Listed in Connecticut Magazine’s Best of Connecticut 2010: Food and Drink as one of the best coffee bars, Molten Java Coffee Roasters energizes lethargic locals with arabica beans freshly prepared and purchased from reputable traders. The café's brigade of baristas roast beans on site just days before serving using a signature "calico" roast and comedic insults from B-list celebrities. Like starting a maze from the finish, every bean purchased can be traced back to its plantation, which ensures the beans are grown under the best conditions. Closet caffeine addicts can partake in privacy with take-home, fill-your-own bags of fresh coffee beans ($12 per pound), which are air-roasted and blended with the calico roast. Pair any coffee with a warm burrito such as the breakfast burrito ($4.50) or Mayan burrito, a mélange of black bean, seasoned rice, salsa, and cheddar prisoners caged in a soft tortilla ($4.75+).
Painter's Supply stocks vibrant interior and exterior paints from top-industry brands alongside the tools needed to apply the new hues. Renters, homeowners, or tree-house speakeasy kingpins can complement paint schemes with implements such as tray liners ($5.13), microfiber roller covers ($3.99), paintbrushes ($20.49 for 2.5" brush), paint pails ($12.53), and paint-pail liners ($5.99). Feel free to solicit professional opinions or appraisals on a dumpster mural from each storefront's design center, which is helmed by proficient painters.
Mike Merrick launched Fish Window Cleaning 36 years ago after leaving his secure job as a banker to launch his own business. He founded Fish Window Cleaning in 1978, soon assembling a staff of uniformed and punctual technicians and, 16 years ago, establishing a network of franchises in 42 states.
