If this infographic is at all true, New Yorkers sip and slam 6.7 times more coffee daily (and consume more oatmeal, thank goodness) than people in other big cities. So it makes sense that not one, but two new cafés are opening this week: The new, rebranded Irving Farm opens Friday at 224 West 79th, near Broadway, playing a sort of David to the Goliath that is the very first stand-alone New York location of Segafredo Zanetti Espresso, a Bologna-based chain, opening today at 504 Sixth Avenue near 13th Street. The official bulletin from the Department of Gamechanging advises that both coffee shops will serve alcohol. [Wonkblog, NYT]
