George Howell’s Alchemy Espresso at The Coffee Pedaler (New Haven).
Tim Wendelboe’s Caballero Espresso at Búdin. One of the most delicate and well-balanced shots I’ve had in months.
Alphabet City Blend at Ninth Street Espresso (Chelsea Market).
Stumptown Hairbender at Brooklyn Label. This place started serving Stumptown before everyone else in New York, long before they opened an east coast roastery.
Stumptown Hairbender at Freehold. A beautiful new space in the shadow of the Williamsburg Bridge.
