Empire Coffee makes me feel that this is the real New York. The way New York should be. The drinks are great and the staff is excellent. The Coffee beans there are hand roasted and delicious. For the whole bean coffee there are many choices including some extremely good house blends, my favorite is one called ""Tanzanian Devil"", the devil is comprised of a french roast Kona, Indian Malibar and the small bean Tanzanian Peaberry. The loose tea's are also top quality, my favorite is called ""The Science of Super Tea"" which is loaded with delicious antioxidants and flavors. There is a secret drink menu which i will let you discover for yourself, but i will tell you about one of the best drinks I have ever tasted, it is called ""The Snookie"" and it is hazelnut coffee mixed with mexican spiced cocoa and steamed milk, mmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!
