Caffe Vita
Lower East Side
The Seattle coffee company—a direct-trade fixture on the Washington coffee scene since 1995—opens a microroastery on the Lower East Side. The takeout shop is tricked out with an early 1900s Gothot roaster, vintage La Marzocco GS3 espresso machine and Japanese Oji slow-drippers for cold brews. Pichet Ong will provide the pastries.

In a city where everywhere but street cars will charge you $7 plus for a freaking cofee, Caffe Vita stands out, not because it's cheap (they also charge a million dollars), but because it is absolutely delicious. I am an avid coffee drinker and have been sipping on all the hipster coffee shops for a while, but Vita is something else. Best Cappuccinos hands down, and their version of a Cortado is pretty awesome.

They also get fresh donuts delivered from Dough on the weekends if you're into that. Love the staff. Interesting music.
