Ooo--Newkirk Plaza's just one subway stop way!  Thanks so much, I'll hit Coffee Mob this weekend.

 

Did you ever make it in? They're still my favorite coffee shop in the city. Buck's been doing more blends lately, while my favorites are the single origins. He does blends because most of his customers buy milk drinks, and he can get a better balance for those with a blend. 

 

The blends still make a pretty great espresso. Usually he does just two coffees ... a Central American and and East African. He has personal relationships with most of the farmers. 

 

These coffees have really spoiled me. In the last year I've had decent espressos at Café Grumpy and 3rd Rail, but everywhere else in Manhattan has ranged from passable to disaster.

 

Edited to add: if you're buying beans, he sells them all as single origins.
