Try The Most Expensive Cup of Coffee In The U.S. At Extraction Lab
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
We begin tonight with the most expensive cup of coffee found in the United States—and of course it’s in Brooklyn. Alpha Dominche Extraction Lab has created an impressive and complex filter coffee-brewing system called Steampunk that produces the Instagram-famous coffee in question. At $18 a cup, it’s over-the-top luxurious, but it is really good coffee. No grinds at the bottom of your cup, and absolutely no bitter aftertaste. Don’t even try to ask for milk and sugar here—it’s black or bust. Only true couple coffee snobs will probably make the trek out here, but we think it’s kind of a funky tourist trip—and definitely makes for a cool date stop.
After you drop almost $40 on coffee, head to La Parada for a way more down-to-earth dinner (and some of the best Dominican food BK has to offer). Your best bet is to order a simple plate of rice, beans, and roast chicken. The cubano sandwich also has rave reviews. Locals say if you order in Spanish, you’ll get a better price. Try it for yourselves.
