went to the NYC Stumptown this past weekend. Best coffee I've had outside of Italy so far, simply awesome.

KONA.

So smooth and rich it's like a cross between hot chocolate and coffee. I find Blue Mountain poor in comparison, but have read some less-than-sterling analyses of the Blue Mountain brand.

I sure like the Peet's Holiday blend in the bright red foil container. I'm a fan.

Better. Is the collar the hardened penis sheath of the Kraken? If so, $35 is a deal.

Stumptown makes some of the best coffee in NYC. I'd rank them at the top alongside 9th Street Espresso and Gimme.

I agree.

But I have come to really hate the beard or mustaches done child molester style requirement for baristas. And the tweed. I imagine this is what a post-concert gathering for fans of The Killers would look like.

That is why we do mail order. Also we don't live in Portland or NYC.

It's just a really thick filter.

It depends on what location. Some of the baristas are pricks!

Gimme down in nolita they are pretty nice. That is a real scene, with all the cool folks sitting on the bench out front. The Lorimer location is a little bit shady on that block... but that is because i don't really "do" Williamsburg anymore (too old). The 9th street near Tompkins they think they are so cool and hip.... with the mustache, etc. The main 9th street out near Ave C they act like they are working the door at Bungalow 8 (back in the day). For real... just gimme my cappuccino and chill out. IT IS NOT THAT SERIOUS

I think my fave is that Grumpy place in Chelsea. Or Gimme.

Keep in mind that i only buy a cappuccino (double shot, size small).

Actually, i used to buy that Ethiopian coffee at Gimme for like $18 and now i get the same stuff at Porto Rico for $8 per pound.

FWIW... that Joe coffee in grand central is ok. And i get Think coffee a lot near school (but that is mediocre at best). I just cannot stand Starbucks, so i will settle for pretty much anything else.

I have only had Stumptown at Momofuku milk bar (they serve it there)... so i don't have a good frame of reference. Is there a Stumptown cafe in Manhattan?


ok... i wrote too much. sorry

Vanilla latte every morning. 2 shots of espresso, an appropriate volume of steamed milk, and a pump or two of Torani vanilla syrup. AMAZING. I bought a Nespresso over break and absolutely love it. No more Starbucks! http://www1.nespresso.com/citiz/
