thinkingcup, a coffee shop opened in late 2010 near the Boston Common, which serves Stumptown roast, and has been recognized by people who make "best" lists, has received another honor. This one comes from Krups, who called for a public vote on its facebook page.
I am always a little suspicious of these industry-related awards -- and for this one in particular, it would be so easy to stuff the ballot box -- but thinkingcup is very well regarded. Stumptown coffee comes from their Brooklyn roasting site the day after it's roasted and there are good sweet and savory items served at the shop.
Other Krups winners are Condesa Coffee in Atlanta, Metropolis Coffee in Chicago, White Rock Coffee in Dallas, M.E. Swing in Washington, D.C., Cafe Dulce in LA, Tinta y Cafe in Miami, 9th St. Espresso in New York, Elixr in Philadelphia, and Four Barrel in San Francisco.
