Oliver Strand has some juicy details on the new Chelsea location of Blue Bottle, which is slated to open this Saturday. The first floor will feature a coffee bar with a Strada espresso machine, filter cones for pour-over coffee, and cold-brewers for iced coffee. But real coffee nerds will want to head to the second floor, which will have a six-stool marble bar where baristas will make coffee to order using a nel drip or a halogen burner-powered siphon machine.
To eat, there will be pastries from the Blue Bottle commissary kitchen in Brooklyn, and plenty of delicious jam-slathered toast to go around.
