Each of Devoción’s NYC locations know how to reel customers in, but it’s the Williamsburg shop that stands out as one of the most beautiful coffeehouses in… maybe the world? Devoción’s Colombian founder identified New Yorkers’ top kinks—exposed brick, live plants, massive skylights—and created a home away from home that you’ll never want to leave. It’s true that the Williamsburg location only offers Wi-Fi on weekdays, so save the laptop work for Monday through Friday, and on the weekends you can read, study, or write a chapter of that novel you started during the first COVID shutdown.
Praised for its uber fresh coffee beans, Devoción hit the New York scene five years back (and has since spawned three locations from Flatiron to Brooklyn), promising customers an unprecedented freshness standard: that the beans in one’s cup were dry milled in Colombia no more than 30 days (as compared to the six months standard from most roasters) before landing in one’s cup. The roastery works with small farmers exclusively in Colombia, producing beautiful floral coffees from espresso to drip.
