Every barista plays their part in perfecting each cappuccino resulting in an intense, New Orleans-style iced coffee, which includes touches of maple syrup and chicory.
Cutting Edge Equipment
Their use of cutting edge equipment with the combination of the best beans you can find is what sets them apart from the rest. Using refractors to measure total dissolved solids and even using software to show the exact extraction percentages. Who said science couldn’t be fun, right?
Gluten Free & Vegan Options
Their coffee menu just about hits every nail on the head from Cortados to Espressos. Not to mention, their bakery, which also houses gluten free and vegan options, is absolutely to die for.
By treating their customers just like family, they strive to make everyone that walks in their door, and also the staff, feel welcomed and appreciated.
Just the feel of this place will surely make you want to become one of their cherished regulars. The inside décor has an old world charm meets art machinery feel dating back to the 1800s.
The first shop is located at 10-93 Jackson Ave in Long Island City. In addition to this shop, two others can be found in Williamsburg and Center Blvd, also located in Long Island City.
Do yourself a favor and check this place out. This is the perfect, authentic espresso bar that you need in your life.
