This new app lets you get $1 coffee at NYC shops

Rebecca Fontana

If coffee is your drug of choice, we have good news. Newly launched App of Joe adds coffee to the list of things you can get in New York for $1. We don’t mean garbage coffee from street carts; you can order drinks from 20 locally owned Lower East Side and East Village coffee shops, including Blue Moon Café, Juicy Lucy Bar and B-Cup Café.

The free app shows you eligible shops nearby, then you preorder, pay through the app and go directly to the head of the line. You can choose from basic $1 drinks—that’s coffee and tea, not #basic Pumpkin Spice Lattes—or fancy macchiatos, cappuccinos and more for $2. It also lets you customize your drink (iced coffee is $1.60 and an extra shot is 30 cents more) and shows you food choices.

Between this app, available on iOS and Android, and the options for unlimited coffee in NYC, our cup runneth over.
