MYFOXNY.COM - How much are you willing to pay for a cup of joe?
A gourmet coffee chain is betting you'll pay up to $12 for a fine brew.
Cafe Grumpy has Brooklyn locations in Greenpoint and Park Slope. It also has a Manhattan location in Chelsea.
It is part of a small, but growing, movement of coffee shops roasting their own beans.
The company defends the steep prices, saying they are higher end coffees and take much longer to develop and process.
The cafes offer a changing selection of coffees. One current offering is called Nekisse. It is described as a "very clean, sweet, complex cup with tropical fruit notes of pineapple, kiwi and key lime."
Cafe Grumpy also offers specialty teas.
