Porto Rico Importing Company

By Chad Carns

Porto Rico Importing Company Cold Brew Coffee is a great find. They have been in business right on Bleecker Street since 1907.

The Cold Brew mix is blended on premise from a huge selection of imported coffee beans. And the costs is only $2.25! Every New Yorker needs to walk into this shop just to check it out. There is something really cool about these little shops on Bleecker Street. Not much has changed in over 100 years. The coffee is delicious!


Porto Rico Importing Company:

Coffee is a wonderful thing. It wakes us up in the morning. It brings people together through talk and socializing. It gets us going when we need a helpful boost. But for me, the greatest thing about coffee is how it brings out the idiosyncratic nature of the people who drink it. We coffee drinkers are very particular about how we prepare our morning brew. It becomes part of our comforting daily ritual. It gives us all an opportunity to be individuals in a world gone mad with constraints.
