A Dripper Bar Grows in Brooklyn

Today, the New York Times reports that Oakland-based Blue Bottle Coffee is opening a roaster and cafe this week in Brooklyn (Williamsburg, to be exact). Followers of owner James Freeman's tweets have been noticing that he's been in New York a lot, and now everyone knows why. Blue Bottle East is creating a similar kind of setup to Mint Plaza, serving two different kinds of pour-over coffee and creating a spectacle with a Japanese siphon slow-dripper bar.

Blue Bottle is actually the second major West Coast Third Wave microroaster to settle in New York in the past six months.
