Someone once said, “A morning without coffee is like sleep.” If this rings true for you and your coffee maker, Porto Rico Importing Co. is the place to go.
There’s nothing like having a fresh cup of coffee in the morning. And if you brew your own daily cup, you probably stick to the beans you love most. Well, your world is about to change (or, at least your coffee), because once you step foot into Porto Rico Importing Co. on Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village, you’ll never buy the store-brand or big-name beans again. Even better yet, Porto Rico’s Manhattan location is a short walk for TF Cornerstone residents living in the West Village.
Behind the large storefront in Greenwich Village sit dozens upon dozens of blends from all corners of the globe. Porto Rico Importing Co. in Manhattan knows what they’re doing, and have over 100 years of experience to prove it. This NYC coffee shop is almost like a candy store for the coffee enthusiast–burlap sacks overflowing with roasted beans. An entire range of bodies, flavors and regional backgrounds is just waiting to be tasted. If it’s good coffee, it’s probably at Porto Rico.
If you’re nota coffee enthusiast, this place may seem a little daunting. Don’t worry–just tell the helper up front and let them point you in the right direction. It might feel like a shot in the dark at first, but after a few different blends you’re bound to find something new and refreshing. Oh, and don’t get stuck on the whole ‘imported’ coffee idea. Although these beans hark from all geographies and climates, they remain incredibly fresh on their journey to Greenwich Village.
If the bold, precise aroma of coffee doesn’t perk your senses, a mugful certainly will. Right in the back, Porto Rico Importing Co. roasts and brews their own beans for a quick joe on the run. So next time you’re running low on caffeine, head over to their storefront at 201 Bleecker Street. Or if you don’t have time to browse the beans, order a bag of coffee online! Once you experience Porto Rico Importing Co., you’ll never go back to the boring, bland pre-packed beans again.
