7 x Coffee in New York

As you know, I love coffee. That's why I've been trying different coffee places over the last two weeks here in New York. I've asked everyone I know in the city where I should go for the best coffee, and they gave me some addresses. Some of them are franchises and some are independent cafés. They're all very different but they have one thing in common: damn good coffee.

Sidenote: my usual order is a flat white with non-dairy milk, like almond milk. They don't actually have "flat white" on most menus here, but all baristas know what it is so it's not a problem when ordering. (flat white is a double shot with lightly foamed milk, kind of like a strong cappuccino) 







LA COLOMBE COFFEE ROASTERS
Although some New Yorkers disagree with me on this one, I think La Colombe has amazing coffee. The almond flat white they do is the best one I've had so far. They also pay close attention to service and detail here, and I love their coffee cups (see the first pic of this post). You can find La Colombe in 8 different locations in New York.

BLUE STONE LANE COFFEE 
This is also a premium coffee shop franchise which has several locations in the city. Next to coffee they also do an Australian-inspired brunch at their cafés, located in Greenwich Village, the Upper East Side and the West Village. So far I've only tried their coffee (with soy milk) which was really good.

LUDLOW COFFEE SUPPLY
This independent coffee shop is a cool little place where you can sit down with your laptop and some coffee/snacks. They serve proper breakfast food like toasts and giant croissants (check out their Insta!) Every design detail is beautiful, from the cups to the menu board to the perfect little marble tables. I think this might be one of my all-around favourites!

CAFE INTEGRAL at AMERICAN TWO SHOT
The guys from Integral take their coffee seriously. The taste is just on point. They have one café and one café inside a concept store. Browsing around a nice shop with a perfect flat white in your hand? A killer combination.

ABRAÇO
This is not for the faint-hearted. At Abraço they serve some really strong coffee. No special dairy-free milks, no frills, no nonsense. This hidden café is for the die-hard coffee drinkers. They've also got a very attractive display of cakes; try their classic olive oil cake!

STUMPTOWN COFFEE ROASTERS
Although this coffee roaster isn't originally from New York, it's known as one of the best coffee shops in the city. There only have two cafés in the city, which kind of keeps things genuine and original. The café in Greenwich Village, right by NYU, has a very airy open-spaced interior which makes it one of the larger cafés I've come across.

EPISTROPHY 
And last but not least, the most romantic spot on this list. Epistrophy might not serve the best coffee in the city, but sitting down here feels like you're in someone's home. Very unrushed, cosy and charming! They serve drinks all throughout the day as well as food (their brunches and Italian dinners looks amazing!)

With so many great places in New York, there's absolutely no reason why you should ever step foot in a Starbucks. What's your favourite place in New York for coffee?
