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.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?

    Believe it or not this, some say New York's outdoor basketball courts are a dying entity. Even Rucker Park in Harlem -- where Dr. J and countless others honed their skills -- used to be standing room only all times of the day. Now there's plenty of room to stand on most days.Basketball programs like one at Chelsea Piers are gaining popularity. That means the place to hoop it up for many appears to be indoors.

    All of us feel the same way about "cooties": Eww. At the Goddard School on the Upper West Side, a high-tech machine is keeping "cooties" out of the classroom. "This is the latest and then most effective sanitization method available today," says Bill Swan, the owner of the Goddard School. He purchased the ZONO Sanitech for his school about six months ago. The machine is the size of a double refrigerator and uses oxygen to kill viruses and bacteria.
