Over the years I’ve noticed how the coffee situation in New York City has been steadily improving. Not long ago it was all Starbucks and Duncan Donuts, but that’s no longer the case. Oliver Strand of The New York Times takes a look at the best places to find good coffee in NYC, including a super handy interactive map.

The article mentions how San Francisco’s Four Barrel Coffee will be roasting in NYC soon. In the last year Oakland’s Blue Bottle opened a cafe in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and Portland’s Stumptown Coffee opened a cafe at the Ace Hotel in Manhattan, along with a roastery in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
