Sicaffe-Great Espresso Bar on the UES
Sicaffe has been open for several months on Lexington Avenue between 70th and 71st street. For an informal coffee bar, they serve the best espresso and espresso drinks on the UES. I can't even think of another storefront place in Manhattan with similar high quality- (close would be the espresso at the Italian Market in Chelsea Market).
The staff is friendly and alert.
My wife was commenting on how good the Capuccino was at this place. I was rather skeptical, as I am quite particular about coffee -- frankly, most of the coffee bars I have tried in New York are way overrated, and Starbucks in particular can't make a decent cup of coffee regardless of all the hype. Sicaffe's UES location had probably the best Capuccino I have yet tasted in any Coffee Bar yet in New York City. Strongly recommended.
I visited Israel this spring and fell in love with AROMA coffee. The bag reads [100% Aradica coffee beans for Cappuccino]. The bright red with Hebrew wording is in a black square on the front. The weight is 1000g. A friend in Israel has mailed one bag to me.
QUESTION - Is this same AROMA coffee available now in New York and can the coffee be mailed to Maryland, USA?
