a more urgent need. During a trip to Seattle, I was easily able to locate top quality espresso houses like Vivace, but Boston is not a coffee town at heart. Dunkin’ Donuts seems to be the most popular source for black gold around here. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon Taste in Newtonville. It’s a surprisingly good Seattle-style coffee house. All the barista’s seem to be able to pull off impressive-quality latté art, and appear to actually know what they are doing. The espresso is the best I’ve had in the area.
As you can see from the blurry picture above, it’s effectively caffeinated as well.
Worth checking out for sure.
