490 Hamline Ave S., St. Paul
There has to be a reason that I go out of my way almost 40 miles about once a week to visit Kopplin’s, and that answer is inside of this cup. Right off the bat, their motto is “The Perfect Espresso”, and they serve their espresso drinks with grass-fed cow’s milk from local, organic farms. The last few times I have visited, it has been the same barista and she has continued to serve a consistent delicious drink. They described the cappuccino on their menu as 1 part espresso, 1 part milk and 1 part “micro foam” which was the first time I had heard that term. If you live in the Hamline University area or just want to get your fix, make the effort to stop in here next time.
