    Last week Coffee Common came to NYC and set up a pop-up store in Chelsea. I had been wanting to go all week, but between client meetings, phone calls, a few thousand {ok, like 10} emails, and the occasional edit I was unable to get there until Saturday night. \\ More about Saturday day in the next post \\. We got there just after sun down and had quite a time finding the entrance. We walked around the two sides of the building a few times, before we realized someone had just placed their luggage against the entrance, which had lead us to believe that entrance was locked. It wasn’t. The entire place was floor to ceiling windows and I’m sure we looked rather ridiculous looking up and down the windows to see if any of them were actually doors, but we finally made our way in and hung our coats on the complimentary coat rack. It’s $5 for a ceramic mug and you can taste as many coffees, as many times as you’d like. We were both under the impression that there would at least be a station to buy a full cup, with milk & sugar to your liking, for Yanessa since she doesn’t drink black coffee. There wasn’t. Neither was there anywhere to sit, so she ended up standing for about 45 minutes until I was done. The roasters that were highlighted were, in no particular order, Ritual Roasters, Counter Culture, Intelligentsia, Heart Roasters {my personal choice of the tasting}, & Gimme!. Would’ve loved to have some of my coffee buds here to share the night with. Maybe next time!
