Devoción: The world's freshest coffee in a soaring Brooklyn setting

Brooklyn is packed with great coffee shops – in one afternoon that I spent there, I drank four coffees, just so I could try every amazing café that I came across!  Devoción was one of them, and it really was one of a kind, totally different to every other coffee shop I’d set foot in during my stay in New York – and anywhere in the world maybe?

3 great and unique things that will make coffee snobs adore Devoción:
(1) That interior.  There’s a huge living wall (which includes Colombian coffee plants, naturally!), soaring ceilings and a sky-light, comfy Chesterfield sofas to collapse into, striking posters on the bare brick walls and beautiful photographic books to peruse.

(2) Devoción is serving the freshest coffee in the world – literally.  The company flies beans from Colombia weekly, so they arrive at the Brooklyn roastery at just 10 to 30 days old (the industry norm is 3 months to 1 year of age).  Beans are bought directly from over 400 small farms in Colombia including some of the most remote areas – which are the source of the country’s most robustly flavoured beans.

This focus on the quality and freshness of beans is testament to the company’s ethos that coffee is such an incredibly important, complex and gastronomically sophisticated beverage – coffee has over 1000 aromas, whereas wine tops out at only 800!

The range of drinks available is broad too, and includes espresso, drip and cascara (a caffeinated tea made from coffee cherries), all crafted by expertly trained baristas.
