While this Portland-based brew master may feel a bit Hipster-esq in the Ace Hotel, it definitely leaves us “stumped” on how they brew the perfect cup of coffee. While famous for their elaborate foam decorations on their hot espresso drinks, their iced option is the perfect sweet treat this season. You can also buy the cold coffee in rustic bottles to crack open at the park while soaking up the sun with friends.
Doing some vintage shopping in the East Village? This little hidden treasure is the perfect option if you are looking for the best espresso that’s made just for you! Try a little espresso over ice with a dash of soymilk and raw sugar for the best little faux-latte. Just don’t forget to grab a delicious rose almond cookie on your way out!
4. Kaffe 1668
Looking for a spot that has a large selection of iced coffee blends from places like Kenya, Ethiopia, and Costa Rica? Kaffe is your go-to java hut. Not only is their coffee delicious and made to order, but they import their milk from Upstate! It’s like your own New York landmark in the palm of your hand!
