This little blurb about Spruce Street Espresso re-ran in the city paper this week. Thanks to everyone for their support and good words! It’s great to see that folks are recognizing our efforts!
1101 Spruce St.
Cafe/Coffeeshop, GayborhoodSpruce Street Espresso takes coffee seriously. Its selection is updated every few weeks, with new varieties coming in all the time. (All of SSE’s coffees are roasted by Counter Culture Coffee in Durham, N.C., which sources its beans with social and environmental standards in mind.) The cafe brews with French presses, and also sells bags of whole beans imported from the likes of Papua New Guinea, Ethiopia, Peru and Kenya. The space is unavoidably tiny, but couches and outdoor seating make it a nice stop-off to grab a cup and peruse the paper before the midday rush. Wireless Internet available. Open Mon.-Fri., 7 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sat.-Sun., 8 a.m.-8 p.m.
