Hi friends, welcome back! I’m currently on a mission to complete my 2020 NYC Bucket List, and one of the first activities I checked off was visiting the Starbuck’s Reserve Roastery in the Meatpacking District. The Starbuck’s Reserve Roastery is quite an enchanting coffee experience! There’s a bar, unique coffee flavors that are brewed onsite, a bakery, and a giant coffee roasting area. We’ve walked by the Reserve a few times in the Meatpacking District and there was a line out the door, so we decided to get there by 9:30am. It was nice and calm when we arrived, but by the time we headed out it started getting pretty crowded.
The Roastery was a lot bigger than we expected, and we counted at least three different coffee bars on just the first floor! We browsed the merchandise while we got our bearings, and soon found the main coffee bar in the center of the Roastery.
Jon and I decided to get a flight of coffee and we tried the Pantheon Blend Vintage 2019, Hawaii Ka’u, and Guatemala Antigua Santa Clara Estate. Our favorite was the Hawaii Ka’u but they were all tasty.
We also got a Nitro Molé Mocha which has espresso, dark chocolate mocha, bitter chocolate mist and almond milk. The drink was topped with nitrogen-infused cold brew and it was super strong! This was one of Jon’s favorite drinks.
We sipped our coffee and had a great view of the city even on a dreary day. For how big and open the café was, it seemed very cozy and warm.
After we finished our coffee, we ventured around the store to check out the other areas. I wonder how many coffee beans are in there!
I loved all of the rose gold details around the store, it’s so pretty!
A very caffeinated couple 🙂
We had so much fun exploring the Starbuck’s Reserve Roastery and trying some new coffee flavors. I’d highly recommend going to one near you, you won’t be disappointed!
