The Daily Brew: Bluestone Lane - Niccolo
In my opinion Bluestone Lane has the best espresso in New York. I love it. I go out of my way to get it- it's that good. On National Coffee Day I followed Bluestone Lane down to Nolita for free coffee in honor of NCD. They set up shop in Kit and Ace. I went with a friend and we fell in love with the shop. Everything was soft and had a clean-modern aesthetic. Also, loved that they did tailoring on-site for free! I had been meaning to purchase beans from Bluestone Lane to try brewing them at home, so I picked up a mini bag from the trike. Turns out they just started making small bags of beans. Win for me. ;)
Here are some pics from National Coffee Day.
Here is the coffee I brewed I brewed from home. I liked the idea of buying a small bag of coffee beans. The reason being that I like switching up my coffee beans every two weeks or so. Brewing the same beans over an over gets a bit boring. This bag of Niccolo lasted just the right amount of time. The coffee was good, but not nearly as good as their espresso in house. It might be time to invest in an espresso machine. eeek!
