It's been a while since I've posted about Abraço, but it is worth mentioning again because this tiny old place probably has the best drip and espresso in NYC (plus amazing pastries). I didn't realize how special this place was until I started going nearly every day. I actually think I drink LESS coffee daily because of this place. I have my nice little pour over drip in the morning and then I don't want anything more the rest of the day because my coffee palate is still on such a high from Abraço. Now, this isn't to say I don't appreciate my other coffee go-tos! Plus, this place isn't exactly ideal for lingering or taking the kind of pretty and charming shots that cafes like Dora, Ground Support, or OST offer. I just think there Jamie (the owner) has some kind of magic/special touch that I haven't quiiite found anywhere else.
Perfect cortado, hello.
These were taken on the Contax with Ilford HP5 Plus. I don't often shoot with B/W film and I got some totally unexpected results from this roll. I'll be sharing more later!
