Watch Martha Stewart Give a Tour of Her New N.Y.C. Café (Video)

You better believe that Martha Stewart‘s baristas know how to brew a solid cup of coffee.

In a new video, the lifestyle mogul provides a guided tour of her less-than-a-month-old café located in the lobby of the Starrett-Lehigh building in New York City, which also happens to be Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia’s headquarters.

Stewart, 73, describes the new eatery as “clean, and beautiful and very ‘Martha,'” she said with air quotes.

She also gives rundown of all the shop has to offer: coffee and espresso drinks sourced from Kobrick Coffee, teas from Arogya as well as an assortment of pastries (we spy a Cronut-esque treat in one display!) — as well as details the extensive process with which baristas for the shop were trained.

“I think our baristas are charming and cute, and very, very friendly — and good at their job,” Stewart said.

Stewart says the café sent the baristas to Kobrick to “learn the perfect cup of coffee.” Barista Sammy Lin of N.Y.C.’s Via Quadronno even taught the crew how to make latte art , like making a cat’s face in the foam—complete with whiskers!

“I just want them to learn how to make me a cat-puccino some day,” Stewart said.

The Martha Stewart Café provides a wonderful assortment of coffee, tea, and baked goods. Martha’s Blend ground coffee is a medium-roast sourced from beans across the globe, including Kenya, Guatemala, and Indonesia.
