How was the coffee? :-)

Good, to be honest, not a picky coffee drinker, more there for ambiance. They take their coffee very seriously though, this is what's there before you enter the seating area.

Great!

Where?

Brooklyn. You'll overhear a whole medley of foreign languages and there are cute babies and dogs.

I like the big roaster. They must filter it so the neighborhood does not smell (we've had complaints in Dallas about the roasting in certain neighborhoods - I'm particular about coffee and get my beans shipped from either Klatch in SoCal or George Howell near Boston about once per month. It makes a big difference ... to me.

Never heard of or tried those. I'm a big fan of Peet's coffee, good body and balance in their dark roast and not too acidic.

If you like to taste coffee other than heavy and dark yet good, try

I prefer the lighter roasts as they tend to be more complex - Kenyan, Ehtiopian for berries and dark fruits, lemon, grapefruit notes, etc, and then if you like milk chocolate, look at South American beans

Thanks! I may have to give some a try.

A great grinder makes a big difference, too. What makes beans even better is that they arrive, having been roasted 2-3 days before you receive them. Typically, beans are best within 7-24 days of roasting. CO2 is their enemy - so I wrap the package tight after opening and tightening the package with rubber bands to make them last longer (Have a bag of Whole Foods Rubber Bands - they only item that is free beyond a brown bag, ice, and samples).

Ahh, so this is where Starbucks employees go to hang out after hours.. Nice.  

Not a coxfert but know good coffee when I drink it. Couple of years ago I ran into someone who got their roasted beans from Tonx on the West Coast. It was a monthly subscription thing.

I'm a big coffee house fan.  Family owned places with WIFI that let you linker are good. I think Starbucks intentionally makes cold environments with loud music to discourage hanging around. (Yet college students adapt).
