We’d like to take this opportunity to thank and salute all the city employees and neighborhood volunteers out there working hard to make things right after the hurricane. And there’s no question that when the going gets tough, coffee is a critical wingman. We are lucky in this fair city to have access to some of the best bean blends around, and we’ve assembled a list of our New York favorites for when a java jones strikes. (And there’s no shame in having a third cup.)Supplier: Oren’s Daily Roast
