Deconstructed latte at Coffee Project New York
Paul Wagtouicz Deconstructed latte at Coffee Project New York

Time Out says

Chi-Sum Ngai grew up serving traditional condensed-milk–splashed coffee at her parents' cafe in Malaysia before studying the dark stuff at Portland's American Barista and Coffee School. Though trained on the West Coast, Ngai imbues the earth-toned, studio-size café she runs with partner Kaleena Teoh with Northeast touches: The drip coffee cups are from New Haven and beans are sourced from Red Hook's Gotham Coffee Roasters. The drinks menu includes drip and espresso staples, a nitrogen cold brew on tap and a rotating cast of progressive pour "projects." Project 1 is a deconstructed latte flight separating lightly pasteurized milk, espresso and a composed latte into three stemmed glasses to highlight each individual flavor. Those with a minute to spare can swing by the slow bar, where Ngai offers more time-consuming cups via Chemex or siphon. Beyond coffee, find chai teas, hot chocolate and Korean misugaru (an imported rice-grain drink), as well as scones from the Union Square Greenmarket and cheesecake from College Point's La Cheesecake.
