Waltham, Mass.-based Global Partners LP, operators of Alltown and Alltown Fresh stores, plus others in the Northeast, aims to bring to its a program a boutique coffee shop experience in a convenient and affordable on-the-go setting.
The company in 2021 rolled out bean-to-cup machines in more than 200 of its 277 c-stores. Customers now can get a fresh hot or iced coffee brewed fresh right in front of them. The coffee is roasted in small batches in Connecticut by a fourth-generation family roaster, using only the highest quality beans.
Alltown Fresh Coffee offers blends from around the world, including three fair trade blends: Sol (notes of dried fruit, cocoa and honey), Jua (chocolate and red wine) and Sumatra Takengon (spices, herbs, cocoa). The other blends are Monadnock (fruit and toasted nuts), Stratton (chocolate) and Blue Hills (fruit and toasted nuts). Alltown also boasts offering beans that come from one geographic area, which it said leads to the best character, flavor and quality of coffee.
Customer comment: “The store is always clean despite being in a more urban area. The employees are friendly and greeted me upon entering.”
