The company focuses on single-origin beans. The company was originally based in Oakland, California but soon expanded to other areas. Blue Bottle expanded to several cafés at locations around San Francisco. Blue Bottle opened its first New York location in 2010, also opened in Tokyo’s Kiyosumi neighborhood last year 2014 🙂

I’m at Chelsea, Meatpacking District location – 450 W. 15th St. (b/t 10th Ave & 9th Ave) New York, NY 10014

I love my new coffeemaker from CHEMEX. It’s pure design 🙂

CHEMEX Since 1980

The Chemex Coffeemaker was invented in 1941 by Dr. Peter Schlumbohm PhD. Made simply from non-porous, borosilicate glass and fastened with a wood collar and tie, it brews coffee without imparting any flavors of its own. On permanent display at MOMA NY and other fine museums, it is truly a work of art. Read more

This mini Italian cafe is my favorite neighborhood place. I come here at least once a week or order delivery. It’s one of those great everyday neighborhood spots for breakfast or dinner. Fiat Cafe is small and cute, super cozy, and super reasonable. Seriously, for what you get, the prices are wayyy below anything else in my neighborhood. Which cute place in prime downtown has an $18 bottle of wine ??? Not to mention their great food cost you will only cost you $10! Fiat is owned by two French brothers who also own another French bistro in Soho. I highly recommend the brunch (Salmon Benedicts and Vegetable Paninis-I’m far from being a Vegetarian but this panini is so good!! I pretty much tried all the paninis on the menu (but this is the best one) and dinner is just as great to come here. They always have daily special menus with different entrees too. I recommend you come here with friends for casual dinner any night of the week and also lunch and weekend brunch.
