By contrast, New Yorkers can choose from a large number of independent coffeehouses or coffee-centered cafes. According to the New York Times:
Over the last two years, more than 40 new cafes and coffee bars have joined a small, dedicated group of establishments where coffee making is treated like an art, or at least a high form of craft.
At places like Bluebird Coffee Shop in the East Village, the espresso is so plush and bright that it tastes sweet on its own.
... Meanwhile, some established cafes around the city have made moves toward roasting their own beans. Cafe Grumpy is already doing it, and Abraco will by the summer.
Now, there's an appropriate name for a coffeehouse in NYC: Cafe Grumpy.
