Best Cup of Coffee

The 'Spro

Baltimore County Public Library, 320 York Road, Towson, (410) 296-0023,

Posted 9/17/2008

We here at Baltimore's Plainest Alt-Weekly like a cup of coffee--and that's it. No funny stuff. But it's difficult to find a good, no less great, cup of coffee around here, even at places that employ so-called baristas and supposedly specialize in coffee. But at--who knew?--the Towson public library, there's 'Spro, serving up cup after cup of delicious, dark, bitter, woody, chocolatey coffee that pleasantly lingers on the tongue after you've sipped. The baristas (and it's safe to call them that here), even when they're just pouring a cup of joe, make sure the cream/sugar/coffee ratio is perfect; they're not going to let you dump that stuff in there yourself and mess it up. The folks at the 'Spro travel far and wide to get their coffees from good places, too, like Hines out of Vancouver and Rancho San Francisco from Chiapas, Mexico. They also serve espressos, cappuccinos, etc. here, of course, and have nice selection of snacks and Mexican sodas, but we're sticking with coffee and a splash of cream. Perfect.
