New coffee place in Carrboro, NC (Gray Squirrel)

Noel_B | Oct 2, 201512:07 PM     1

Gray Squirrel is a new coffee place that opened in Carrboro. The coffee is amazing. They have the usual barrista drinks like cappuccinos made with great technique (a rich crema, microfoam, a pretty flower pattern in the steamed milk, all in Italian style cups). They also have fancy extracted coffees like Kyoto-style cold brewing that that are unusual and delicious in their own oddball way. It looks like they roast their own beans, and the flavor shows it. The staff are hip without being hipsters, pleasantly knowledgeable without being coffee snobs. It's a quiet oasis, at least for now.
Some details on where it is, as it can be easy to miss. It is between the music venue Cat's Cradle and the Arts Center,, just down the road from Weaver Street Market. It shares space with the new brewpub there called YesterYears, so look for that sign. Oh and apparently it is not spelled Grey Squirrel (with an E)--the things you learn. 300 E Main St, Carrboro, NC. http://www.graysquirrelcoffee.com/
