Cafe in NYC – Walter’s Coffee Roastery

かっこよすぎる科学室のような風貌を持つWalter’s Coffee Roastery。ブルックリンによくあるトレンディなカフェとは一味違います。 実はここ、美味しいコーヒーを作る為に最適なお湯の温度や、エスプレッソマシーンの圧力などを研究しつくした、まさにコーヒーを科学したカフェなのです。 その独自性は、以前ご紹介したCoffee Festivalでも人々の注目を集めていました。 Walter’s Coffee Roastery is bit different from other trendy Brooklyn coffee shops.
