In celebration of National Coffee Day, the Food52 team is sharing the (arguably) most important part of our morning routine.

At 8:30 AM yesterday morning, the Food52 team gathered five avenues west of our office to wait for our bus to Hudson for a field trip (!). But before any activities could commence—which included an eventful bus ride, a beautiful lunch in Hudson, and apple picking—there was lots and lots of coffee. Without our trusty office Chemex, the team sipped their go-to orders (from bodega dollar cups to double-shot lattes) from cardboard cups and mugs. Here, in their own words, is what the Food52 team drinks when it's too early to do anything else:


Caroline, Assistant Editor: Straight-up coffee (brewed at home) with milk.
Victoria, Controller: Iced coffee from the cart down the street.
Jennifer, Data Analysist: Black coffee from Gimme!, which is the only place I can drink black coffee from! It has a sweet finish.
Bridget, COO: My usual, which is a medium latte with an extra shot—no sugar.


Gabriella, Senior Manager of Brand Experience: Black coffee from a place that has $1 coffee before 9 AM!
Clare, Account Manager: Hot coffee with milk.
Madeline, Community Manager: Drip coffee I made!
Allison, Test Kitchen Manager: A cheap, shitty black coffee for $1.50 from a street vendor.


Leandra, Senior Account Executive: Drip coffee with a crap-load of cream and a little sugar.
Taylor, Editorial Intern: Venti blonde roast with a double-shot and a splash of milk.
Ali, Associate Editor: Just a latte.
Olivia, Office Manager: Bodega coffee with a splash of skim milk.
