Martha Stewart Opens Her First-Ever Café Selling Artisanal Tea and Coffee
Martha Stewart finally has her coffee kiosk. America’s favorite hostess just opened up her very first café with her Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia company, inside the historic Starrett-Lehigh building in west Chelsea in New York City. The no-frills café will sell handcrafted tea and espresso drinks, as well as a rotating selection of pastries. [related]
"I am thrilled to open the Martha Stewart Café,” Stewart said in a statement. “It's a place inspired by my world travels where anyone can come and enjoy a smooth, well-balanced, beautifully handcrafted cappuccino, latte, macchiato, or just plain Americano. In addition, you must try our artisanal teas — they are the finest available anywhere.”
The café will be partnering with the local, family-owned Kobrick Coffee Co., which will be making a custom bean mix for the café. The mix is called Martha’s Blend, and will be used in both hot and cold espresso beverages. The café will also sell artisanal teas from Wei Bertram of Connecticut-based Arogya Tea. Martha also picked out her favorite local pastries from ChikaLicious, Baked, Bien Cuit, and Balthazar; look for a rotating selection of treats.
