Test Kitchen: Coffee concoctions

I love coffee more than I love most things, and I rely on it to function each day, so this Test Kitchen is near and dear to my heart. My first taste of coffee was at 13, when my aunt bought me a caramel Frappuccino from Starbucks while we were back-to-school shopping. I was thrilled. I thought it was a great treat, and I’d never felt more grown up.

Would you try butter in your coffee?

Lately, I’ve seen people touting the health benefits of adding butter to their coffee. As an avid coffee drinker myself, I try to stay up on the latest trends in the coffee world. I’ve tried adding collagen to my daily cup of joe, and I’ve perfected my at-home cold brew routine. But adding butter to my coffee is just something I couldn’t bring myself to do.

Espresso flight

Who said you have to choose just one espresso drink? Get yourself an espresso flight at CRéMA Éspresso Bar and Café and try four to five to find out what your favorite is. Add a cannoli or other baked good to your order. The café also offers breakfast and lunch options.

Tremont Coffee Co.

Extend your stay at Tremont Coffee Co. with a Chemex of hot coffee, $6.55. With more than two mugs worth of coffee, you can share or keep it all for yourself. Add a honey butter or brown sugar cinnamon stuffed croissant ($4.95 each) from GourZants to complete your treat.
