Kimpton’s 70 park avenue hotel opened Silverleaf Coffee & Tea, a new grab and go concept offering coffee blends from Caffe Vita, a Farm Direct, Seattle-based coffee roaster, with a new café and roasterie on the Lower East Side. Located in the heart of midtown Manhattan, Silverleaf Coffee & Tea will cater to the needs of on-the-go locals and hotel guests alike featuring a selection of Caffe Vita roasted coffees, delectable pastries and treats, and a variety of healthy menu items for guests watching their waistlines. Caffe Vita meticulously sources coffee beans directly from sustainable growers, imported directly from the farm and roasted on-site.
“We know our guests don’t have a lot of time in the morning and we want them to start off their day feeling good – whether it is before a hectic schedule full of business meetings or exploring the city,” said Bill Babis, general manager of 70 park avenue. “Silverleaf Coffee & Tea will offer everything our guests will need to conquer the day ahead of them on the fly.”
Silverleaf Coffee and Tea will be serving Caffe Vita's Organic Espresso and Vita Farm Direct Sumatra Gayo River. Silverleaf will also carry a select line of Caffe Vita coffees available for purchase, and a selection of Rishi loose leaf teas. Additional menu items include sweet treats and baked goods such as seasonal danishes and turnovers, locally-made bagels and breads, and other confections including a selection of macaroons, oversized cupcakes, and an assortment of cookies. Healthy options will include fresh fruit and vegetables, steal-cut oats, Greek yogurts, and other healthy and light fare.
Silverleaf Coffee & Tea will be open seven days a week from 6:30am – 12pm.
