Coffee Talk

ABC's Nightline did a nice little story on coffee culture in New York City. Watch:

This is all very much along the lines of what I wrote about New York City coffee a few months ago. The focus, at least there, has clearly shifted to espresso.

Now, that certainly doesn't mean that all regular coffee is created equal. Far from it. There are magnitudes of difference between the stuff you get at Starbucks or McDonalds and the stuff you get at a place that really takes it seriously. As a person who still prefers a high quality cup of coffee to a fancy espresso drink, I hope the "indie roasters" don't lose sight of this.
