Gracenote Coffee Roasters – Gritty espresso bar

This tiny Espresso bar in the Leather District – better described as “you’re near South Station” – is the Boston outpost of Gracenote Coffee Roasters, a company based in Berlin, Massachusetts. They teamed up with the fit man behind The Coffee Trike to open a brick and mortar shop.

The space is small. There are no tables, and the standing bar is good for balancing your drink on as you add sugar, or take a photo of it, but that’s about it. That being said, it isn’t in business for its capacity, or its lovely shabby chic interior. It’s in the business of serving high grade coffee.

Strong, well-made coffee for connoisseurs is the main attraction, but they also have a splendid lineup of teas, including a perfectly grapefruity rooibos and a white tea, the Sancha, which tastes like smoke and almonds, and I can’t get enough.

It’s perfectly located to pick up a pick-me-up after arriving in Boston, or to get caffeinated before a trip out of South Station, and is the perfect way to begin or end any day in Boston. Coffee, and a dash of quality.
