It's easy to say that coffee drives my industry a lot, hell it drives a lot of industries nowadays which is probably better than speed driving the '80s. My biggest personal issue with coffee had always been finding something I liked and could order without looking like an amateur. Luckily nowadays I finally found a style of coffee I enjoy, Dapper.
What a dapper little coffee that is. So dapper in fact that for awhile I had started collecting the cups from a Korean chain, Paris Baguette, and started adding little faces on them.
It was quite a glorious time, and then things went south real fast.
Never trust the cute ones as they say.
I'll still grab a cappuccino from Paris Baguette every once in awhile when I forget my coffee (really, when I wake up way too late and have to run for the train) but recently there's been a new haunt on my block, Gregory's. If you're visiting in NYC and can't find a good hole in a wall cafe, Gregory's is a good chain to hit up. Little hipsterish but that's okay.
