During the year I spent working in Massachusetts, I'd often pass through Hartford when coming back from Scrabble, and I'd always stop at either J. Rene or Hartford Baking Company. It's been a couple of years, though, so I googled around and found this list of Connecticut coffeehouses...

Unfortunately, my choice, Tisane Euro Asian Cafe, disappointed me. The decor, bar on one side, cafe on the other, was fine, and they have outlets and wifi, but the Bunn-brewed coffee, from either Saccuzzo or East Indies Coffee Company, was disappointing.

Moreover, the young womyn working the register was quite dismissive when I tried to find out what coffee they served.

I will not be back.
