Central Coffee Co. is an independent, family-owned coffee shop in the Plaza Midwood community. Upon entering, one is met with a cozy, comfortable atmosphere, complete with an exposed brick wall, a small fireplace, plenty of local art, and lots of tables, couches, and chairs. One can't help but be tempted to linger. WiFi is available, as well as a terrific array of goodies made in-house daily. The real and best reason to come, however, is for the beverages. Both French press and drip coffee is offered, and the selection varies daily. The baristas obviously love and excel at what they do, creating latte art and expertly-poured shots of espresso. While the variety of flavors is limited (especially compared to a chain coffee shop), the quality of the lattes and cappuccinos more than makes up for it. The only thing that might be an issue for customers is the lack of parking--there's only a small lot outside the building. For food and drinks as good as these, though, the Central Coffee Co. is worth a walk!
