    200 Clinton St., 718-855-8173
    Though chain coffee and tea emporiums today dominate much of the City's caffeine culture, Two for the Pot, a cozy boutique on the Brooklyn Heights–Cobble Hill border, continues to provide a refreshing dose of mom-and-pop service, convenience and selection after four decades in business. The diminutive shop packs a diverse inventory of dozens of coffees and loose-leaf teas (many of which, including a Moroccan mint and a smoky Earl Grey, are blended in-house), as well as candies, exotic spices and a panoply of brewing accessories. Much of the customer base is drawn from a neighborhood cast of longtime devotees, but the warmly attentive owner will treat you like a regular even on your first visit. —HP
