Brooklyn Roasting Company is pleased to announce a partnership with JetBlue to bring delicious hand-roasted, sustainably-certified espresso to unprecedented new heights. Beginning in early 2015, BRC will supply espresso for JetBlue’s new Mint service. We will be providing top-notch barista training to JetBlue flight attendants so you will be able to order a macchiato, cappuccino or cortado on par with those served at our cafes. JetBlue senior vice president Marty St. George spoke last week about providing food and beverages from our borough for the new premium-class service, stating “we’re officially another Brooklyn hipster.” Raise a cup with us toward the sky! For more details, check out the Wall Street Journal article highlighting the partnership.
We’ve chosen our Bespoke Blend as our Coffee of the Month for November. A balanced combination of bright, lemony Guatemala Antigua and rich, buttery Colombian Santa Barbara beans, it was as an homage to the virtuous vélo and in recognition of National Bike Month. This blend was created with the NYC Bike Ambassadors as our inspiration. Both the Antigua and Santa Barbara estates are acknowledged for their commitment to sustainability and environmental awareness – something we cyclists are conscious of too. Join us this month in raising a mug to NYC bicycling community. The Bespoke Blend is $1 off on the site and in cafes all month long.
