StreetLevel: 4th Avenue In Clover

3B-clover-03-2008.JPG
Here’s some wildly thrilling news for coffee dorks: The $11,000 machine that Slate posits could “broaden the way we think about coffee” is coming to 4th Avenue. 3B, the soon-to-open cafe on Carroll and 4th (nee “Brooklyn Bean”), will have a Clover coffee maker. The luxe machine makes cups one at a time and is a rare lil’ caffeinated bird. A story in the Times a couple months ago said there are only about 200 of them in shops across the world, though their cult status is quickly becoming more mainstream (there are a few already in NYC). 3B’s espresso machine is no slouch, either, and its owners say they spent months selecting the beans they’re going to use. The business, which’ll also serve some light food, should be up and running in about a week and a half.
