Trying every espresso roaster in Connecticut brings us to Social Cafe and Coffee Roastery in Groton.


The espresso here is super dark and concentrated.

Almost too much.

It’s lacking a dominant flavor you typically get in espresso, outside of bitterness.

The main thing you taste is burnt.

If you try really hard you can catch some flavor of red fruit like raspberry.

When thinking of it in those terms, it tastes a little like a burned raspberry pie.
