I haven't had time to read the list much these days, but I just happened to=
 notice this thread and thought I'd throw in a couple of words...
Ninth St Espresso - I think their new location on 13th St is closer to 3rd =
than 5th.
Joe... - There's a shop at Waverly and Gay (just off 6th Ave) called simply=
 Joe, which may be what you were thinking of rather than Joe tAoE

Hey,
Anyone interested in taking a tour of the big apple via a couple cafes and
maybe the carnegie deli for some hot pastrami http://www.carnegiedeli.com/)?
I don't have a specific tour route or date in mind, but thought that I'd see
the interest. I don't have a huge house, but might be able to put some out
of towners up (with spousal approval of course) ;- )

anyone know of a roaster or two that we might visit?
i did a google search and found orien's daily roast (www.orensdailyroast.com)
and then this list from allny.com http://www.allny.com/coffee/roasters.html)but i haven't picked through.
i'm not sure how exciting going to a roaster is (or visiting multiple
roasters), i saw a small roaster and it was cool, but i'm not sure how much
different others will be.
i am not a nyc guy, so, i'd have to sit with a map and figure out locations
and how to get to different places. but this is the list of "should visit"
cafes that i've collected:
- Sicaffe on Lexington Ave, between 70th & 71st
- Gimme Coffee, brooklyn
- Ninth Street Coffee in the east village
- 9th Street Espresso
any and all suggestions and preferences are welcome.

John,
See my post on 6/12 for my thoughts on 9th St. and Cafe Grumpy (which should definitely be on your list).  The two 9th Streets you have listed are one and the same, though they have an EV location, which is the original, and a Union Square location.
You have the others that I know about pretty well covered, but I've also heard good things about Joe - the Art of Coffee.  There's one around Union Square and another on 6th & Waverly in the West Village.  Espressomap also lists a place called Blue Spoon, which is downtown.  I don't know anything about that one.
Doing 9th St, Grumpy, and Joe would be a nice little walking tour, as they're all relatively close (the Union Square locations, that is).
Wish I could go, too, but I'll expect a full report here, since I can't.

Great. Thanks for the help. i totally forgot about the espresso map. i like
the concept of being able to walk between locations (9th st and cafe
grumpy). i'm a bit overwhelmed by trying to figure out the subways and don't
want to have to taxi everywhere.
anyhoo, our updated list of potential cafes:
- 9th Street Espresso in the east village
- cafe grumpy
- Sicaffe on Lexington Ave, between 70th & 71st
- Gimme Coffee in brooklyn
- Joe - the Art of Coffee
- Blue Spoon

John,
There's a Sicaffe at 29 John Street, which is in the Wall St. area, 
which would be more convenient...However, I'm under the impression 
that they are closed on weekends. I love the coffee at the Sicaffe on 
Lex., but it's within walking distance.

i have a hard time thinking that we're just going to float from cafe to
cafe. my wife is thinking about going into the city with me/us, doing her
own thing, and meeting up either at lunch or the end of the day.
one of the cafes that we listed is very close to the MoMa
btw, does anyone know of a roaster in the city? i'm thinking that it might
be nice to visit one. or does anyone have feedback about how interesting
that would be - is it a "seen one, see 'em all" kind of thing.
anyhoo, i've charted them on a map and will send out a suggested tour. i
believe that some of the cafes are near china town; so, if a big pile of hot
pastrami (carnegie deli) isn't appealing or convenient to our entertainment,
that may be another option.

Ok. So here's what I'm thinking. (Please know that I have no ego around
this. So, if you have a correction please let me/us know. Also, if you'd
like something else, or in a different order, or not at all please let it m=
e
known.)
These seem walkable from Washington Square
-          Ninth street espresso (13th and 5th) – highly recommended
-          Joe the Art of Espresso (13th and 5th)
-          Café Grumpy (20th, between 7th and 8th) – highly recommended
Unfortunately, none of these are near the Carnegie Deli, or in that
direction – I'm, of course, happy to take a cab or subway there and back,
AND it's near the MoMA! Other than that, it really isn't practical.
Blue Spoon Coffee (Chambers St, between Broadway and Church) is near
Chinatown.
Depending on how early everyone wants to get into the city. Lets say that
this wasn't an early-bird group and we met in mid morning. We could start a=
t
the Blue Spoon and then have lunch in Chinatown.
Then magically figure out the subways to end up in Washington Square and
spend the afternoon visiting the Ninth Street, Joe, and Grumpy (based on
suggestions, maybe in reverse order).
Btw, for those who are taking notes: Sicaffe (Lexington near 70th) also
received several suggestions, but they aren't open on the weekends.
Please let me know what you think. I don't know how far anyone is traveling
or how long you want to be in the city. If you're in Jersey (or want to mee=
t
there), I'm about an hour's train ride to the city. But it's convenient to
drop your car and pool to the train station together.
So far, it looks like a group of three.
Please share your thoughts.

I know that the Vinegar Factory has a roaster upstairs. The 
roasterguy says they roast weekdays to about10:30 AM. When I was up 
there, there wasn't too much to see. I guess if you're the person 
responsible for the roast, it's interesting....
Also, the Sicaffe on Lex has a roaster, but I think they roast off-hours..

John,
That sounds like a good plan to me. The primary goal of visiting espresso
establishments is met. Three establishments to visit, fairly close together=
.
I'll probably be hobbling along,on a bum knee so proximity is an issue.
The Carnegie Deli was a secondary goal. There are lots of good places to ea=
t
in the city, I'm all for staying in the area of the espresso. I'd rather
invest the time in getting to know my fellow cafeinds rather than spending
it running up to a remote deli.

John,
If you guys really want deli food, I'd suggest Katz's, which is on Houston, relatively near to where you'll be.  I'm not trying to start a deli war (they can be very, um, messy), but it's preferred over Carnegie by many.
If you need any other suggestions, you're pretty much touring my old stomping grounds, so I'm sure that I can come up with something, if you're looking for anything in particular (apart from coffee, of course).
Oh, and if you're in Chinatown and trying to get to Union Sq, though you could take the 4-5-6 (or the N-R-Q-W, depending on where you are), you're going to have a far less annoying (and hot) time if you just jump in a cab.

Years ago, when there actually was a Little

preferred Cafe Roma to Ferarras, which is a 
tourist trap. I refuse to buy desserts in a place 
where they fill the cannoli beforehand.. Yuk! 
When I see them sitting in the display stacked 
and filled, I just turn around and walk out...

How about meeting at 10:30 outside Blue Spoon Coffee?
I'm going to be traveling on the Rarriton Line (NJ) and leaving from the
Netherwood RR Station at 8:42 if you, or anyone, want to coordinate travel.
Another option is to meet at NYC Penn Station at 10 and travel as a group
from there - either way.
i was originally planning to have lunch in chinatown because it sounds
wonderful, but should we consider something spanish or italian, since this
is a coffee excursion? the one drawback to going to chinatown is that there
are soooooo many options that we will need to come prepared to look at
a couple and choose one.
so far, i have michael and angelo on the list of people to expect. if
there's anyone else, please speak up.

If you go to chinatown, you could go for dim sum - lots of varieties of
dumplings and steamed food.   I can't remember where I went last (it was a
few years ago), but this is from NY magazine:http://www.chowhound.com/topics/234382.Some places have the food going by on carts that you pick and choose from,">http://nymag.com/bestofny/food/2007/28719/and here's some from Chowhound:http://www.chowhound.com/topics/234382.Some places have the food going by on carts that you pick and choose from,
and others are menu ordering.  Dim Sum is usually only served from 11am -
2pm.  I live near Philly and would join you, but made plans a while ago.
And then there's the Italian hole-in-the wall with excellent service I went
to last time I was in NY, but I simply cannot remember where it was!

been getting much sleep recently, so early starts are difficult. I'll leave
at 7:30, and drive to Princeton Junction, and take NJ Transit from there.

Hi!  I'm actually south of Philly, near the airport.  But it's faster to
drive to Princeton JCT than take the train to 30th st and then to Trenton.

John,
We're driving up from Virginia Thursday and staying with a friend in 
Lodi.  I was prepared to drive into the city, but am getting outvoted by 
  my wife and friend.  We discussed bus and train service into NYC and 
then Lill that we meet with you at the Netherwood Station and ride in 
together from there.  How does that sound to you?  What's a good time to 
meet?  I have your cell phone number from another post.  Mine is 
757.373.3500 if you want to talk ahead of time.

John,
I'm thinking I might join the Caffeine Field Trip on Saturday, at
least for a little while, since I have a couple of errands I need to
do in the city anyway.
Are you still planning on meeting at Blue Spoon at 10:30?  I'll be
driving in (I live in N. Jersey, so it's a short drive), so when I
actually get there depends on how long it takes to park.  I'll try to
leave early enough.
I know my way around a little, so I can offer some assistance if
anyone has questions about getting around, but sadly, I can't offer
any suggestions for lunch in Chinatown.
I will need to head to some non-coffee stores at some point, so
depending on how the day goes, I may need to leave early.

I probably won't make the trip.
My knee got bunged up a couple of weeks ago. I severed the ACL tendon a
couple of years ago & it gave out while I was headed down a ship's ladder.
It isn't doing as well as I had hoped.
Maybe some other time?

My heart goes out to you - I have a bit of a problem with a knee, and
it's not fun, by any means.

Mike hopefully you get better soon.  Make sure you have full 
documentation of all that stuff, what they do to you, with you, for you 
etc etc.... make copies of your medical records and keep them in your 
own posession concerning anything to do with that.
Im going through something similar with my neck right now, Im due to 
have surgery to fuse my spine due to an impact / head  injury from many 
many years ago that is just now finally gotten bad enough to cause me 
problems.  They of course are going to play games, but with the 
paperwork from the time, they can't really deny it.
I am not an expert at any of this kind of crap but have been through the 
process more than once and am well versed in govt games, if there is 
anything I can help you with, let me know off list and I will do what I can.
On the knees though, be very careful, let it heal fully before you 
decide to push it,  one of my friends had surgery to his knee for 
something similar, and pushed it before it was ready...I won't get into 
details now but lets just say he's pretty much severely disabled now 
because of his foolishness.
Take care.
Aaron

Dennis,
The original injury was on a commercial airliner, but yes, the reinjury was
during a cruise on the Big Grey line.

Hi,
Just to point out to those fielding some of NYC's best caffeine that the
wonderful Ninth Street Espresso is at 13th St. off of 3rd Ave and not
off of 5th as has been indicated earlier. Joes is somewhere around 13th
and 5th, but the Ninth Street Espresso Union Square is several blocks to
the East.
Back to lurker mode.
Cheers,
Richard

I'll meet anywhere...
I'd like to point out that in the area of 13th & 3rd (also, 2nd and 
1st down to 8th St.) there are tons of restaurants. There would 
actually be no need to travel down to Chinatown for lunch.
