On the search for the best espresso in Connecticut brings us to The Coffee Pedaler in New Haven.

This little hole in the wall has odd hours, and it took a couple of trips to get here because some days they were just randomly closed despite their hours saying they are open.

I came for the espresso.

Overall, the espresso here is a very odd blend of flavors.

It is simultaneously too sweet and too bitter at the same time.

The sweetness of the espresso is like that of berries, which would be nice if it weren’t so bitter.

Overall, the takeway is pleasant, but nothing incredible.

The Rating:

Everything is pulled and made with care and expertise, but the espresso itself could be better.
