    Coffee is over-roasted; Porto Rico has been far surpassed by third-wave shops like Third Rail or Everyman.

    Body sized bags of beans line the floor of this Greenwich Village gem. The equivalent of stepping into an old, classic Italian deli, you just know you're about to get the good stuff. Read more

    Best spot to get coffee in the morning. There's a little register in the back to pick up cups of coffee. Also cheaper than most spots in the area but much better quality wise.

    High quality (but cheap) coffee without any of the pretentiousness that can come with third wave coffee shops. Go straight to the back if you're not there to buy beans. Also, they do take cards!

    This place smells magical, and the staff is helpful if you need guidance on what to select. I've had a lot of success picking solid coffees in the $12-16/lb range. High end places still win the $20+

    Start your Village stroll here with the cash only coffee and espresso in the back. It's probably the cheapest high-quality coffee that you'll find in all of Manhattan too.

    The top-shelf ($9/lb) beans are mostly worth it, but vary wildly in quality. Get a bunch of quarter pounds until you hit a variety you like. (Organic Peruvian has been a winner for me lately)
