CoffeeProject is a quaint little shop in NYC’s East Village that truly focuses on customer service. Upon entering, I was warmly greeted with a smile and welcome. I ordered the fan-favorite “deconstructed latte” (which must be consumed on-premise) aka can’t take it to-go!
The “Deconstructed Latte” concept is really fun if you’re a coffee person or just like doing interesting things while you consume food. Basically it’s served in a specific order – first you drink the espresso, then you drink the milk in it’s “raw-est” form, and finally the combined ingredients as a latte. The broken down order really does enhance the flavor of the final product, the latte – it’s also a two-for one because your’e totally getting more bang for your buck.
The owner, Sum explained the whole concept & process to me and even followed up shortly after to see if I liked it. The coffee experience is served with a small glass of sparkling water to cleanse the palette and a small wafer cookie. I’m a huge fan of experience over anything and this is definitely what you get at CoffeeProject. Highly recommend for a spot to meet a friend for a chat!

Every so often I like to gather some random pieces of information about things in NYC that I’m currently obsessed with. I’m often asked for recommendations from family & friends, and love to share my finds so I’m going to post something different everyday this week. Take a look below! Xx
KAWS Exhibit – The Brooklyn Museum
The Brooklyn Museum always has something pretty awesome going on – I recommend going to visit whether KAWS is showing an exhibit there or not. The KAWS “Along the Way” exhibit is huge and right in the lobby… basically if you’re so inclined to go view it and don’t want to see anything else at all in the museum, you totally can… for free!
Thursday nights the museum is open until 10pm – I went after work and it was a “pay what you want” night – SCORE! It was pretty quiet which allowed for a great experience without bumping into random people while I was browsing through all of the galleries.
The humongous wooden piece provides a richer, deeper, meaningful feeling much more than traditional childhood cartoons would generally provide. If you’re into that sort of thing. But bottom line, definitely something cool to go see before the exhibit closes on December 6th!
There’s also a bunch of other museums and places to visit right in that area – so try to hit up others while you’re there.
