    A good place to enjoy coffee drinks prepared using weekly imports of hard-to-find Nordic coffee roasters or house roaster Lofted (Bushwick). They also host a CSA and various popups. Pretty space.

    BÚÐIN stocks coffee beans by Tim Wendelboe of Norway and Koppi of Sweden, with guest beans from other parts of the nordic region and the option to sign up to a whole-bean subscription service

    Greenpoint is spoiled for great coffee shop backyards. Budin has a pretty chill backyard, sports clean Nordic design, one of the most interesting multi-roaster menus in NYC, wifi, plugs & craft beer.

    So popular for laptops that it can be hard to get a seat despite a large bar, 2 front tables, 3 stool height 4 tops and a garden (weather allowing), Búdin offers coffee from many roasters. Free wifi.

    It is tough to get single origin espresso in NYC. And if You luck - mostly it is Americas. That is why You must to go here. I had my Burundi and it was best espresso in NYC from 15 places I checked.

    Coffeeshop by day; beer bar at night (coffee also available for those who need a caffeine fix or alternative to drinking). Small, communal tables, great ambience. Perfect date spot at night.

    Baristas have a little bit of a ’tude, but the coffee is amazing and you can't find these beans anywhere else around here. When I get homesick, I'll come here.

    Greenpoint needs all the quality coffee it can get, even if it is of the inconsistent variety. Búdin offers interesting drink variations, Nordic coffee roasters & food in a beautiful setting. (2/14)

    The rich Lakkrís latte is certainly worth it, although it's more of a dessert. Coffee and espresso are executed very well, and they stock some interesting Nordic goods. Beer & wine as well.

    I much prefer their hot coffee over their iced which has an almost sour flavor. Great spot to get a little work in on the laptop, they've even got beer in tap to reward yourself once you finish

    Worth the hike for Scandinavian roasters that are hard to find and Tim Wendelboe following. Huge outdoor garden in the back. Awesome staff.

    Best music! Also my iced coffee is bright and rich just like I like it. I feel cool here and the work station seating is perfect for my purposes.

    Good coffee, strong wifi, adorable Nordic atmosphere. Check out their collection of cute (and mildly creepy) Nordic children's storybooks.

    If you want to try something different, go for the licorice-flecked latte. BÚÐIN is also celebrated for its friendly baristas and great decor. Read more

    Light-filled Scandinavian- and Icelandic-inspired new coffee house on Greenpoint Avenue. Sexy, contemporary design and prices to match but worth every penny.

    Modern swedish coffee house. Large in size but intimate setting. Quality beverages. Grab a coffee, sit here and get your creative mind on.

    This place is incredible! With a backyard as big as my parent's house, natural light in front and back of the shop, tasty coffee and on-tap brews. Does it get better??

    The $10 licorice-flecked latte is definitely worth trying - at least once. Super friendly baristas as well!

    Quite possibly the platonic ideal of a coffee shop to get work done at. Plenty of seating and light, great coffee, and free wifi.

    The best aeropress coffee in all of NYC. Hands down. No questions. Budin gives all the shits about serving amazing coffee

    lakkris latte just went from $7 to $10 because of the "dwindling supply of licorice powder and anise syrup sourced directly from Denmark"

    Known for its $10 latte, but get something softer on the wallet and still enjoy the roomy space.

    Try the $7 latte. "Beans grown in Ethiopia, roasted in Norway, the anise syrup and raw licorice powder both from Denmark."

    Eater: "When it opened, Budin created a stir for serving a $7 licorice latte. That drink, which includes imported anise syrup and expensive licorice powder, is now $10. "

    Coffee + merchants up front. Latte didn't quite live up to the hype, butter croissant was the start. Messy bar back was off putting
