Coffee as Performance Art in McCarren Park

We may have to rename Williamsburg, Williamsbrew or something because the coffee culture there is just getting a little insane. There's Oslo, Blue Bottle, the Van Leeuwen truck (and shop in nearby Greenpoint), Bakeri, Stumptown coming to Cafe Colette as recently mentioned, and now a coffee vendor in McCarren Park that Oliver Strand says "turns making a cup into a show."

We'll let Strand take the description from here: Kickstand "offers cold brew iced coffee ($2.50), though the show-stopper is the pour over coffee bar, where drip coffee is made one cup at time ($2.50). The pour over bar is outfitted with glass cones sliced off from Chemex drippers—it’s as if coffee geeks and pedalheads made off with the keys to shop class. The distinctive hourglass form of the Chemex earned it a place in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, and seeing one bottomless feels a little naughty. " Don't stop Williamsburg.
