Kaffe 1668 New York – new favorite added to the list

Only 3 blocks away from the Hudson, but still in easy walking distance from central Tribeca, we went to check out Kaffee 1668.

Apart from some great food options, the cafe is also really nicely designed, and provides a dark and cool shelter if needed (in our case it was needed; New York summers are hot).

The menu for pour-overs was long, but also we always appreciate a bit of guidance, and the tasting notes definitely helped. We chose the Ethiopian Tawo Mok.

The process was a great example how pour-over should be done, only the total infusion time of 7 minutes seemed a bit long.

Other than that, filters were rinsed, scales used for all parts, and the water came in 5 small pours and plenty attention.

The result was an extremely fresh tasting cup with a strong berry note.

Overall, highly recommended and next time will need to ask about that long pour – I’m sure there’s a good reason for that, too.
