Blue bottle coffee - 450 east 15TH STREET

Named for a 17th century European coffee house, the Blue Bottle is nothing if not traditional when it comes to coffee. These days, the company has expanded into a network of roasters, cafés, carts, and kiosks. Despite their success, each location still roasts in vintage machines and uses eco-friendly materials, serving the brew within 48 hours of roasting. Set up on two floors of the Milk Building’s former loading dock, the first floor offers no-nonsense coffee – expect espresso, macchiatos, cappuccino, caffe lattes and mochas, brewed tea, and Blue Bottle roast blends. Siphon coffee makers and Nel flannel filters prep the coffee drinks, and pastries are locally sourced from Amy’s Bakery. With a flair for the old-fashioned, an eye for organic, pesticide free ingredients, and the passion needed to provide unadulterated coffee experiences to customers, The Blue Bottle stands out as a true-blue haven for caffeine aficionados.
