Coffee has never been so complicated. Coffee lovers have so many options to get a cup of Joe in 2020, it can make even a connoisseur feel a bit unsure. That’s where Coffee Project New York comes in. It’s part coffee school—a place to learn about all aspects of the coffee industry—and part coffee shop.
Chi Sum Ngai and Kaleena Teoh opened the school last month in Long Island City, Queens.
“We had this idea of like, how come there is no space in New York City that can actually allow coffee professionals from different companies to come together without hesitating,” Chi said.
The 3,725 square-foot space offers everyone from industry professionals to coffee lovers the opportunity to educate themselves on the entire process of getting coffee from the farm to the consumer.
