Default New Manhattan Starbucks

A friend of mine was the principle project manager for the new Starbucks that opened in Chelsea. The location is

61 9th Ave
Chelsea, Manhattan 10011

It is one of the new Reserve Roasteries that are supposed to be all about the experience. This is the first one in the US.

If you happen in and want to pass along any feedback, I'll see that it gets to her.

Unlike their regular stores, these are actually worth visiting. Small correction, the NY is the second one in the US, fourth one in the world. Seattle has the first one.

One thing I do actually really like is Starbucks Cold Brews and the Nitro Cold Brew is fantastic. I drink a lot of SB but those two drinks are the only two that I enjoy, the rest I just drink.

It's almost like it isn't burnt at all!

Had "pour over" coffee in SF that I have to admit was pretty good, but waiting 10 minutes for a cup of coffee was a bit of a drag.

Doesn't have that burnt flavor that their normal coffee has, not sure why.

If you're at a Starbucks and want to have an espresso drink, try ordering it as ristretto instead of their regular beans. Much cleaner taste, I ordered all my coffee drinks that was at Starbucks my last few years on the job.

I'm not a big Starbux fan, (La Colombe blows them away) but if I am in the area I will check it out.

I’ve been meaning to go here! I saw it before it opened and got excited. The one they built in Italy is really cool too. I’ll make sure to take some pictures.
