Brooklyn has seen a remarkable coffee transformation in the past few years. Once a coffee desert, the borough is now a destination for freshly roasted beans, crema-capped espresso and unbeatable latte art. Wondering where you can find the best cortado this side of the East River? Curious to see coffee roasting in action? Ever wonder how those scientific glass beakers craft a quality brew? Or what the guy next to you means when he orders a flat white?
Find the answers to these questions and more on the Food Book Fair Coffee Crawl. Writer, Oliver Strand, and founder of Illustrations and Coffee, Lars Kolstad Huse, will satiate your coffee curiosity as they lead a tour of four Williamsburg’s premier coffee destinations. You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at roasting, brewing and buying, and you’ll sample some of the best coffee the borough has to offer.
