Like many fellow reisdents of Manhattan, I think caffiene is actually what powers the city. I don't think I am a coffee snob, but I have little patience for the average cup of burned coffee truck coffee. I usually make my coffee at home. I have been very happy with buying beans form Fresh Direct. It's not Illy Cafe, but you can't beat the quality for the price. Any other suggestions for buying beans? Preferably on UES? Never been to Oren's, is it any good?
