    A small, perfect coffee shop founded by a former Starbucks employee. Watch the coffee beans soar over your head and into your cup with their unique brewing method. And they can make any coffee iced!

    Great priced coffee beans, love their Brazilian and the Guatemalan beans. Probably the coolest way to see your coffee made when the beans fly overhead in tubes into the coffee maker.

    They fresh brew every cup of coffee including an iced cup. They chill it in a coil iced bath which holds the flavor of the beans. Best iced cuppa on the block.

    It's fun to watch your beans get sucked up through the pneumatic tubes when you place an order. The spectacle alone is worth the visit. The coffee is just above standard fare, though.

    Watch your coffee beans travel across the room while u wait! Also the hot caramel (instead of hot chocolate) was so smooth and creamy!! Loved it!

    Get a small supercharged (it's basically coffee brewed with 40% more beans), an almond croissant and proceed outside to play with the English Bulldogs.

    You substitute any bean for the house blend. The house blend is great but trying a bean in store is a great way to understand the ideal flavor profile when you brew at home.

    The Sulawesi is rich and full-bodied goodness. Stick around and watch the beans transfer via pneumatic tubes. So fun.

    Sit and stay a while while enjoying their kick-ass coffees and watch the javabot machines (complete with tubes!) do their magic.

    They brew every cup of coffee as you place your order. And grind beans for your specific coffee maker. Simply wonderful.

    Watching the huge bean dispensers get refilled via this automated tube system is amazing.

    Atmosphere is a bit colder than at Brooklyn Taco (in Essex Market) but they are also nice coffee experts

    Order the Harrar, A medium bodied with blueberry undertones. I am more of a full bodied guy and I am not really into "fruity" coffee but This coffee was perfect. Piping hot, smooth and delicate.

    Small place, but there's a pair of power outlets next to every seat, so your phone or laptop can recharge while you do the same.

    Ask to pour the Vanilla Sugar in the tin cup before they brew you an iced coffee; guaranteed delicious!

    Turtle says to Snail: "Hey, Mayor De Blasio lowered the speed limit to 30 mph." Snail replies: "I know. I already got a ticket." While I drink coffee, I tell jokes and they don't throw me out!
  • Alexandra L.
    This place is worth the visit mostly for their super cool coffee dispensing machine. The coffee itself though is average and a bit overpriced.

    Get their chocolate chip cookies. When they are fresh out of the oven, it's a thing of beauty.

    Be sure to tip the servers! They're not allowed to have tip jars, but they are allowed to accept tips. Don't be a cheap ass!

    Painfully slow service with servers that are rude and completely unaware of their customers. But the coffee is so freaking good that it's worth enduring.
