The Well is Boston’s only non-profit coffeehouse, with two locations in South Station and on State Street. It’s also one of the only spots that serves cold brew in light, medium, and dark varieties, if you’re particular about caffeine on ice (we are). Otherwise, there’s also a large selection of flavored drinks with things like white chocolate, English toffee, and coconut. As a head’s up - the wifi at State Street can be slow, in case you’re trying to get some work done when you stop by.
