BRC Listed as One of the 25 Best Roasters In America

We were proud to be awarded a spot on Men’s Journal‘s list of 25 Best Coffee Roasters In America!  To quote the article: “Along with attracting arts- and tech-minded professionals of Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood with its wide open space and attachment to an alternative bookstore, BRC brings in the coffee lovers for their commitment to bringing Fair Trade, Rainforest Alliance, and Organic certified and sustainable coffees to a variety of New York palates. All beans are roasted in small batches in a Loring Kestrel 1/2 bag roaster, yielding such varieties as the salted caramel-sweet Peru High Grown Andes, a personal favorite.” Check out the rest of the article here.
