I spent a day in NYC and wanted to check out coffee places. Great coffee places!
Using a few Reddit posts and other sites, I compiled a list of coffee places I wanted to go to. I made a Google Maps route of the locations, went old school and printed out said map, and stopped by most of these places with a friend of mine.
It was a lot of fun and it was exciting to try new methods of brewing (such as the Aeropress and the Clever Coffee Brewer … which most people don’t know about yet is really great), and the distinct flavors of beans (Burundi coffee is very sweet and acidic, yet Bolivian coffee is robust and smooth).
I am sure there are other great places in NYC for coffee, but for a fun time with coffee enthusiasts, do a tour. You’ll be wired at the end, but you’ll have a greater appreciation for coffee.
