Nespresso comes to SoHo
So what is it? Nespresso is a Nestle company and is their premier line of coffees and exclusive machines. Nespresso utilizes a extracting machine that under high pressure brews coffee from a single serving capsule. Very much like espresso. Nespresso is not how your parents made coffee.
If you like to live in the moment, like to cater your coffee taste depending on your day, need to move fast or just like to entertain guest while offering perhaps dozens of varieties and flavors. Nespresso is the answer.
No longer are you confined to brewing one variety of bean, roast or flavor…why not have it all!
Nespresso has actually been around since 1976, but available only in Europe or through mail order. Recent years seen this form of brewing grown in popularity here in America. Likely due to Americans love of choices and we are always on the go. Even then though Nespresso was only available in distinct stores or online.
Where can I get MINE…well now you can not only shop and buy your own Nespresso machine and dozens of capsules. You can now relax and enjoy Nespresso in its new SoHo boutique cafe. If you never tried Nespresso well now try before you buy.
SoHo is perfect for Nespresso’s American store. SoHo already attracts alot of European’s who are familiar with its coffee. SoHo shoppers are attracted to style, fashion, quality and uniqueness…Nespresso is all the above.

Valentines Day of course means one thing…CHOCOLATE!
While in SoHo one place stands out above the rest in this dark magic. Kee’s Chocolates on 80 Thompson St.
“At this SoHo chocolatier, the same ingenuity that brought sesame to a truffle puts a dark chocolate-and-sesame ganache between two black-sesame meringues, leaving intimations of almond on your tongue. Sample the peach-ginger and rose-lychee confections.”
—Departures, Nov/Dec 2008
Kee’s Chocolates was formed in 2002 by
Kee Ling Tong, who left her job in the corporate world to pursue her dream of opening a shop for flowers and chocolates in New York’s SoHo area. After a year, Kee’s reputation for making fine chocolates overshadowed her flower business, and she began to concentrate on her hand-made chocolates full time.
Seven days a week, Kee can be found at her shop making chocolates fresh for that day. The available flavors change with availability of ingredients, and certain flavors remain seasonal.
SoHo is for lovers.
