This coffee shop now has three uptown locations - there’s also one in Inwood and another inside the GWB Bus Terminal - but the tiny original on residential Pinehurst Avenue is great if you’re planning an afternoon in Fort Tryon Park. All of the coffee here comes from small growers in Ethiopia, where the husband-and-wife owners first met. The beans are then roasted in small batches and sold by the pound or ground for use in the shop’s espressos, macchiatos, and cold brew. If you feel like taking a snack with you to go lay in the sun, grab one of their injera wraps, filled with spicy lentils and veggies.
