NY: Blue Bottle Manual

Neighboruhood: Williamsburg

Borough Brooklyn, New York

 Since breaking into the neighbourhood in 2010, the West coast staple brings a la minute grinding to each cup. Personalized care goes into every cup - but what impresses coffee geeks alike is the offering of coffee week to week.
Seasonal single-origins are available through drip and espresso on the re-mastered 1950 Faema Urania - one of the few manual machines within NYC.
The Vibe within the cafe is excitement, and curosity. As my friends have requested to visit this location - I take the opportunity to have something other than mainstay Hayes Valley Espresso Blend.

The Basics:
Machine: Faema Urania (Hand Pull)
Grinder: Mazzer Robur
Beans: Zemoch
Origin: Guatemala
Roasters: Blue Bottle
Located: Williamsburg/BK

Preparation:
Dose: 25g
Timing: Baristas intution
Produces: 1.5 oz (typical tight NYC shot)

Verdict: Brightness rings true upon inhalation, with a dark chocolate body - subtle hints tobacco, and a nice finish.

Great way to start my NYC Espresso Advenutres.

Always count on BB to produce consist shots.
Don't forgot about their weekly public cupping every Thursday  at noon - too bad we were delayed with our flight.... otherwise the long table that faces the 5 Kyoto cold brews would allow me to taste some yummy BB goodness.
