Bold coffee

We stopped in this very tiny coffee shop for a quick mid-morning pick-me-up. Service is quick, and our two coffees bold and flavorful. The shop is very tiny with only a few small tables, and it is below street level

Excellent range of coffee beans. Professionally roasted. My go-to source of beans in the region. The beans compare well to Stumptown, Blue Bottle, La Colombe, et al. The coffee shop/barista experience isn't in the same class as the beans, but you can get a good cup of coffee there.

I had to catch a train and was just hanging out for a few hours. This is a great cup of coffee and delicious, mouth watering scones! Staff is so nice. Locals hanging out and you may catch some good gossip too. The best coffee I had in a week - on the East coast. Maybe the best carrot cake... More

From coffee to tea to maté, very drink we've had at Brattleboro over the years has been worth the visit and money spent. While we prefer the simplistic purity of traditional coffee and plain coffee-with-milk drinks (cappucinos & lattes) ..... their specialty menus are crazy creative and they pull off the crafting of these exotic drinks with keen precision and...

Mocha Joe's has great coffee and nothing more need be said. It is the first place we stop when we get to Brattleboro and our last stop before we drive out. This is what Starbuck's could be like if there was only one of them, it had great coffee, and the ambiance of a genuine local cafe.

Full disclosure... I love Mocha Joe's! Lattes are perfect balance of creamy and full flavor espresso; cocoa for the kids sweet but not overly sweet; staff that is friendly and engaging; and atmosphere that makes you feel at home and welcome. 8If you're in Brattleboro do not miss Mocha Joe's!!

A favorite place for years. Cozy, comfortable atmosphere. Best coffee in town, either brewed in the cafe or take home. Wonderful pastries too.

I've had Mocha Joe's coffee on a few occasions while staying in Vermont, but this is the first time I'd visited the establishment. Small & quaint. I really liked the 'feel' of the shop. I rarely drink coffee, but when I do, I definitely drink 'good' coffee. ...And this did not disappoint. Friendly, fast service. Tasty, inexpensive, high quality coffee.

I'm not a coffee drinker but my fiancé is. He liked the fresh ground and brewed coffee. It's a quaint underground coffee shop with great pastries to go with the coffee or tea.
