Funnel Mill Rare Coffee and Tea
Don’t order soy lattes or vanilla-shot cappuccinos at Funnel Mill Rare Coffee and Tea. Here it’s about the bean, not a caffeinated sugar fix. An informed staff waxes on about full-bodied Jamaica Blue Mountain, a piquant mocha from Yemen, and a lively, winy Tanzania peaberry from the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro. Rarest of all is a sweet Sumatran blend called Kopi Luwak, which is made from fermented coffee beans found in—we kid you not—civet feces. Since only several hundred pounds of Kopi are produced each year, the price for a cup is $65. Bring your credit card and an open mind.
