Blue State Coffee, Wall St, New Haven, CN


Well, you might not agree with their politics, and you might have to explain what a single shot espresso is (“European-style”), but you have to agree: they make a beautiful coffee!

Strong, thick, honey overtones and a sweet finish, this is as good as it gets. Worth the effort.

And you can enjoy the plentiful seats and mellow music while you’re at it.

Looking like a computer shop with a hint of coffee, every other person is on a laptop, iPad or both, simultaneously.
Good coffees, though, so you can see why they come here.
