I stopped by Trois Pommes cafe on 5th Avenue the other day on a recommendation here for Stumptown coffee. I'd read about the Stumptown guy coming to Brooklyn in NY Mag but never pursued giving the coffee a try until I got the rec here.
I drink drip coffee black and a like a medium bodied flavorful roast. This was wonderful! I drank the whole cup, which is rare for me because I lose interest once coffee becomes tepid. I can't wait to get to 5th Avenue to get another cup. I don't think this is a case of the emperor's new clothes, because I NEVER understood the popularity of Starbucks (and I used to live in Seattle.) This is good stuff. Thanks for the recommendation!
