BURNABY, British Columbia, Canada – Coffee so good it actually sparked a modern-day movement is being exuberantly celebrated this week at the Swiss Water Coffee Studio, a contemporary pop-up space located at 300 Lafayette Street, New York, New York.

A broad cross-section of “Third Wave” artisanal coffees will be served from 11 am to 10:30 pm each day, alongside a full complement of original, interactive artworks that elevate coffee to, what many would argue, is its rightful position among humankind’s finest creations.

The “coffee as art” concept starts outside the building, which has been lavishly decorated with vivid, ground-to-eave, coffee-themed murals by famed Chilean street artist Dasic Fernandez.

Inside, the coffee motif continues via a specially commissioned series of colorful, large-scale paintings depicting coffee’s journey from origin to cup. Music, both curated by local dj’s and performed live at two evening events, will play from morning to night.

Swiss Water’s amazing coffee without caffeine will anchor the full sensory experience, with visitors invited to enjoy super-premium coffees from around the world.

Coffees from Ethiopia, Panama and Guatemala will be prepared and served in traditional styles, such as drip, as well as in newer forms like aeropress, siphon and nitro cold brew, a creamy, stout-like coffee that’s best enjoyed iced cold and very black.

Because they are all 99.9% caffeine free, patrons can try as many types of coffee as they want, without becoming over-caffeinated.

“Our company is driven by coffee fanatics who love and understand from crop to cup,” said Frank Dennis, President and CEO of Swiss Water Decaffeinated Coffee Company.

“We also truly believe that fantastic coffee can evoke many of the same reactions and emotions that art does – joy, wonder, appreciation, connection.

This event is a celebration of our passion, as well as a way for us to share our love – and knowledge – of coffee without caffeine, both with other coffee fanatics and the coffee-curious.

This is definitely decaffeinated coffee like you’ve never tasted before and we hope many people will accept our invitation to come try it for themselves.”
