Panther Coffee

Coffee. Fuel. Life. I need it, and was on the search for a really great cup while I was in Miami. So, I headed over Panther Coffee In Sunset Harbor.

This locally based coffee shop specializes in the small-batch roasting of coffee beans, and preparing finely crafted beverages. I ordered a Cappuccino, which was just what I needed. Nice flavor, and a beautiful little heart in the foamed milk.

They also have an amazing looking selection of cookies, so, I obviously had to get one. I went for their S’Mores Cookie, because, duh. It’s about the size of a small child’s face, and super delicious (the cookie, not a child’s face). It has a nice, slight crispness on out outside, and a soft, chewy center, riddled with chocolate chunks, graham and tiny bits of caramelized marshmallow.

I got creative with it and made a S’Mores S’Mores Cookie with some Birthday Party Squish Marshmallows. It was off the charts. 

The Shorts:
Name: Panther Coffee
Location: 1875 Purdy Avenue, Miami Beach, FL
The Long and Short: Would I go back? For sure, the space is open, bright, and you can tell they take a lot of pride in making each coffee.
Would I recommend it? Yes, a great spot to grab a cup, and definitely when it’s accompanied by a giant cookie.

Irving Farm Coffee

By no means is Irving Farm Coffee new to NYC. In fact, almost 20 years ago, they opened up their first location at 71 Irving in Gramercy. I’ve been going for years, and figured I was way past due on a post for these guys.

They roast everything here in NY at a farm in Hudson Valley, keeping the focus on sustainability and building direct relationships with the coffee farmers. In their cafe, they also offer an array of baked goods and pastries, including a Rice Crispy Treat about the size of your face.

I usually order an Americano. The coffee is robust yet smooth, and vibe in the cafe is nothing shy of quaint. There are a number of little tables in the subterranean cafe, and you’ll usually find them all full.

Name: Irving Farm Coffee
Location: 71 Irving Place, NYC
The Long and Short: Would I go back? Well, being that I’ve been going for years, as long as they’re still there, yup, I will for sure be back.
Would I recommend it? Definitely. They offer great coffee, great snacks, and a cozy little space to enjoy your beverage, get some work done, or catch up with a friend. Warning, you have to be on your table-grabbing game, they’re a hot commodity.
