It’s unfortunate that more people don’t know about Essex Street Market, and that Porto Rico Importing has a (comically small) stand inside. I’m a big fan of Porto Rico’s drip coffee and grabbed a medium cup ($1.55 w/ tax).
Porto Rico’s coffee is consistently strong and top-notch whichever location you choose. If you drink it without the milk/sugar you can taste how deep and rich their brew is. Amazingly, they don’t charge a premium for their coffee. I shouldn’t give them any ideas…
