Per Se’s lavish attention to detail extends to the coffee and tea it serves. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant serves coffee from Equator Estate Coffees and Teas, a specialty blend grown specifically for New York’s Per Se and its Napa Valley counterpart, The French Laundry. Master blender and roaster Brooke McDonnell and business partner Helen Russell calculate the exact grind and water temperature to ensure Thomas Keller’s restaurants serve the best coffee possible. Grown in Panama, the house blend is one of the most expensive in the world. The restaurant also serves a variety of teas from Equator Estate Coffees and Teas.
You can enjoy either the coffee or tea with some of the New York restaurant's housemade mignardises — the selection includes chocolates, marshmallows, truffles and gelées — for a perfect finish to your meal.
