The Morningside Heights outpost of Joe the Art of Coffee opened at the corner of 120th Street and Broadway in late 2011. The bright, open space comes with double-height ceilings and gray marble counter, making the place look more like a high end museum café than a university neighborhood caffeine stop. Artisan coffee is, predictably, what Joe the Art of Coffee does best, serving a house blend throughout the day, while rotating in a single origin coffee selection as well. The baristas at Joe know the difference between a latte and a cortado, and they happily make each cup with precision and a certain amount of flair; a selection of pastries is available. The company roasts its beans at Pulley Collective, a membership coffee roasting facility in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
