Most coffee geeks scorn chains, but in the past few months, New York’s nine Dean & DeLuca cafés have earned some cred. All stores have started exclusively carrying the top-quality java from indie favorite Counter Culture. Previously, the North Carolina roaster’s beans were sold only at a handful of city coffeeshops. Dean & DeLuca has also tapped into Counter Culture’s training center, which means that staffers can pull espresso shots and pour latte art as skillfully as any Williamsburg barista.
