it was a short visit this time around but there was still time to have coffee thrice!
coffee and the times. espresso at prodigy coffee. Coffee roasted by George Howell Coffee Company. My tasting notes: muted brightness, buttery and light. enjoyable.
neat vibe, very friendly baristas, nice light. this was a good visit.
everyman espresso. despite the barista’s expression at the moment I shot the photo, they were great and there was nothing disgusting about the experience. they are located in a cool spot near union square in the lobby of the classic stage company.
espresso – espresso toscano by counter culture coffee. tasting notes: bright, not much sweetness, light fruit aftertaste, hints of vanilla and peach
macchiato. but it was the drip that Diane ordered that stole the show. the baroida papua new guinea from counter culture
was amazing. delightfully fruity. this year’s real new york bagel was had at Absolute Bagels – an everything with nova lox and cream cheese. I had to go to “recalibrate” my bagel sensors as Israel would sayand the next day, back to the always-great third rail coffee – serving stumptown. this is a macchiato but my espresso was light and citrusy
friendly baristas at third rail coffee
