More on Dora, the Gourmet Coffee Shop Opening on East Broadway

Must Read

During the summer, we mentioned that a new gourmet coffee shop called Dora would be moving into 221 East Broadway, on the corner of Clinton Street.  Traven had a nice talk earlier today with Nicole Slaven, who’s going to be running the business (look for that story sometime soon).  Meanwhile, Serious Eats profiled Slaven in a feature they posted on the coffee vendors at the Hester Street Fair:

On the more feminine side of the spectrum is Sunday’s coffee service, offered by Manhattan native Nicole Slaven at Dora. Slaven, who will open a bricks-and-mortar Dora café (named for both her great grandmother, Dora Cohen, and the park adjacent the café space on East Broadway) later this fall, is a longtime NYC food veteran, winding her way through chocolate, cheese and spirits before landing in a love of coffee. The Dora stand’s Stumptown by-the-cup (brewed in adorably appropriately sized one-cup Hario V60 cones) and cold-brew takeaways are, like Kickstand’s, powered by minimalism—a power strip, grinder, an electric kettle, and a portable jug of water—but the customer interaction at the market is Slaven’s connection to an underserved coffee community. “I’ve never been able to shake wanting to work at a counter. With coffee, I can be in my own shop, make drinks, teach, people about coffee and brewing, share stories, and help make their days great.”
