Empire Coffee & Tea Company
Time Out says
At its flagship location near Port Authority, this longtime importer and seller has a selection of coffees ranging from flavored to organic to decaf and roast choices like French, Vienna and American. Pick up a half or full pound (and varying grind options) of Colombian Supremo or Jamaica Blue Mountain or Java Superior, or percolate over its Empire Blends line, dripping with names like the New York Hell’s Kitchen (a blend of international beans in homage to the shop’s neighborhood) and Starry Night (a dark Columbian Vienna Roast and Italian Roast combo). If you’re schlepping from Hoboken, NJ, you can get your beans and get them grounded at its Bloomfield Street site.
