    I was in a (gasp) Starbucks this morning, and asked to have my coffee “Boston”. They were clueless. What is the conventional wisdom regarding coffee Boston style?

    Hi Jon;

    I’m afraid I’m pretty clueless too when it comes to “Boston” coffee — I did a little searching and put up several recipes here — let me know if any of them look right.

    Otherwise, if you can describe what a “Boston” is, I’m sure we’d all love to know!

    Funny, I just thought about this Boston style coffee thing. I was 9 years old making a cup of coffee for myself (yeah, my parents let me sometimes) and I put a ton of cream in it. Some person, she was maybe in her 70’s back then said, I was making that coffee almost “Boston”. I figured it was an older term but that’s how I learned it. I’m looking for ways to make it too – and nope, Starbucks has their own weird coffee language, they have no clue of the old diner days.

    I JUST left my local coffee purveyor (not SBUX) and had to explain “Boston” style coffee to them since I always make them give me the cup before they put the coffee in.

    I’m a native Chicagoan but used to work in a hot dog stand where people would constantly come in and order their coffee “Boston”. What I learned was that not only does Boston style mean extra cream, it also means that the cream is added BEFORE the coffee.

    The reason for this is that if you pour the cream in AFTER the coffee, the cream actually gets scalded when it hits all of that hot coffee. Putting the cream in first allows it to come up to temperature slower.

    Try it. You’ll taste the difference.

    I go to Dunkin’ Donuts every morning and ask for my coffee “Boston” they seem clueless, and told me that coffee Boston style has sugar. I tell them constantly that coffee Boston Style means tons of cream. Could you please clarify this so I can show them to post it.
