Great Coffee in Midtown

One last question for everyone... Are there any really good coffee shops in midtown or central park area? It would be great if they roast and sell beans as I am always looking for good beans for home.

Check out Stumptown (29th and Broadway, closer to Penn Station), Culture Espresso (38th and 6th, near Times Square), Joe the Art of Coffee (inside Grand Central and also on the UWS at 85th and Columbus), Zibetto (mostly espresso, closer to Central Park, on 6th Ave between 56th/57th). Momofuku Milk Bar Midtown also brews Stumptown (drip and cold brew, no espresso).

It really depends where you are -- Midtown is big.

We stopped by Zibetto on Sunday. My wife had cioccolata caulda and I had a cafe macchiato. The ciccolata caulda was very rich and strong. The better of the two. The macchiato was great with a perfectly made shot of espresso. Definitely worth a stop.

This morning I stopped by Oren's Daily Roast on the way to the barber. The coffee of the day was Columbian and was quite good. A step up from the countless Starbucks in the area.
