•Dwelltime, Cambridge (my go-to local café) [they serve barismo beans] •Barismo, Arlington (they own dwelltime) [serving barismo beans] •Simon's - Porter Sq. (egggselent) [serving a variety of beans] •Hi-Rise - Harvard/Porter [can't remember what they have, often barismo] •Voltage - Cambridge near Kendell Sq. is awesome and classy. •Render - Boston gave me the best shot ever (but you get OK shots from the other barista)- also great drip. [serving Counter Culture rustico and toscana] •Three Little Figs - Somerville (they weight their shots!) NEVER been here but I only hear amazing things from other cafés even. •RJ Gourmet - weird name and odd location, but a GREAT tiny café. You can walk here and stop into voltage on your way from the Kendall T-stop. •Diesel Café in Davis Sq. and Bloc 11 in Union are owned by the same people and can serve a good cup depending on the barista but very hit or miss. They hooked me on Black Cat when I was just starting out (also have the best bean selection). •Also check the Counter Culture place near Bloc 11 which may have things going on while your there. •Thinking Cup gives OK shots of Hairbender but I am less and less a fan of that coffee. - this is the only down-downtown shop that I know of- but who leaves Cambridge/Somerville anyway?
1369 in Central and Inman does not have great shots, neither does Crema in Harvard. I've never been to Area Four.
