Oliver Strand wrote about the maturation of the NYC coffee scene in "Where to Find Serious Coffee in New York? Everywhere" for the The New York Times—including a gracious recognition of our NYC Training Center:

"One of the most impressive facilities to open this past year was not a shop. Counter Culture Coffee, from Durham, N.C., turned a former carriage factory in NoLIta into a training center, a 3,600-square-foot, loft-like space with stadium seating. If it were a coffee shop, it would arguably be the best equipped in the city."
 
Our weekly Friday Tasting @ Ten was included along with Everyman Espresso on the accompanying "New York in Nine Coffees" list. The article also features a web-based "101 Places to Find Great Coffee in New York" guide that includes many (many!) of our excellent wholesale partners.
