The Herald alerts us to a new place moving into Porter Exchange in Porter Square.
We've been waiting over a year for this to open. It was originally proposed for the former Marino's restaurant site in North Cambridge.
I always enjoy my morning coffee when it is flavored with tribal genicide.
Rwanda has moved forward and made progress since then.
...is it just me? Why are people excited about Rwandeen coffee?
Will it be some sort of gentrified coffee shop, or actual Rwandans? Is this just another ploy to chanrge $4 for a cup of acidic coffee so people from Cambridge can feel superior?
Trust me kids, if you're going to Porter Exchange (aka Lesley University) for import coffee, you're not superior to anyone.
This court stands adjourned.
PS - it could be worse - you could be a dude in his 50s with a backpack from Somerville...don't censor this you apologist. ;)
but that storefront at Porter Exchange has been empty for over a year, with a sign all that time announcing the imminent arrival of Bourbon Coffee. It will be good to have it finally open so we can decide whether it is worth the advance hype.
(Does anyone in Somerville make or sell backpacks? I think the closest place to buy those is City Sports, which also happens to be in Porter Exchange.)
Most of the best coffee is grown in volcanic soils in highland regions.
That would describe Rwanda.
Rebuilding nations, like Vietnam, can use a cash crop that can be sold to the global market.
That would describe coffee.
. . . Starbucks sells isn't bad- strong.
