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:


The office, which will have an adjustable cupping table that turns back into the floor when you’re done! This is where we cupped.

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!
