Bucking the trend toward individual black coffee brewing in high-end coffee bars, a native Australian today opened a Down Under-inspired coffee bar with a primary focus on espresso drinks and meat pies.
Cuppa Coffee Owner Todd Moore says he was inspired to create a coffee bar that would provide some familiar comfort to native Aussies, especially those from his hometown of Sydney. In addition to espresso-based cappuccinos and lattes, the shop will be serving meat pies from DUB Pies Boston. Moore describes the pies as like “what pizza and a hot dog are to an American.”
All of Cuppa’s coffees, including its selection of drip and iced coffees, are being supplied by Hopkinton, Mass.-based Red Barn Coffee Roasters, which has been supplying Boston-area cafes and restaurants since 1997. Cuppa Coffee is at 1 Merrimac St. at the site of a former Mobil gas station and across the street from the Haymarket T station.
