Everyman Espresso has something for every coffee fan

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

It may look like your typical small New York City coffee shop, but Everyman Espresso is far from ordinary. The small shop on West Broadway near Canal Street in Manhattan was recently voted the number one coffee shop in America by thedailymeal.com.

"We are so comfortable in our knowledge and in our place with coffee that we can have fun with it," says Sam Penix, co-owner. "Acid, sweetness, bitterness, all in balance, deliciousness. That's what I think makes a good cup of coffee."

Penix and Sam Lewintin opened the place almost two years ago. It's their second location in the city. It offers coffee lovers ingredients they won't find anywhere else.

"We source coffees from Counter Culture Coffee, which is an awesome roaster in Durham, North Carolina," Penix says. "They get their coffees from all over the world."

There's filter-brewed coffee in a gadget called a Chemex and coffee cocktails. One of the signatures is the cappuccino. It looks like a work of art, and customers say it tastes even better.

"The flavors are different. Maybe they're more sophisticated," says Glen Bolwell, a patron. "There's a nuance to them. I really like it."

So if you're looking for a cup of joe made with love, check out everyman espresso.

"You can come in, and we're going to play Janet Jackson, we're going to make the best cappuccino you've ever had, and we're going to have some fun."

Everyman Espresso has something for every coffee-loving man and woman.
