Gothamist just released their list of The 16 Best Coffee Shops In NYC and Brooklyn Roasting Company is honored to be a part of the list.  BRC was honored as Best Local Brew noting that our cafe “offers up fierce brews out of a capacious warehouse… blends like Columbia Santa Barbara, Guat Antigua and Iris Espresso stand strong with nothing more than a dash of milk, though you won’t be disappointed with, say, a cortado, for instance.” They also noted our locations at 200 Flushing Av, West Elm Dumbo and 50 23rd Street in the Flatiron district.  Read the rest of the article here.
