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.

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.
