NEW YORK CITY | Sawada Coffee is located inside the NYC outpost of Chicago restaurant Au Cheval and, like its Chicago counterpart, focuses on quality coffee with a twist.
It’s named for co-owner and founder Hiroshi Sawada, a skateboarding latte art champion, and sees his dark roasted Tokyo-style coffee presented in a variety of unique ways. Yes, you can get it as an espresso shot or regular style latte, but you’re coming here for something different.
The signature military latte, made with matcha and dusted with cocoa powder, is great. As is the black camo latte, made with hojicha. They are both dense and delicious, with just the right blend of roasted tea and coffee notes. You can add kuromitsu, a Japanese black sugar syrup, to your drinks, but unadorned with sugar is the way to go.
