BRC is proud to be a part of CityGuide NY‘s list of best seasonal coffees for our Maple Shay. To quote the article, “Maple syrup in November? Say no more. Brooklyn Roasting Company’s Maple Shay mixes your favorite pancake topping with espresso and steamed milk. BRC has many shops in the city now, but we recommend the airplane hangar-ish one in DUMBO for the ultimate Brooklyn coffee experience.” Read the full post here.
Mashed.com took a look at things your barista wishes you knew and caught up with BRC’s Jim Munson for his take. Jim told them “we wish our customers knew that during busy times things might take longer. We want to make you happy, not frustrated. We want to make your taste buds happy and that takes time, especially with the more complicated drinks.” Read the rest of the article here.
The holiday season is in full swing and Treehugger posted a Green Gift Guide featuring Brooklyn Roasting Company’s Fair Trade Sampler, which “offers three superb coffees for the discerning connoisseur” and is available this holiday season at the price of $40. Read the full article here.
Brooklyn Roasting Company is donating 10% of November’s web sales to 350.org’s climate change activism efforts. Coffee and the world’s climate are deeply intertwined, and, as a company, BRC aims to participate in efforts to support the sustainability our planet’s ecosystem. Just as we did on National Coffee Day and at our recent Halloween Bash, November’s donation is just one step we are taking to support climate change awareness.
From 7-11pm, join us for music, dancing and more! A $20 suggested donation includes entry and drinks, with proceeds donated to hurricane relief. Costumes required.
Earlier in the day, children’s festivities begin for all ages! We will gather at 25 Jay Street for a ‘March to the Arch’ with prizes for the best costumes, music and festivities under the DUMBO Archway. More information on that TBA.
Hope to see you there!
