Australian cafe Two Hands will open its first restaurant outside of New York City in the Music Lane development on South Congress next month. It’s slated to open at 1011 South Congress Avenue during the second week of October. Two Hands capitalizes on Australia’s renowned cafe culture with coffee drinks (including variations like a beet latte), açai bowls, toasts, salads, and sandwiches. The Austin location, like the other one in New York, will also serve dinner, as well as wine, beer, and cocktails. That means entrees like spiced squid noodle salad and schnitzel as well as Texas-specific additions like a pulled lamb carnitas torta and avocado toast with pickled prickly pear cactus. Get a first look at the menus below. Chef Barney Hannagan grew up in the Australian outback, where he gained an appreciation for native foraging and campfire cooking. He previously worked at another Australian cafe, the Portland location…

Media Credit: Lindsay Paulen | Senior Staff Photographer Levain Bakery’s cookies balance sweetness and flavor – but they’ll only be available for another month. For nearly 25 years, Levain Bakery has been a New York City staple that’s known for its massive 6-ounce cookies. But now you can find the famous cookies just minutes from campus. Located at 3131 M St. NW in Georgetown, the D.C. shop is the bakery’s first venture outside of New York. The cookies’ cult following in New York followed to the District, drawing blocks-long lines at the Georgetown opening Wednesday. Along with cookies, Levain Bakery offers classic baked goods like baguettes ($3), blueberry muffins ($2.95) and walnut sticky buns ($4.50). You can also sip on several espresso drinks like lattes ($3.50), mochas ($4.25) or macchiatos ($2.75). If you’re not a fan of caffeine, you can opt for a hot chocolate ($4) made with Valrhona chocolate,…

Link Copied In the southern corner of Guatemala, outside the tiny mountain town of San Pedro Yepocapa, Elmer Gabriel’s coffee plants ought to be leafed-out and gleaming. It is a week before Christmas, the heart of the coffee-harvesting season, and if his bushes were healthy, they would look like holiday trees hung with ornaments, studded with bright-red coffee cherries. But in a long row that stretches down the side of his steeply sloped field, the plants are twiggy and withered. Most of their leaves are gone, and the ones that remain are drab olive and curling at the edges. There are yellow spots, brown in the center, on the leaves’ upper surfaces. On the underside they are pebbly, and coated with a fine orange dust. The dust looks like rust on a piece of steel, and that is how it got its name: The plants are infected with coffee-leaf rust,…

It’s not easy to brew excellent coffee. Everything must line up perfectly. Coffee grounds need to mingle with hot water for the right length of time. Water for brewing must be at the precise temperature too. Few drip coffee makers can pull off this delicate balancing act and sadly serve pots of terrible joe. We’ve found some noteworthy exceptions on the market and whether you want to brew perfect lattes, iced coffee or turn coffee beans into the perfect cup of fresh coffee, you don’t need to spend a mint to get the best coffee maker. You can drop almost $500 on a tricked-out Ratio Eight that’s as beautiful as it is capable, or on a programmable commercial coffee maker. But all it takes is $15 to get Oxo’s superb Single Serve Pour Over funnel. For more like this Subscribe to the CNET Now newsletter for our editors’ picks of…
