So G Coffee Roasters (South Glastonbury, CT): You've gotta try this coffee!

kattyeyes Apr 2, 2010 05:12 PM

Stopped in for an iced decaf Americano after hiking through Cotton Hollow today. I asked the barista what espresso they used as it was so delicious I could have had it without sugar or cream. "I roast it here," she explained.

TRY THIS COFFEE. If a decaf iced tastes as fantastic as mine did, I can only imagine what other brewed beverages there taste like. Impressive. This is the place in the Gardiner's Market plaza, next to the video store and Char Koon, across from the P.O. You've gotta go if you're anywhere near South Glastonbury!

    Agreed! we love So G and it is such a welcome addition to this part of town.
    Hope you also enjoyed Cotton Hollow as much as we do. tha teepee structure that my children and I built is a great place to enjoy your goodies from So G

      I meant to add what a great idea I thought it was to see a squeeze bottle of simple syrup among the things to add to one's drink. Brilliant!

      You can sit outside on the patio (no umbrellas, wonder if those will come as the weather improves?) or inside.

      askeenan, ohmygoodness, I took a picture of that teepee structure yesterday, having no idea I "knew" someone who built it. Really neat to learn that here. Such a gorgeous area to hike and a perfect day for it, too. For you:

      thanks for reminding me about this place, I've been meaning to stop in, and your pictures are great, small world with the teepee and all....

        Yes, great coffee and wonderful owners. I can personally speak to the coffee beans they sell as being terrific. They roast it right there on site.

        Anyone know if they are open on Sundays yet? I knew they were looking to do so and I was thinking of heading over there today.

        (strange editing feature. can't seem to get rid of the portion below. Oh well. I suppose it's worth repeating)

          stopped by a couple of mornings last week for "just" a plain coffee, and it was really very good coffee! It's a nice option for that side of town. $1.95 for a large coffee, and yes the owner is very nice, she used to be over at Daybreak.
