Coffee lovers come into this cozy West Village café for a caffeine buzz with a clear conscience. All of their beans are from Rook Coffee Roasters, a New Jersey-based company that roasts a variety of single-origin, fair-trade organic coffee beans. Baristas stand behind the wooden counter turning these beans into cups of drip coffee as well as espresso drinks like lattes and macchiatos. Tea lovers can opt for a cup of Earthbound Tea, organic loose-leaf teas like Ceylon gold from Sri Lanka and white peony from the Fujian province in China, all shipped in eco-friendly packaging. The café itself is a casual little affair outfitted with white paint, menus written on chalkboards and rustic wooden details. Jars of cookies and other baked goods sit next to cute fruit stands full of apples, while wooden shelves hold sweet treats like stone-ground chocolate from gourmet chocolatier Taza.—Keith Wagstaff
