The Blue Bottle cafe design team is used to the intensive research and planning that goes into crafting our beautiful and inviting cafes. But they knew our World Trade Center cafe was going to be in a class of its own.
Located across the street from the National September 11 Memorial Plaza, the cafe faces a site that holds painful and complicated meaning for Americans in general, and New Yorkers in particular. Our design team wasn’t interested in glossing over the gravity of this place and its history. Instead, they sought to use humble materials in an interesting way in order to create a refuge for anyone who walks through its doors.
This was already going to be a tall order in a metropolitan hub where tourists, commuters, and workers stream down packed streets into the bustling Westfield World Trade Center. But the cafe’s thirty-foot ceilings, broken up into a satisfying triptych, feel like a glass cathedral, giving an impression of airiness that's somehow both intimate and warm. Around its sweeping glass windows, acoustically absorbent materials minimize echoes and promote conversation.
But nothing, of course, facilitates comfortable conversation better than delicious coffee and food. Featuring our full coffee, wafel, and toast program, including our Oji drippers and a six-scale drip bar, it’s our hope that this cafe will be both a reprieve and a place of reflection, a space for people to just be while they enjoy their coffee.
