Baltimore Coffee & Tea Company
Each day, the Timonium and Frederick branches brew eight different types of coffee (Annapolis brews six per day), mining from the Baltimore Coffee and Tea Company's coffee reserve, a treasure trove of around 120 different varieties of beans (full pounds start at $11.90). Types of coffee ($1.60 for 12 oz.) are offered on a rotating basis, with flavors such as coconut cream and pumpkin spice introducing new aromas to bored taste buds, as well as Swiss Water–decaffeinated varieties for those that love the taste of coffee but find themselves inadvertently building a shrine to Grease after two cups of regular joe. Introduce yourself to the well-crafted wares of Mother Earth with a cup of tea ($1.95 for 20 oz.)—the shop features more than 1,000 kinds of leaves for consumption—or go full throttle with a ribbon of 20 Eastern Shore tea bags (starting at $4.75) in more than 100 flavors. Try the fresh baked muffins ($2.25–$2.75 each), Italian gelato ($3.25, small; $4.50, large), bagels ($1.50; $0.75 extra for regular cream cheese), and other delicious pastries. Prices may vary by location.
