The Mandarin Oriental in Boston is offering coffee lovers a brand new way to experience their favorite beverage with their new MOspresso pop-up coffee shop. Located in the lobby of the hotel, Mandarin Oriental has partnered with coffee brand Illy to create the coffee haven.
The pop up will serve Illy’s caffeinated and decaf signature blends that use Arabica beans that are sourced from four continents. The fragrant blend has taste notes of caramel, toast and chocolate. This signature blend is priced at $5 while other artisan specialty coffees including cappuccinos, lattes and espressos and premium Dammann Frères loose leaf teas, will be available for $6.
