Their products are not only available at their downtown location in SoHo, nor are they limited to the various markets that distribute them in NYC. Just go online, and order them right to your front door. It's that easy. In addition to coffee, they also sell tea, candy, filters, syrup, and machines.
MATT: What am I drinking you might ask. Well, I'll tell you but not until I draw it out first. I'm not much for flavored coffees. I enjoy tasting different regions, but that's about as far as I'll usually go. I hardly ever add milk and sugar unless it's called for culturally (See Vietnamese Coffee). I never ever add syrup like they sometimes do at Starbucks. However, there is one flavored coffee that I can't resist because I enjoy all things...pumpkin flavored. That's right folks; pumpkin is my Kryptonite. It is a very singular exception. I am nearly done with a freshly ground bag of Pumpkin Spice Light Roast Coffee from the Porto Rico Importing Co. Good thing I can just order more online.
*Here's a tip for making your own Iced Coffee at home when it starts to heat up again or if you're like me at this very moment and just get a craving for the cold stuff:
- Iced Coffee that you get at a coffee shop is much stronger than it would be if it were hot. That's because when one adds ice, it almost immediately becomes watered down.
- To avoid this at home, if you can't find any bottled cold-brew, make a pot at home, and after it cools, pour it into an ice-tray. The rest is pretty self-explanatory.
