As we’ve mentioned before 60 Beans will be a third¬†wave coffeehouse. Expect to find espresso, pourovers, high quality drip coffee, cold brew coffee (on tap!), as well as loose leaf tea for you tea lovers. On top of the coffee awesomeness, they plan to offer beer (they like ales and lagers) and wine (also on tap!). Food offerings will include French pastries, soups, salads, and sandwiches.

Good news for those who like to surf or work while enjoying a good coffee, drink, or bite to eat—free wifi is in the plans.

Above all, the owners want to create a comfortable, welcoming space where people can come and enjoy themselves alone or with friends, or even on a date, and have some tasty¬†light food and drink. They’ll have outdoor seating, too!

We expect they’ll be open in July or August.

As for the origin of the name of the shop, “60 Beans”—that’s the number of beans Beethoven thought should be in a cup of coffee.

60 Beans, 36-02 Ditmars Blvd, Astoria, NY 11105
