It takes some serious, um, beans to open a coffee shop across the street from a Starbucks, but Café Fixe is going on six years in Brookline’s Washington Square. The sleek café and espresso bar elevates your standard caffeine delivery system to an art form -- and we’re not just talking about the cool designs they make with foamed milk. Choose from coffee brewed with a precisely tuned FETCO extractor, or a pour-over carefully prepared using an Abid Clever Dripper, or other delicious hot beverages made with equipment that sounds more like it belongs in Walter White’s meth lab instead of a coffee shop. Actually didn’t they have a coffee maker in that lab? They probably used a FETCO.
