Think Coffee, a Mercer Street favorite among NYU students, is the newest place to plant itself on the Bowery. The coffee, a special blend from Porto Rico Importing Co., is organic and fair trade, and though the espresso is served in smaller portions than at Starbucks, head barista Andrew Cotorceanu assures us it makes for a better espresso-to-milk ratio. Our recommendation: the sweet, thick Spanish variety made with condensed milk and sugar.
