Among the several hipster coffee shops cropping up in Boston, Ogawa stands out. This Japanese coffee shop treats each cuppa as a work of art. From growing their own beans to having a team of artists who specialize in latte art – Ogawa is at the top of its coffee game. Besides coffee, they offer smoothies, teas, and breakfast (I can’t wait to try their avocado on toast!)
We walked into their small Milk Street coffee shop on a wintry, sunny morning – an ideal time for coffee. Inside, the arresting aroma of caffeine is hard to ignore. The staff is patient as you make a decision, and the wait is excruciatingly difficult. But what’s a few minutes for a foamy cup that has been painstakingly made to look like a work of art? Their chocolate mint latte turns out to be a delicious, heady experience. My secret to figuring out what to order? Head to their Instagram page, pick a photo that looks appealing and order on. You won’t be disappointed.
