Tribeca’s favorite coffee shop adds cold-pressed juices to its menu

Are coffee shops experiencing a healthy epiphany? Tribeca’s go-to coffee shop, Kaffe 1668, is trucking in a refrigerator this week that will stock cold-pressed juices next to the espresso machines.

The news comes not long after Maury Rubin started serving juices alongside lattes (and giant cookies) at City Bakery on 18th Street, and Jack’s Stir Brew began cold-pressing veggies at its locations. Not to mention Starbucks’ major expansion into juice production and peddling.

What’s behind this indie coffee shop’s new leaf? “Kaffe’s owners are really healthy guys that love healthy food,” says general manager Daniel Torres. “Our food is already natural and locally sourced, but they wanted to see what else we could do. We just introduced several salads to the menu, and the juices will be yet another option.”

Torres said that juice flavors and timing are still being confirmed. At first, the juices will only be available at the North location (401 Greenwich St.), but if they take off, the South shop (275 Greenwich St.) will get a fridge of its own, too.

We suspect healthy Tribeca residents strolling home from class at SoulCycle, Tracy Anderson, or Bari will likely be overjoyed, since as of yet, the neighborhood is long on bakeries and famously short on liquid produce.
