If you haven’t visited Arefa’s Espresso in Squirrel Hill you have missed out on a very unique experience in Pittsburgh’s coffee scene. Andre and Marie from Arefa’s will provide you with a great cup of coffee and a superb environment. I spent the day there today at Andre’s request to test his coffee with the refractometer. His coffee was extremely close to spot on with a 1.23 (perfection is 1.3) – Frank was very excited. Andre has started to use our a bit of our coffee. Stop by and ask for a cup of Commonplace Java or Bolivian and tell them about your excitement with the refractometer’s result! Soon, they will be featuring one of the only siphon bars in Pittsburgh (go by and ask them what a Siphonista is).
