Manhattan Special isnt the only thing doing in coffeeland today. Local stalwart Dallis Coffee, which supplies Danny Meyers restaurants (among others) is opening up its Queens roastery for three-and-a-half-hour long cuppings and tours. Contact for dates; tours are $10. Also, relative newcomer Birch Coffee informs us that its now cold-brewing iced coffee. Whee! Oh, and Slate takes a look at the phenomenon of Colombian chain Juan Valdez Caf it has 60 locations in Bogota, where there is nary a Starbucks to be found.
