Fleck Is Opening in Newton Highlands
A new coffee and espresso bar is on its way to the western suburbs of Boston, and its name comes from an interesting term.
Eater Boston is reporting that Fleck is opening in Newton Highlands, with the Walnut Street specialty coffee shop getting its name from the term "tiger flecking," which refers to the patterns of coffee particles at the top of a shot of espresso that "indicate a good extraction and proper grind." The article says that in addition to coffee, there will also be pastries offered.
It looks like Fleck could be opening in early February.
[February 9 update: A new article from Eater Boston states that Fleck is now open.]
The address for this new coffee bar in Newton is: Fleck, 1169 Walnut Street, Newton, MA, 02461. Its Facebook page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/fleckcoffee while its Twitter page is at https://twitter.com/fleckcoffee
