Forget pour-overs: Go Get 'Em Tiger gives it to you hot and fast

Kyle Glanville and Charles Babinski want to make your life simpler, quicker and more caffeinated.

When the Intelligentsia alums and world-champion baristas launched their own coffee pop-up, G&B Coffee, last year, their goal was to streamline the coffee experience, not complicate it.

Fresh off their opening inside Grand Central Market, the duo has debuted another quick-serve café in Larchmont Village, Go Get 'Em Tiger. Equipped with an industrial Fetco brewer, the store has perfected the old-school art of automated batch brewing.

Babinski, who cups hundreds of coffee varieties every week, swears that brewing in large batches is more efficient in bringing out nuanced flavors than a single-cup pour-over. It also doesn't hurt that your filtered coffee ($4) arrives in less than a minute.

Using a rotating selection of beans from the country's top roasters, the shop serves exquisite espresso drinks, like the latte steamed with house-made almond milk ($5), plus pre-bottled cold-brew coffee ($4), espresso-vanilla milkshakes ($7) and a tickling carbonated tea soda ($4).

With murals of motorcycle racers and skydiving astronauts decorating the walls, Go Get 'Em Tiger's message is frank: Grab your rocket fuel and go conquer the world.
