Between Coffee Project’s four locations (East Village, Fort Greene, Chelsea, and Long Island City), you’re never too far from one of my favorite cups of coffee in the city. Sum Ngai and Kaleena Teoh are both Malaysian and co-owners of Coffee Project NY, and also opened a roastery and the first-ever Specialty Coffee Association Premier Training Campus to empower baristas with informational in-person and online workshops and classes. Definitely order the smooth nitro cold brew and try the avocado tomato feta croissant sandwich if you’re hungry. At their original EV location, there’s plenty of outdoor seating, or take it to go Monday to Friday 7:30am-5pm, Saturday 8am-5:30pm and Sunday 8am-5pm.
