BRC Among the Top 10 Coffee Shops in New York City, According to New York Habitat

coffee-shop-nyc-new-york-brooklyn-roasting-companyNew 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.
