May 29, 2020 3 min read No Comments

Do you love coffee? Personally, I am obsessed with coffee! If I could take it safely as an IV straight to the bloodstream…I would! But you shouldn’t limit your idea “coffee cities” to just like Seattle for Starbucks or “Seattle’s Best”. Enjoy this shortlist of some of the best coffee shops in New York.

New York is a metropolitan hub for the world! New York City is also known for having world wide coffee brands that are making the best cup of brew you’ll taste within the five boroughs. This is also a great way to caffeine up before you go and visit the free museums of NYC!

1. Everyman Espresso

Much like the name indicates the mission for the Everyman Espresso is to make and share “damn fine” espresso! The hospitality when you walk into any of their three locations will astound you. They believe that if you have “damn fine” coffee then you will be in a better mood and thus be a happier person all around much of that joy is shared with their customers when you walk in the door.

2. Birch Coffee

Birch’s philosophy is “we care for people first and coffee is a very close second”. Everything about this coffee shop is going to be the epitome of that phrase “If you love your job, you’ll never work a day in your life”. This brain child of two friends has turned into one of the more popular coffee shops in the city. What I love about them is that they are unique. They even have their YouTube show that you can check out where they interview their regular customers where they talk about their ideas, dreams, thoughts, ect. This isn’t just a coffee shop you are walking into but a family.

3. Stumptown Coffee Roasters

Coffee is about pleasure, enjoying the simple things, taking a moment throughout your day to sip on a delicious cup of joe. Stumptown Coffee Roasters believes in these little passionate moments in life. Every sip you take is a culmination of hard work, thousands of miles in a single journey to make it from the field into your cup. It is this kind of dedication to every decision in the process that Stumptown Coffee Roaster makes which is why they have one of the best coffee shops.

4. Bluestone Lane Coffee

Bluestone Lane is an Australian inspired coffee shop and café who also has made it their mission to provide a safe, fun and coffee filled place for the locals to escape. What is unique about this coffee shop is their mission to change the perception of coffee, not just to drink more coffee but to have every coffee drinker become a connoisseur of coffee.

5. Jack’s Stir Brew Coffee

Jack’s Stir Brew was founded on the deep love of coffee, family and community. While also serving high quality, organic coffee and vegan baked goods to their customers. Jack’s Stir Brew was the first coffee house in New York to exclusively serve organic coffee and has stated within their business mission to help pioneer from crop-to-cup by working with the farmers and purveyors that Jack’s sources their coffee from.

6. Southside Coffee

Southside Coffee is a one-stop for everything your heart desires, like good food and coffee! All great things had to start somewhere and this is where Southside Coffee got its start and is now thriving on the streets of Brooklyn serving the heart of New York.

I have really enjoyed tasting my way through some of these coffee shops! It always makes exploring around a city more fun! Cafe’s are beautiful and fun little slices of culture!
