The Coffee Trike
For something completely different, check out the coffee from the Coffee Trike, and start your day away from the usual pushing and shoving found in most coffee shops around the country each day. The Coffee Trike is a one-man band who has been providing the people of Boston with his freshly brewed coffee since 2012. All the beans are locally sourced from Massachusetts, as is all of the milk used, so you are not only supporting a local bushiness but in turn, supporting local businesses further up the line.
Address: The Coffee Trike moves throughout the city, serving mainly China Town, you can see their website for updates, and also a live update of their daily location can be found on their Twitter page – @thecoffeetrike
