cup of joe

If in New York City you are trying to find an alternative to Starbucks, I highly recommend Joe, where they consider coffee an art form (and a responsibility). Even decaf, my bean of choice, is delicious.

If you would like to improve your own coffee technique, Joe offers classes on subjects like Espresso Fundamentals and Milk Steaming. Locations at Waverly Place, E. 13th Street, W. 23rd, and Grand Central Terminal.

PLUS Joe has a compost and recycling program at all the locations. Every bit of coffee and organic material is composted and all of the containers are recycled. Bring your own to-go mug and get 10 cents off every drink!
