City Coffee Guide - New York City

Your not a true New Yorker unless you have an obsession with coffee, its in the DNA.


New York City is defiantly not short of coffee shops, if anything you will go crazy just trying to think of one too visit. But having a coffee shop around the corner doesn’t always mean its going to be good.


Below is where you need to visit to get New York City’s best coffee.

Proof Coffee Roasters – 335 East 27th St New York City

They don’t get rave reviews for no reason. Proof coffee has been pulling out amazing tasting coffee ever since they opened. Jeff the owner was formerly in the tech industry and decided to open Proof. Good move if you ask us.

City of Saints

City of Saints started roasting coffee out of Pulley Collective, a co working space for small boutique roasters. Not long after City of Saints were small no more, with the opening of their roastery in Bushwich Brooklyn. They now have their own 70 kg roaster which is visible in the cafe. Must visit for all coffee snobs.

Sey Coffee

When you walk into Sly Coffee in Bushwich you know the fit out has been designed to impress. Raw and whitewash walls draw you to have a sneaky look. All top of the line coffee equipment is showcased at the brew bar. We suggest to have a few here and enjoy the space.

A lot of people wouldn’t know but Oslo Coffee Roasters have been around since 2002. From their first site in Brooklyn they now have 3 locations and we hear their Yorkville location is the favorite place for coffee from the VICE team.

Toby’s Estate

Popular Australian roaster Toby’s Estate opened up in Brooklyn to much fan fare and with good reason. They have become a force in the NYC coffee scene since day dot, since their first cafe they have opened up another 5. We recommend to visit and have a flat white and experience what all the fuss is about.
