BRC named Best Local Brew by Gothamist

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.

You’re Invited to our Halloween Events

Brooklyn Roasting Company is proud to invite you to two Halloween events at our locations this week!



We’ve once again teamed up with the DUMBO BID to bring a full-filled afternoon to the children of DUMBO.  We’ll gather at 4:30pm at Brooklyn Roasting Company’s 25 Jay Street cafe for storytelling, candy, apple cider and a costume contest.  Then, we’ll parade to the DUMBO archway where Halloween crafts and fun await.


Witches, vampires, goblins, zombies, mummies, ghosts and characters of all sorts… you are all welcome to join us for our 5th Annual Halloween Costume Ball at 25 Jay Street at 7pm on October 31!  Get ready for a ghoulish time with free boos and beers, apple bobbing and dancing until the clock strikes 11pm.  Dress your best!


September Coffee of the Month: 3D

We’ve chosen our eye-popping 3D blend as September’s Coffee of the Month.  A rich blend of our Fair Trade Mexico, naturally processed Brazil Sítio São Geraldo and high grown Colombia Santa Barbara, 3D offers a dimension of taste not known to the common coffee blend.  Deep and dark, with subtle spice and prominent notes of blood orange and roasted walnut, 3D is a fan favorite often served on bar at our cafe locations.  Throughout the month of September, you can purchase 3D for $1 off both online and in our cafes.

Brooklyn Roasting Company Featured on Fodor’s List of Brooklyn’s Best Coffee Shops

DSC_0971Fodor’s Travel compiled a list of the Best Coffee Shops in Brooklyn, and we are honored to have made the list.  “Artfully disheveled staffers brew coffee from fair-trade and rainforest alliance-certified beans, while local gallerists and start-up techies flirt over perfectly poured cortados and other beverages at this café adjacent to the East River. The loft-style, industrial space is filled with antique roasting equipment and ample seating. There are pastries and sandwiches as well.”  Read the article here.

Brooklyn Magazine Profiles BRC’s Nitro Cold Brew


Brooklyn Magazine‘s Marcy Franklin took the trip across the river to our new cafe at 50 W. 23rd Street in the Flatiron district of Manhattan to try out our Nitro Cold Brew.  It’s safe to say she was impressed!

“…I may have found my ultimate cold brew, made by the good people at Brooklyn Roasting Company–that is, when I find myself across the river in Manhattan.

…So what is it? At Brooklyn Roasting, it’s a Sumatran cold brew treated to the nitrogen gas tank, giving it that soft, bubbly mouthfeel and creamy texture–not totally unlike a pull of Guinness at the bar. The nitrogen pushes the cold brew through the taps in a similar fashion to a draught beer, which explains the cascading, foamy head to the coffee…It’s extra smooth and takes some of the acidic edge off my regular cold brew–no need for milk. I took a sip, and relaxed. This is the kind of cold brew I could get used to.”
