As a company, Crema possesses a true mastery of coffee. Their website boasts numerous pages detailing the nature of their specialty coffee: where it’s grown, how it’s processed, how it’s brewed, and how they ensure that each step results in better-tasting coffee. And to learn more, sign up for one of their coffee classes. Crema serves nuanced beverages with a variety of aromas and flavors. If you wonder where to start, ask for the Cuban Espresso. To deepen your experience, ask for beans from Rwanda, Brazil, or Ecuador, and see if you can taste the difference.
Come to Frothy for the coffee, but stay for the atmosphere. Here, you can enjoy a meal, a glass of wine, or a pint in a creative and approachable environment. With three locations in Nashville (and one in nearby Franklin), a Frothy Monkey is always near. For breakfast, try a combination of cheesy grits, arugula, tomato jam, prosciutto, and dijon sauce. For lunch or dinner, the quinoa burger is satisfying. As for coffee, ask for their Brazil Serra Do Cabral Tropical Microlot, a specialty brew made from beans grown in an innovative and ecologically-friendly way.
