This is a little overdue, I’m sorry—but do understand we weren’t in the know of this “Tumblr” thing four months ago when we were wondering “hmm what to do about this web site dilemma?” I think a lil explanation is needed for just why our iced coffee might be the best on the LES. Two reasons. First: FILTRON. No, FILTRON is not a super robot that can instantly cool down coffee with the beam of a laser (though that might be cool). Filtron is this kind of ugly contraption that our friends at Irving Farm told us about in April. We keep it in our office (in the depths of the store) that cold-brews coffee overnight. Magic. It takes a LOT of coffee to make our iced coffee that rich, chocolatey goodness that it is. Enough coffee to fill this giant filter (pictured below)—a filter big enough to make a skirt (that girl who made her prom dress out of coffee filters would LOVE it.)
Here’s Tim, modeling the filter skirt. Isn’t he so sassy?
So FILTRON, check. What’s the second reason? Iced cubes made with coffee. You know, so your iced coffee doesn’t get watered down. Good to the very last drop.
