After several trips to NYC recently, I think it's amazing what is happening to the NYC coffee scene. What used to be a wasteland of Starbucks and old-school (read-old Italian espresso), has turned into the Third Wave flooding the city with pioneers like Jonathin Rubenstein (JOE), Ken Nye (9th Street), Caroline Bell and Chris Trimbrell (Grumpy) paving the way for Gimme and Cafe El Beit and others. How exciting, to be able to go to one of the most exciting cities in the world, and drink the most exciting coffees in the world!

Yea being Brooklyn born and bred, I thought I knew coffee cause of the corner stores Athenas cups of joe and old Italian espresso spots. I knew NOTHING til I got to go to ABC in Portland. After going there, I learned of Gorilla Coffee in Park Slope, Brooklyn. My mom and I looked at each other like "There's something to this!"
