“Perfect coffee hot or iced.”
Review of The Cup

The Cup
Ranked #5 of 32 Coffee & Tea in Boulder
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 12, 2012

I'm particular about my coffee. When I order a cappuccino I'm looking for a traditional cappuccino (1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk and 1/3 foam) that is about 6 ounces in size. It's all about proportion; twenty ounce concoctions with flavorings and whipped cream are not what I'm seeking. I enjoyed a wonderful small cappuccino at The Cup. Although I would describe the milk/foam as more of a uniform microfoam the proportions were perfect and the strong espresso flavor was present for each sip. It was served with a small biscotti. They also offer "Toddy Coffee" which is cold brewed iced coffee. If you drink your coffee black and drink it iced you want it cold brewed. There is a smoothness to cold brewed iced coffee that you just can not get when you brew it with hot water. That being said they have an extensive coffee menu that will also satisfy those who are looking for the Americanized style coffee drinks. The Cup is located on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, Colorado so there was some great people watching to enjoy.
