{new york coffee} Happy Bones

Something I’ve learned about coffee shops in New York is that they are typically very small, meaning space is going to be limited. As someone who prefers to sit-and-sip, rather than buy-and-dash, I’ve since grown accustomed to arriving early in the morning. So on a bright yet cold Sunday morning, I walked down to Nolita at around 8am to visit Happy Bones, an ethically-minded coffee shop on Broome Street.

Created by New Zealanders, the shop sources its beans from Counter Culture Coffee, a company that works directly with farmers to trade at fair prices. The founders are big fans of sustainability and recycling, and to top it off, a portion of their proceeds are donated to Free Arts NYC, a foundation supporting children’s arts. You’ll find local art on the shop walls, and beautifully published arts magazines on the shelves in this minimally designed space.

I brought one of my old books from college, “The Architecture of the Eighteenth Century,” and sat down to enjoy my ritual latte:
