Rock-star barista Sam Penix opens his second location, a high-concept brew bar in Soho. As at the original, Penix will offer Counter Culture beans, Downtown Cookie Co. treats and Ceci-Cela croissants. But this 15-seat spot—kitted out with oak floors, vintage steel cabinets and walnut bench seating—is a sharp departure from most New York cafés. Penix did away with everyday coffeeshop comforts, including overhead menus and "condiment" stations of sugar and milk. Chat up the barista to find out what brew method (options include espresso, AeroPress and Chemex) is best for your choice of beans. Low countertops offer both coffee geeks and neophytes a view of all the hot-brew action.
