The best cafe in NYC?

International Coffee gadabout and photoauteur Liz Clayton is doing some damn fine work over at Serious Eats New York.

This is the second time we’ve featured Liz’s work at Serious Eats, and not the first time we’ve mentioned the enormously exciting project underway at World Bean LaGuardia. Coffee types the world over, we urge you: divert your flights from JFK to NYC’s mayoral airport complex, and behold the future of specialty coffee in action:

Travellers passing through LaGuardia’s Delta Terminal D are charmed to have the brand new, nearly-inexplicable state of the art World Bean coffee bar to ready them for their next trip—or revive them for that brutal NYC re-entry.

Boasting an exclusive Slayer espresso machine and a wide variety of roasters—Intelligentsia, Counter Culture Coffee, Ecco Caffè, Caffé Vita and Olympia Coffee Roasters were on the menu board last week—World Bean may be the city’s coffee-geekiest and most ambitious cafe going right now.

This charming piece goes on to feature an interview with Jesse Kahn, made guy and consigliere of the World Cup family. You can read the full piece here, and check out Liz’s column at Serious Eats for weekly updates.
