Macchiato is the best coffee store in NY. It is a bold statement to make, but I am making it.
If you are unfamiliar with it, it is a Europeanish coffee store that now has 2 locations in NY. One on 44th between Lex and 3rd (right next to my office, hence how I discovered it) and the other on 52nd and 5th.
I have only had one thing here and that is the Iced Coffee. I think testing an Iced Coffee is a great way to test how good a coffee place is. The Iced Coffee here is perfect, you don't need any artifical flavors like vanilla or caramel, alone, this coffee is perfect. It is smooth, not burnt and quite tasty.
I have a new morning tradition and that is Macchiato! I do miss Joe my coffee cart guy on 6th Ave, but I think I will grow to love the hipsters serving at Macchiato.
Actually, no, I will never love hipsters. I will just love the coffee they serve.
