Throwback to exploring the HBO Headquarters, the Freedom Tower, and the Irving Farm New York Coffee Shop!

Irving Farm New York Coffee Shop, the old Irving Farm Coffee Roasters, helped blaze the specialty coffee trail in New York City after being among the first shops in the city to offer single-origin and specialty-blend coffees. Since opening its Gramercy Park location in 1996, Irving Farm has expanded to locations throughout Manhattan, now roasting out of a space in Millerton, New York, about 100 miles north of the city.

Date of Trial March 30, 2019

NYC 2.jpg

Location 1424 Third Avenue (between 80th and 81st)

Purchased Chai Latte (called “Chai”)

The barista told me to try the Chai since he said this isn’t the chai latte that is sold at Starbucks. The flavor palette of this chai was mighty bold and filled with a plethora of spices.

The Ratings

Overall - A

Items below are rated on a scale from 1 to 5 (1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest)

  • Presentation - 4

  • Boldness - 5 (“Bold” is its middle name)

  • Sweetness - 3

  • Price - $3.75

I’d say the beverage is not for everyone and not for every day but if in the mood, it is delightful!
