Ascension Coffee, the new coffeehouse slash wine bar from restaurateur Russell Hayward (Tom Tom, Lazare), descends on the Design District Saturday morning at 8 a.m. The shop will feature single origin, house-roasted coffees and a $20,000 Synesso Hydra Hybrid espresso machine. Coffee drinkers can get their fix from any one of five different brewing methods: "by French press; siphon (an old method done atop a Bunsen burner); Chemex (a scientific technique using a beaker and thick filter); V60 pour over (another filtered approach normally for lighter coffees); or cold brew."
For those seeking a buzz of a different sort, Ascension will transform into a wine bar in the evenings and feature small plates for snacking.
