On a recent trip to New York City, I decided to scope out many of the local coffee shops. Here are my favorite!
One of my favorite things to do when traveling is to find new, local places to enjoy my morning cup of coffee each day. I’ve been to New York City many times, but until recently had yet to really explore the coffee scene. Since I had several days to explore New York, I decided this time I was going to really delve into visiting as many coffee shops as I could throughout the city, and share some of my favorites with you!
As much as I appreciate Starbucks being on every corner…and getting me through many mornings at home…it just seems silly to not branch out to local shops when traveling. I’ve judged my favorite New York Coffee Shops on two things. #1, the taste of their coffee…or in my case, their lattes. #2, the atmosphere of the coffee shop.
I like my coffee to be rich, smooth and slightly bold. When I drink a latte, I want the flavor of the coffee to be the dominating taste and not to feel like I’m just drinking coffee flavored warm milk. As far as atmosphere, I don’t want to feel rushed ordering and/or drinking my coffee. I want the other patrons experiencing the coffee shop to be diverse and the overall feeling of the place to be as much of an experience as drinking the actual coffee.
