This Australian inspired coffee chain has five locations located in Boston and roasting facilities in Dorchester. When I first walked into Flat Black Coffee the bright colors created a warm atmosphere on a freezing winter day in New England. The baristas were really friendly and explained the history of the company to us. The owners fell in love with Australian coffee shops and wanted to bring a little bit of that culture back home.
I figured the most appropriate drink to order would be a flat white. Unfortunately, the drink was disappointing, as it tasted watered down and lacked flavor. For third wave coffee lovers, I do not recommend this coffee shop. That said, those looking for a cozy place to study with plenty of seating, Flat Black Coffee is a great option.
