While Jeremy (On the Silk Road Blog) was in town back in March, we got up to a bit of exploring and visited Prufrock Coffee upon the recommendation of a friend to see what all the fuss was about. The L-shaped bar houses two lines: espresso machine and alternative brewing methods. As I had previously had one of their exceptional espressos with milk at Present, we chose to try both the filter coffee and the siphon method. As a special treat, they even let us try their awesome cold brew experiment that wasn’t for sale. It’s a far cry from Starbucks and Costa as the coffees are much more subtle and complex, due to the brewing methods and roasting process for their beans. The baristas were all super nice and patient with all of our questions, too. If you love coffee and gadgets, swing by for a visit, you won’t be disappointed.
