Ogawa Coffee Is Opening in Boston's Downtown Crossing
A Japan-based coffee roaster is opening its first shop in the United States--and it would be right in the heart of Boston.
Eater Boston is reporting (via Universal Hub) that Ogawa Coffee is seeking approval for a common victualler license to operate on Milk Street in the city's Downtown Crossing area, with the Boston Licensing Commission looking into the proposal this week. If approved, the coffee shop would feature what an earlier article in The Boston Globe says is "latte art that will blow your mind."
[April 23 update: The Boston Business Journal states that Ogawa will open its Boston shop on May 22.]
The Globe states that Ogawa Coffee will have event space along with a training studio and a brewer's lab, and that Haruna Murayama (the 2010 World Latte Art champion) is going to be overseeing the coffee menu at the Boston shop.
The address for this new coffee place in Downtown Crossing is: Ogawa Coffee, 10 Milk Street, Boston, MA, 02108.
