Seven Grams Caffé

Seven Grams Caffé is an independent coffee shop with locations in Chelsea and Hudson Square. The name Seven Grams is an ode to the true Italian standard since a perfect espresso shot is made out of exactly 7 grams of coffee! Their baked goods are also made from scratch, in-house and freshly baked every day - and yes, they cater!

I ordered a cappuccino and loved every single sip. It was super well balanced and not too milky which happens often! A had a café au lait and said he really enjoyed it as well! Also - how picture perfect are their mugs and saucers?! If you're in this neck of the woods I'd strongly recommend a visit to this cozy café!

Starbucks Reserve Roastery

Starbucks has opened a high end resto/bar/café called the Reserve Roastery in New York. This immersive coffee experience is located right across the Chelsea Market.  It is massive inside, with three floors including a roastery, a bar, and café/restaurant style seating on two floors!

You can take your coffee to go, or order some food (pizzas, sandwiches, pastries) along with a coffee to enjoy there. I tried a cardamom latté which was amazing, and we also tried the Pantheon roast brewed through the siphon process. This process basically heats up water to boiling and then the coffee slowly brews, creating a very clean delicious cup of coffee, accentuating certain notes. We also sampled the same coffee brewed with the clover method. Both were delicious and I actually enjoyed them a lot without adding any cream or sugar!

You can read more about this on the NY Eater site. What a cool experience!!

I love Christmas so much! There's something about this season that just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy! I was so excited to decorate our new apartment this year, and wanted to share some of the pieces we bought to make it feel festive in here. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!
