As we wended our way through rural Maine -- after a nice breakfast in Mexico -- we found a café with good coffee and a strong sense of humor near the convergence of streams and mountain roadways. (Note the oxbow lake in the southwest corner of the map above.)
|Curb appeal is very important for independent cafés; I know some really good places that have closed because they did not pay attention to this. Moose Muck is the opposite -- this Coffee Maven was drawn right in!|
The Moose Muck Coffee House makes playful use of its name, including a signature drink of coffee with a shot of espresso. The coffee is locally roasted and delicious, though the staff do not know much about its origins. Bonus: Equal Exchange chocolate is available. Oddly, the shop has no web site and its Facebook page has been shut down. That is odd for a café of this kind in 2018.
