ZEST: Ristretto crafts extraordinary coffee brews

With a downtown location familiar to many, The Ristretto Coffee Lounge (a.k.a. The Ristretto) in Old Town Square delivers more than just your ordinary brew.

A relentless focus on quality and coffee craftsmanship means sourcing from nationally award-winning roasters and providing expert guidance to help customers navigate a diverse coffee portfolio.

Its “rotating roaster” program highlights recently harvested, freshly roasted, direct-trade coffee from six companies and will soon add in-house roasted selections.

Highly skilled baristas mean flavorful extractions and perfect milk texture for your latte, attentive pour-over service via V60 or Chemex and flawless Hario syphon immersions on industry-leading halogen beam heaters.

Thinking summer? Consider cold brew over ice, nitro-infused or a convenient 12-ounce to-go bottle. Try an affogato, espresso over a scoop of vanilla gelato, as a warm weather diversion.

Complement any drink with liqueurs like Baileys, Kahlua or Amaretto. How about a snack? Two Le Cordon Bleu culinary graduates bake fresh pastries daily.

The Ristretto is particular about its service, discerning in its offerings and meticulous about crafting your drink. It’s a relaxed environment where people can congregate, talk, write, read, entertain or pass the time.

Open daily from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
