I recently was lucky enough to attend a recent event at Corso Coffee in the newly renovated Paramount Hotel. You might know the space as the former Dean & Deluca (the first one ever in Manhattan)—it has been turned into a light, airy and modern place for friends to hang out, grab a pastry, frittata, homemade blueberry muffins and/or a world-class cup of coffee. But I must say that he scent of the coffee at Corso is like no other coffee house in town. As a matter of fact, when I am walking by the theater district, I simply have to walk in or by Corso to get a whiff.
The first time I was at Corso, I immediately wanted to know what kind of coffee that they use, especially for their heavenly cappuccino, and then I noticed bags of Aneri Tricaffe Super behind the counter (which patrons which patrons will soon be able to purchase as 2.2 pound bags of whole beans or ground. LDV Hospitality who owns The Paramount went to long lengths to select a coffee that would not be available anywhere else in the city and was worth going out one’s way for, and they certainly did their job.
