The Brooklyn Roasting Company was founded in 2009 by Jim Munson with one clear goal in mind: To provide NYC with best quality, sustainably-sourced coffees roasted to perfection and presented to consumers unpretentiously. Today, BRC is New York’s leading homegrown coffee roasting company, servicing hundreds of high-end wholesale accounts across the 5 boroughs and operating a handful of connoisseur-quality cafes.
Located in the historic Brooklyn Navy Yard, our production headquarters in Building 123 was originally built in 1899 as an industrial powerplant. With soaring, sixty foot ceilings and brick walls that are two feet thick, our East River waterfront facility houses state-of-the-art commercial roast, pack, and quality control departments. We are proud that Building 123 was the first LEED-certified building in the Navy Yard. Our commitments to sustainable packaging (tin steel cans and recyclable wholesale delivery totes), fuel efficient industrial roasting technology (Loring Peregrine and Kestrel roasters), and green coffee sourcing aimed at transparency and sustainability (90% of our coffees are Fair Trade certified) exemplify our ethical approach to business.
Our 120-year-old Brooklyn Navy Yard headquarters & roasting facility is about as close as you get to incredibly cool—especially if you love coffee.
We offer memorable field trips, group cuppings… you name it! We also open our space for one-of-a-kind private events. Because, YES: everything from a corporate holiday party to a birthday celebration for that special coffee fanatic is more fun at an enormous shipyard roastery. Events are fully customizable, and no idea is too big!
