Supercrown Coffee Roasters

A single succulent in a small terra cotta pot sits on each of the hi-top tables. There are two thin, windowsill bar tops and a largely open, clean space with brick walls. The setting is very urban industrial with contemporary vibes. The skylight up above let’s in a beautiful amount of light (I’m obsessed with natural light).  It’s a mainly black and white aesthetic with the main way-back wall being a shade of Pepto Bismol pink. I had a Pepto Bismol pink wall in my college townhouse so I felt some weird connection to this room and wall. There’s an open back room with the huge coffee grinder machine (?), which I have no idea what it actually is… troubling. On the barista counter, the coffee grinder is bright pink and the espresso machine is a bright cobalt blue that reminds me of a car from the 1950s.

That unknown machine is loud in the back – sounds and looks like an industrial size vacuum. Whatever it is… It smells awesome in here. I can’t quite focus on anything aside from that noise so maybe this is not the best for concentrating or bringing your laptop. Although a man across from me is doing that.

I’m sipping on a coffee milkshake, which was $6. I would have paid $10 for it because it’s really good. But that’s just because I’m feeling generous today. Milkshakes are my favorite drink too. They serve bialy’s from Roberta’s (a local restaurant in Bushwick that’s super hyped for their pizzas).

Currently in Bushwick – where the cool kids live. Supercrown is probably a really cool date place if you’re the type that dates during the hours of 7AM-7PM. But weekends are an option. And coffee is always good. Back to date night, avoiding alcohol on dates is interesting and challenging so this could be a cool option. Although I’m pretty sure they make alcoholic coffee beverages – which could be a bonus. Lots of cute people are waking by the storefront. And in and out as I’m sitting here. There’s a guy at the bar right now that looks like a mix between Justin Timberlake and the oldest bully brother from from Home Alone. “Buzz your girlfriend, woof.” Weird mix – I know. That’s Brooklyn for ya.

FYI – It’s 11:15am – why did I just drink a milkshake?

…regardless of your relationship status.

Friday afternoon I strolled by (briskly walked, because it was freezing) this freshly painted street art in NYC. Still wet when I found it, the artist’s paintbrushes were dripping with black ink onto the pavement. Obviously I had to stop to snap a quick iPhone picture for my blog – what a great message to send. Especially on Valentine’s Day weekend. Just a reminder, you are loved. Don’t let yourself forget. ❤
