Last week we took the opportunity to go into Manhattan and explore the vibrant coffee scene of the city. On a rainy New York day we coffee-crawled around NYC’s Lower East Side and reminded ourselves of the delightful world of coffee we are a part of.
There were six stops on our coffee tour, and each provided us with something different to marvel at: from that delicious shot of espresso the barista wanted to get just right to the filter coffee dripped to perfection; from the presentation of the coffee beans waiting to be sold to the presentation of the latte with a rosetta in the center of the cup; from standing room only to a bevy of seats in a coffee shop that doubles as a theater lobby, we experienced coffee.
It was awakening, like that kick of caffeine always is, and a great reminder of why we do what we do: we love that there are so many passionate people out there working tirelessly to make the best cup of coffee they can.
Because that’s what we do, too: we want to be a part of the process that takes you to the best cup of coffee.
Next time, we’re going to Brooklyn!
