After only 6 years of messing around, getting new parts, trying to figure out wiring, etc., my Rancilio Z9 two group head lever espresso machine works! it isn’t quite ready for public shots; I need a cart and more to take it anywhere out of my basement. And it’s a little finicky; I have to […]
These are new coffees that are guaranteed to please discerning palates. They cost a little more than our ready-to-drink daily coffees in airpots (which we also make by hand!) That’s because of the extra labor involved and because we have to pay more for the green coffee. But try one or all of these, and […]
Frank Fitch playing in the store today 10-12. Contest: tell us what this is and what it’s for. First 5 people to get it right get a free small coffee or $1.50 off any other drink. Yes, it is another object made by Bob. And sure, he will make one for you for an outrageous […]
Here is a photo I took a few years back in Ethiopia; Roast magazine just featured it on the page called “Parting Shots” at the end of each issue, in this case March/April 2018.

Frank Fitch and Friends will play at Oxford Coffee Co., 21 Lynn Ave. between the liquor store and La Rosa’s, 10-12 AM this Saturday (tomorrow). They are fine musicians and they plan a wide range of stuff, from Gypsy Swing to good old country.
Here is our selection of electric grinders. New for us is the sweet little Bodum Bistro, bottom left, at $110. We decided to carry these with metal, not plastic, bodies, in copper or silver color. Plastic housing models are cheaper but look cheap! The Bodum comes with a 2-year guarantee. We still have a few […]
To correct an earlier post on Facebook, we will be close July 2, 3, and 4. Back once and for all for this year on July 5. We apologize for any inconvenience, and we hope you find something else to drink–not coffee!–while we are closed.
We have compost to give away! Coffee grounds make an excellent soil amendment, especially for plants that love slightly acidic soil. The paper filters are fully biodegradable and can be dumped into a pile or bin to go back to nature. Stop in, with your own container, or better yet, call us at 609-4000 to […]
