“Brace yourself, Winter (Blend) is coming.” We’ve chosen our bold and balanced Winter Blend as January’s Coffee of the Month. This distinctive, Fair Trade certified blend is made up of the same coffees found in our Iris blend, but roasted darker to give it a nice, full body. The warming and spicy blend of Peru, Sumatra Permata Gayo and Ethiopian Natural has lingering caramel and cocoa-tinged finish that make it perfect for these cold winter months. Through January, pick up Winter Blend for $1 off in our online store (savings automatically applied) and in our cafes.
Here’s our Coffee of the Week schedule for our cafes:
Dec 29-Jan 5th: 3D
Jan. 5th-11th: Mexican Chiapas
Jan. 12th-18th: Ethiopian Natural
Jan. 19th-25th: Costa Rica Naranjo
Jan. 26th-Feb 1: Nicaragua Gold Mountain

New York Habitat recently compiled a list of the Top Ten Coffee Shops in New York City. Brooklyn Roasting Company is thrilled to be on the list and honored to receive such kind praise. As the article puts it, “Brooklyn Roasting Company offers a fantastic selection of fair trade and organic coffees. The first location of the café is located in an old warehouse just a block away from the East River and the Manhattan Bridge in DUMBO. The spacious café is furnished with recycled and re-purposed furniture, making it delightful to spend some time inside with a delicious cup of coffee. You’ll also find a wonderful park between the Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge just two blocks from the café, so on a hot day you can take your (iced) coffee to go and enjoy it in the park with an amazing view of the Manhattan skyline. The second location of the Brooklyn Roasting Company can be found on Flushing Avenue & Washington Avenue, and is another wonderful spacious café that serves equally great coffee!” Read the entire list here.
