Terremoto Coffee — 328 West 15th Street

Coffee is an essential ingredient in the everyday lives of many New Yorkers, and Richard Agudelo, the owner of Terremoto, takes this very seriously. He only provides single-origin, best-trade coffee, which means that he knows exactly where his coffee is coming from. “We know our farmers, milk purveyors, water suppliers, everything,” says Agudelo. “We make sure that it is locally-sourced as much as possible — everything down to our grill.” Terremoto, which means earthquake in Spanish, is named in part after Agudelo. He spent his summers as a child staying with his uncles in Colombia, who often called out in Spanish, “Look, the earthquake arrives” upon his entrance. “I was a handful,” Agudelo admitted, adding, “Our caffeinated drinks will wake you up, just like an earthquake.”
