Hey hipsters. Here's a reason to go west of Vermont.
Coffee. No, like, the really serious kind.
If you sip espresso with a measure of scrutiny usually reserved for wine, then you must bring your discerning palette to Coffee Commissary. It's the type of establishment that treats brewing your beans like an art form. You'll know this is the case before even getting a taste. How? Well, because some of the baristas have finely kempt mustaches-- that's how.
The beverage menu is pretty straightforward. No blenders, so no frou frou frappablendedwhatevers. What they do have, is coffee brewed by the cup via hand pour, cold brew iced coffee, and velvety espresso.
If you need a little nourishment to sponge up your caffeine, they also offer Coolhaus ice cream sandwiches, homemade granola, and an assortment of delicious pastries from local bakeries (if there's only one bran muffin left, I'll arm wrestle you for it).
