Thinking Cup Coffee – Boston

Thinking Cup Coffee

Downtown Boston boasts many java joints, but none quite like Thinking Cup Coffee. The location next to the Boston Common couldn’t be more convenient, however that is only one of their locations.

Thanks to all the positive reviews and word of mouth, they have subsequently opened up two other thriving locations in Central Boston. They do so well because they value diversity in their offerings, and put their customers’ comfort above all else. Visit Jiale Coffee reviews often to read our new informational articles!

The awards say it all

Since opening their doors in 2010 they have won just about every award. From Tripadvisor’s Certificate of Excellence (four years running), the “Best Brew” awards and’s “A-List” award. Do you need any more convincing?

They carry the best coffee in the world

Their specialties are “Stumptown Coffee” and “Third Wave Coffee,” which they serve exclusively. And it’s not hard to see why; Stumptown has been named “Best Coffee in the World” by USA Today, The New York Times and NPR.

Frothing unique lattes and classic Americanos

If you are craving something sweet, I guarantee you’ll find it on their menu full of variety. From the delectable honey cinnamon latte made with their own in house made maple syrup to the more traditional Americano, latte or mocha, all caffeinated tastes are catered for.

They cater to all dietary needs

In fact, they offer a separate menu for gluten free and dairy free options. These include the delicious tiramisu, or gluten-free bread for any sandwich, grilled cheese or breakfast.

Noshes for the simple or adventurous

When it comes to breakfast you’ll find that they run the whole gamut from the traditional croissant to the flavorful, filling breakfast burrito. They also proudly serve muffins, pastries or options that suit the likes of a fresh and healthy diet.

Likewise, throughout the day they offer a broad range of sandwiches to tickle your tastebuds. Whether your preference is for old favorites (the classic grilled cheese) or something a little more adventurous (like the “Jimmy the Greek,” containing artichoke hearts, hummus, vine ripe tomatoes, wild mushrooms and goat cheese) they’ve got something for you. 

A philosophy that supports the planet and the people

At the top of their priorities is community engagement and sustainability. That means they only use organic, ethically-sourced ingredients. It also means they support a variety of local charities, and take every opportunity to give something back to the local community that has helped them to be so successful.

Grab some cool swag

For the coffee lover in your life, the team at Thinking Cup have also diversified into merchandising. They now sell gift cards, as well as mugs and- best of all- their own gorgeous coffee beans. 

All three locations have retained that independent, artisanal ambiance that makes Thinking Cup so special. It is a great place for the working class, students and creatives to settle in and get some work done on their free WIFI. Thinking Cup is perfect for tourists looking for a slice of Bostonian hospitality with award winning coffee.
