A beautiful package from Coffee Supreme.
Truffles like jewelry, and coffee from great roasters across America. VB Chocolate Bar get in my life.
We love when new cafes open. So much so, that each summer for the last three years we’ve embarked upon a globe-girdling, feature series peeking in on brand new and under-construction cafes from cities across the planet. But summer’s not the only time a new cafe can open, and we’re not seasonalists. So what if you’ve […]
The Takashimaya department store in Futako-Tamagawa is a picture of elegance and refinement. The stately building stands tall, like a church of high quality fashion and designer goods, in which immaculately dressed floor staff are the oracles of new trends and apparel. The halls of this Takashimaya are where the faithful gather to shop, admire, […]
Kuala Lumpur is a city of malls. But I’ve got to be real with you: I hate malls. Which is how late last month I found myself walking down Jalang Riong, searching for a cafe hidden behind a fence of barbed wire. PULP certainly wasn’t what I was expecting to find in Kuala Lumpur. Actually, […]
The ever-expanding Montreal coffee scene took another big leap this week with the opening of Myriade Club Monaco, the third café from renowned owner Anthony Benda. After the original Myriade near Concordia University, and Myriade Mile End in the city’s “hippest” neighborhood, this new café is located right downtown on the busiest section of the busiest commercial street […]
Attending the press preview for the brand new Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room, located on the corner of Pike & Melrose in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, was a peculiarly full-circle experience. Starbucks was founded in 1971 just 9 blocks away from the new roastery, down the slope of Seattle’s cityscape towards the sea. Sprudge was founded […]
Walk into East Elevation in Melbourne’s suburb of Brunswick, and you’ll see the usual signs of a hip cafe: exposed brick, glass bottles instead of carafes for serving water, daily offerings scrawled onto a blackboard. But while the cafe formula may be easy to replicate, it’s often hard to perfect, with many places feeling more […]
Over the last several years in Australia the craft spirit movement has been gaining momentum, as locals take on centuries-old traditions to produce new and exciting spirits. In this vein, two passionate whiskey drinkers, Alasdair Malloch and James McKeown, have opened the first dedicated whiskey distillery in the Western Australian city of Perth, called Whipper […]
Entering Café St. Viateur, on a trendy corner of Queen West within menswear brand Frank & Oak’s flagship Toronto store, you understand almost instantly the world that you’ve entered. Through a glass and steel vestibule, over a floor woven with a black and white checkered pattern, you approach a copper and walnut bar to order your […]
As we ready ourselves for the holiday season, a barrage of holiday sales and deals will ambush us on a daily basis from now through Christmas. How do you shop for that special coffee-particular person in your life while supporting small business? We have the answer. Tortoise General Store on Abbot Kinney has been a longtime […]
The Lo-Hi neighborhood is an up-and-coming community on the north side of Denver, Colorado, and home to a rapidly changing landscape of new bars, restaurants, and coffee shops. There’s a neighborhood like this in every city in America right now, it seems; the kind of area where being in business for a couple of years […]
The light shines through from East and West facing doors illuminating through the new the DOC.U.MENT Coffee Bar and Gallery in Los Angeles. Simple long tables and school chairs fill the room. White walls that once were blank now hold the gallery’s first exhibit, FACE. When I first walked into this cafe in shortly after its opening a few […]
The Minneapolis coffee scene has two recent new additions, both from the same company–our longtime friends and partners at Dogwood Coffee, a plucky little quality-focused micro-roaster located in industrial NE MPLS. The years have a way of changing things, and 2014 has seen Dogwood double down on retail, expanding from their original cafe location–in Calhoun […]
Coffee has long been a woefully ignored aspect of the dining experience, but as interest in specialty coffee continues to grow, the importance of a quality coffee program is beginning to cross-pollinate the restaurant world, creating café-restaurant hybrids, the likes of which have not been seen before in North America. From the likes of LA’s Go […]
I have a confession to make… on the surface, I’m something of a stereotype: I work in coffee, I am mildly tattooed, and I like to shoot on film. To clarify, my interest in film isn’t because I want to recreate the grainy-looking filters from Instagram, but rather due to the majority of my photography […]
