Pour-over in Midtown

I tried them few weeks ago. I read that they serve counter culture coffee and I just had to try it. I didn't like it. I don't know if it's the method they use to prepare it or the coffee. I had counter culture coffee at Macaron Cafe on 3rd ave and it was very good. They use the french press and the coffee was very smooth and not acidic. They also use organic milk at Macaron Cafe. Lucid coffee was just too acidic for me and wasn't smooth enough. I also didn't like the service.

The barista was amazing. He asked me what I like and when I replied "chocolate", he told me "I know exactly what coffee beans to make for you!" He then measured the exact amount of coffee by putting in on the scale. It was well worth the price just to watch the whole process.

Pour-over in Midtown

I tried my first pour-over at Demarco Coffee today. If you never had one, you have to try it! It's coffee made with very low acidity and amazing taste. They grind the beans in front of you (they have 5 different varieties available). After they grind the beans, they measure the water to precise temperature and pour it over the filter into a cup. It takes few minutes, but it's well worth it. The barista insisted I try my first time in a glass mug and not to-go cup. I like a lot of milk in my coffee, but this coffee tasted awesome with just a drop of cream.
Can anyone else share a good place for pour-over in Midtown East?
