BBCR works with farmers around the world to maintain the quality of their coffee and we/they promise you to find the real taste of a good coffee in every single cup you take. Our go to? Their Latte, with a little brown sugar spread on the top!

Williamsburg Devocion


The freshest Colombian coffee in town. With a true devotion to sustainability, these locally roasted coffee beans take you straight to the heart of Colombia. Devoción’s goal is to produce quality coffee in a responsible manner, and it works! Our advice? Stop by their Williamsburg location to enjoy a nice coffee under their pergola with a book or to work remotely. It’s a very cool, quiet and pleasant place to unwind from the NYC tornado.

Birch Coffee

Birch Coffee

One of the best – in fact, we’re tempted to say THE BEST – coffee roasters in Manhattan. Birch Coffee takes full advantage of the city life to serve New Yorkers great tasting, roasted coffee every day. Jeremy and Paul are the owners and are eager to offer New Yorkers a way to start the day other than with their phones – our little secret? We highly recommend their hot chocolate (they also make it cold if you ask with a nice smile), chocolate lovers? Please enjoy!
