Been Parking your Slopes or Cobbling your Hills with little clue as to where best to sit and sip? The food-filled, cute-shop-lined streets of South Brooklyn are full of coffee purveyors eager for a share of your cup. But among them are some truly special spaces whose clean sunny spaces and no-nonsense approach to preparing excellent coffee are joined by exemplary staff, extra-tasty goods, or simply just the right vibe. We round up a few of the finest (notably mourning the indefinite loss of Stumptown's brilliant manual brew tasting bar in Red Hook, now on hiatus due to having too much coffee to store anywhere else) and encourage you to air up the bike tires for a tour.
'Dallis Bros. Coffee' on Serious Eats
Though it may already feel like your lifestyle, coffee is far more than just a drink—it's a potential social activity! We've rounded up some great coffee events coming up this month in New York City, where you're sure to learn as much as you taste. Or, well, just taste. No one will judge.
This weekend, some of New York City's most passionate baristas will join leagues of others in the Northeastern US for the Northeast Regional Barista Championship, the first ever hosted within the five boroughs.
Beautiful coffees roasted more and more thoughtfully, our first local barista competition, a geek-paradise of a training facility, and fabulous prizes...Is there anything Dallis Bros. Coffee doesn't have up their sleeve?
