Spro is one of my favorite places for coffee in Baltimore. Each cup is hand brewed, with exceptional care and attention. Their 'coffee of the month' changes quite often, and they feature beans from all over the world with accurate descriptions of taste, aroma, and texture. They also bake scrumptious scones, biscuits, and breakfast sandwiches that you'd be hard-pressed to find if you arrive a moment past 8:30.
The space is unassuming and casual, with families, couples, and students working on their laptops. If you are a coffee enthusiast and enjoy places where they labor over the making of the coffee as much as you enjoy drinking it, then this is the place for you. Stop by with a friend and a couple of hours to kill. I always did, and it made the coffee taste that much better.
