Coffee Trade is a special gem in Avon. With good coffee (lots of variety), fair prices and a friendly,,pleasant atmosphere, it surpasses the impersonal, hyper feeling of Starbucks and the bland boring coffee at DD. And Coffee Trade's own roaster ensures freshness and a diving aroma.

Purchased two pounds of fresh, coarsely ground coffee today for the French press at home and a coffee for my ride to work. The selection of coffees is outstanding, but the best part of the experience is the friendliness of the staff. Always smiling, always friendly, just great people. If you are in Avon and need a coffee, it's worth... More

This is my favorite coffee shop in the Hartford area and I have been to a lot in my lifetime here. The atmosphere and gift shop are charming, the staff couldn't be kinder or more pleasant and I do love their coffee. Try this place!!

Had a macchiato here and one across the street at Dom's. The one at Dom's was better, but more expensive. The atmosphere here is charming, with outside seating and inside among the antiques. For coffee, Dom's. For atmosphere, Coffee Trade. Take your pick.

When I walk through the door, I am transported to another place, out of my everyday life. I'm not sure why, but the ambience, smells, and friendly people seem to work on me in a special way. The products are delicious; I'm spoiled by them and can't even consider Starbucks anymore. When you need to relax, give this place a... More

I'm one of the regulars who buys coffee by the pound. After 12 lbs, the 13th is free! I love all the flavors and the gingerbread latte is to die for. I also love how they make hot cocoa for my son - not too hot so he can sip it right away. The decor is cute and I always... More

I've been to Coffee Trade in the past and the coffee is good, however, when a coffee shop doesn't open on Saturday until 8:30 a.m. that's simply too late! So, I went to Starbucks instead.

Fresh, excellent coffee which can be enjoyed in a beautiful atmosphere. A wonderful collection of antiques for sale, as well. Stop by and you will want to return every day.

Take visitors from out of town here. The place is full of character in the center of old Avon. Watch the coffee being roasted. I had a "frappe" of salted caramel, my friends had regular brew with an elephant ear pastry. Coffee concoctions can be prepared hot or iced. We nursed our drinks in one of the rooms with antiques...

Was in town for 5 days and we stopped here everyday. Great place for the coffee of your choice, places to sit and visit inside and out. Some nice antiques on display that are for sale.
