Shout-out for Caffe d’Bolla
Zagat has singled out Salt Lake City’s Caffe d’Bolla in its list of "50 States, 50 Must-Try Coffee Shops." The 8-year-old downtown coffee bar is known for buying beans from small farms from around the world, micro-roasting them in the shop, and brewing them individually. There is no drip coffee here; instead they are brewed through a siphon, also called "vaccum pot" brewing. John Piquet, owner along with his wife Yiching, says he roasts coffee beans up to four times a week and espresso every week or so.
After he concocts a cup of Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Kochere coffee — advertised as tasting like figs and dates, mixed berries, stewed peach and cocoa — Piquet tells a customer to "treat it like a glass of wine." It must sit for a couple of minutes because it’s warmed to 200 degrees and it needs to "open up."
Where » 249 E. 400 South #B, Salt Lake City; 801-355-1398.
Open » Monday-Saturday until 6 p.m. (No set opening time; it’s whenever the owners get to their shop from their Murray home).
