Celebrating National Coffee Day (October 1st)
Most of NYC runs on coffee, so National Coffee Day is a day each and every one of us should celebrate. Whether this means stopping by your go-to cafe for a cup of joe, buying tickets for the upcoming New York Coffee Festival, or treating yourself to a subscription coffee service, we’ve got the complete lineup of ways to enjoy yourself today!
Stop By A New-To-You Coffee Shop
New York is home to what feels like coffeeshops on every corner (Starbucks, we’re looking at you!) While your usual go-to may be stopping by your local Dunkin’ for a large black coffee, we encourage you to branch out today and try a new-to-you coffee shop! There’s so many amazing ones, it’s hard to even begin narrowing them down. However, a few standouts in the NYC coffee world are:
–Bibble & Sip. This spot is perfect if you live or work on the Westside, specifically Midtown West near the Theater District. There’s always a line (and rightly so, their coffee is phenomenal!), but it moves quickly. The unique drink to try here is their Lavender Latte. Bonus points: homemade cream puffs come out of the oven everyday at noon, sharp! So consider timing your visit around that.
–Ground Central. Located in Midtown East, you’ll want to both order the coffee AND drink the coffee here. The brews are fantastic, and so is the vibe. You’ll be able to relax in their library themed space, enjoying couches and overstuffed leather chairs (as well as high top tables up front which are perfect for plugging your laptop in and getting a little work banged out!) This spot is ideal for Glenwood residents living at The Bristol and The Bamford. We have a feeling it will quickly become your new favorite spot!
–Irving Farm Coffee Roasters. There’s several locations of Irving Farms around the city, but the Upper East Side location is a fan favorite among Uptowners. Beans are roasted right in New York state, and the spacious cafe gives plenty of room to read a paper or even meet with your book club, featuring minimal industrial vibes. Best of all, residents of The Marlowe are just a block away!
The Marlowe – Upscale East Side ApartmentsThe Marlowe is a great location for luxury living in the heart of the Upper East Side. With 4 unique units per floor, make your next home in one of these exclusive apartments with airy rooms and 9-foot ceilings. Book a tour today!
New York Coffee Festival
The New York Coffee Festival is taking place this year on October 12th through 14th right in the heart of NYC, just a short distance away from the Westside residencies Emerald Green and Crystal Green! If you’re a coffee aficionado or industry insider, this is the perfect way to celebrate National Coffee Day because you will be privy to all the latest and greatest buzz!! The festival will include countless coffee tastings, coffee themed music, art, food vendors, plenty of latte art demonstrations, and so much more. Snag your tickets in advance from their website! We just might suggest switching to decaf by the time afternoon rolls around.
Coffee Subscription Service
How does one go about keeping the buzz of National Coffee Day going the other 364 days of the year? Why, by indulging in a coffee subscription service, of course! There’s countless services available (a quick Google search will tell you as much!), but we suggest you stay local on this one and go with a NYC tried and true: the Brooklyn Roasting Company. In case you couldn’t guess, they roast their beans right across the river in Brooklyn (keeping it fresh!) You can grab a yearly subscription to their coffee for only $250, which gets you two shipments a month of their current most popular bean (meaning you get to try a wide variety over the year)! Enough to keep even the most coffee obsessed New Yorker well stocked up! Also, this would make a fantastic gift for any coffee loving person in your life.
