New York Coffee Festival: Review and Pictures (2019)

Coffee is a drug. The best strategy for a coffee festival is: pace yourself.

Today I went to the New York Coffee Festival. I paid $30 for my ticket. It was hosted on 18th Street just a few blocks from my apartment. I’m glad I went!

My Favorite Coffees

Hand holding a cup in front of descriptive sign
Sweetleaf Rocket Fuel was my favorite! It was cold brew with Vermont maple syrup and oat milk.
Cans of coffee and little servings
I liked this iced coffee! Snapchilled Coffee in a can

New Coffee Hardware

I saw these tools and kit that were pretty neat:

Hand and coffee cups with Lithium batteries
Ember battery-powered coffee cup keeps your brew warm
Leverpresso at New York Coffee Festival
Handheld device (Leverpresso) generates pressure for espresso
Holding the FrankOne box coffee maker at New York Coffee Festival
FrankOne says it is “The fastest cold brew and hot coffee maker on the market” because it uses a vacuum seal.

The water challenge! I tried and could only hold one of these for about two minutes.

Inside on the Ground Floor was pretty crazy and wild! It was crowded and busy.

Upstairs was more chill.


It was good. I liked being able to learn about coffee, see new kit, and try many different types of coffees.

Thanks for reading my post!

I’m heading out now. Bye and thanks for reading!

p.s. If you’re in New York City and you got some coffee, why not go drink it in Central Park? I can tell you that the best spot for a picnic in Central Park is Sheep Meadow.
