Interesting article on the rapidly changing coffee scene here in NYC.

Just curious why the following are not considered as local specialty coffee roasters in NYC:

In no particular order and perhaps missing a few:

Dallis Coffee - I believe 9th St. Espresso initally started with their espresso but I may be mistaken.
Gillies Coffee
Gorilla Coffee
Orens Daily Roast - Click Here (www.cupofexcellence.org)
Coffee Labs Roasters - Runner up Micro Roaster of the Year 2007

Posted May 29, 2008 link

This is tricky to answer: mea culpa on the first four, is my short answer. In that article, I was largely focusing on (and I won't use that th--- w--- term I so dislike) the newest generation of roasters which seem (to my mind) to be approaching business a little differently than some of the long-established companies like Gillies and Dallis, though I realize my omission was a slight, and it was not intentional.

Coffee Labs you can't get me on, though. Those kids are up in Tarrytown!

I recently returned from a NYC visit and had to stop by Ninth Street to see what the Stumptown buzz is all about.  I am sure that credit should be divided between the barista pulling the shots as well as the blend but I have to say this was the best espresso I have tasted in some time.
I started with a double espresso and in the 10 seconds it took me to finish that I circled back and got back in line to have a macchiato.  Both were exceptional.

aaahh, you forgot to mention my favorite coffee place in Gotham: The "Hungarian Pastry Shop" across the street from the cathedral St John the Divine. It's in the northern region of Manhattan close to Columbia University, but nevertheless older than Starbucks and true by the right mixture of intellects, sumptious pastries, delicious coffee and year-round outdoor seating. You order at the counter and give your name, then one of the counter girls comes out with your latte yelling your name ("Mustafa! Wilbur! Koko! Sindbad! Friedrich! Xuen! The person with the initial Q!"), and then once ready to leave, you simply go back inside and pay. But you can sit for hours, debate Nietzsche, nano technology, or nail polish. It is SO Manhattan, because it is not.
