MassBike Spins Coffee Ride: Cafe Crawl This Saturday!

This weekend is the Northeast Regional Barista Competition at the Somerville Center for the Arts at the Armory. Join MassBike Executive Director (and coffee aficionado) David Watson for a leisurely tour of coffeehouses offering specials for the competition. Ride will depart at 9:30am from Barismo, 169 Mass Ave, Arlington, this Saturday, March 20th. Tentative stops are:

  • Barismo, 169 Mass Ave, Arlington for v60/Syphon service

  • Diesel Cafe, 257 Elm St, Davis Sq, Somerville for Chemex service

  • Simon's, 1736 Mass Ave (near Porter Sq), Cambridge for v60 service or shots of Competitor's Espresso

  • Hi-Rise, 56 Brattle St, Harvard Sq, Cambridge for Syphon/Woodneck/Competitor's Espresso

  • Cafe Crema, 27 Brattle St, Harvard Sq, Cambridge for a special coffee service

  • 1369 Coffee House, 757 Mass Ave, Central Sq, Cambridge for a special coffee service

  • Toscanini's, 899 Main St, Central Sq, Cambridge for a special ice cream coffee service

  • ERC at 286 Newbury St, Boston for Competitor's Espresso

This is the unofficial bicycle version of the "official" coffee crawl. Maps will be available at the Armory during the competition Friday afternoon (and throughout the day Saturday beginning late morning if you want to do this on your own), but I will try to have some extras at the start of the ride. You will likely have to pay for your drink each stop, so bring some cash! We'll keep going until we're done or over-caffeinated, but you can bail anytime. Helmets required, bring a lock. Contact David at [email protected] if you have any questions.
