New York Coffee News
So as I sit here in Brooklyn, stewing in envy as all my friends participate in the Slow Food Nation Event. Of course, I would love to be there as well, but here in New York I’ve decided to make my own fun!
To tie in with Slow Food, yesterday for breakfast I stopped by Abraço Espresso with Neil & Jordan, Abraço (and TempTamp) star employee, for a hangover-cure breakfast. Never dissapointing, Liz busted out delicious brussel sprouts and wild cherry tomatoes. Not pictured was the fresh ricotta french toast, which was eaten too quickly to capture.
I also went to the brand spanking new Intelligentsia Training Lab in SoHo. It’s the first dedicated training space to hit New York City and I am totally psyched! Amber and Steve hosted a public cupping, and then we hung out and documented the soon to be world-famous space. Check it out:
That space is sweet, and they’re planning on having a grand opening event at the end of next month. I can’t wait.
In other news, Ninth Street Espresso was kind enough to explain the drinks on their menu to ny1, a local news channel here in New York. It’s actually quite a helpful video for coffee-house newbies, so give it a look as well.
Finally, we’re getting geared up for our cupping tomorrow! It should be a lot of fun – and unless I get any cancellations, the event is full.
I’ll probably do Slow Food next year, but for now, I’m happy!
