I’d be remiss to not mention the brewing coffee battle currently going on over Stumptown Coffee Roasters here in NYC, though it’s not what you may think. This particular battle is being waged between the media outlets, and not any brewers of the bean. It started in April when New York Magazine published this article about Stumptown’s entry into the NYC market. This afternoon NY Press posted a view of their own. Almost immediately after the the NY Press article was released, New York Magazine followed up with a response to the NY Press.
Are New York Magazine and NY Press in a fight? Do they have a history of going at each other? Or is this just par for the course when it comes to the legendary NYC media? It remains to be seen how these two will resolve their differences, but something tells me this may not be over yet. Judging by the comments on all three pages, neither of them have their facts quite straight.
