NYC Craft Coffee Festival's Participating Roasters:
Sourcing, roasting, brewing and serving great coffee is the reason why we exist as a business. From our early days serving a selection of coffees from roasters around the country to our growth into roasting our own coffee in-house. From introducing single-cup brewing to our Chelsea customers in 2006 to maintaining an approachable seasonal coffee menu. From keeping things simple with a focus on quality…The end of our journey is serving you a delicious and socially responsible cup – highlighting the nuances inherent in the coffee. Letting the coffee speak for itself. Keeping our brand strong but subtle.

In 2006, Champion Coffee was founded in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Beans are roasted in Queens and proudly served at 142 Nassau Avenue and 1107 Manhattan Avenue, both in Greenpoint. We love what happens when you put great coffee and great people together! And it's our 10 year birthday this year!
We source 100% traceable coffee from exclusive micro-lot farms in Colombia using only the highest-quality non-GMO and heirloom varietals from nearly inaccessible zones. We are the only company to offer truly farm fresh coffee with every cup, going from farm to roast within 10-30 days without the coffee ever leaving our hands. Our personal relationship with every farmer also allows us to oversee the entire coffee cultivation process and ensure economic and environmental sustainability to unprecedented levels.
Dona Chai is Brooklyn’s chai tea concentrate. Our tea is handcrafted in small batches using fresh ginger, vanilla bean, freshly ground cinnamon, green cardamom, cloves, black peppercorns, and organic black tea. The slow steeping process builds complexity of flavor and preserves the purity of our ingredients. The result is a cup of bold and flavorful chai tea - fresh. natural, and Brooklyn-made.
Gimme! Coffee began in 2000 as an espresso bar in Ithaca’s Fall Creek neighborhood and opened a small-batch roastery the following year.

Left Hand Coffee from Montauk came to exist under the notion that culture is a result of like minded people who share experiences, values, beliefs and symbols. We share the idea of having nice things, to read, love, cook, create art and so forth. We apply this philosophy in our coffee blends and brews, from roasting all the way to the cup.
It has been nearly thirty years and we are still doing the same thing we did in 1986--only better. That is, finding the best green coffee in the world, roasting it to perfection in our very special roaster every weekday, and bringing it fresh to you.
"As a local Long Islander and musician, I had the tremendous opportunity of touring the globe for many years. With many long nights on the road, a morning coffee shop was routine. One of my more recent tours through Central America and a trip to Colombia sparked more than a mere appreciation for a caffeine buzz. Tasting and educating myself about coffee from various regions throughout my travels was an eye opener as to what top quality coffee tastes like. I wanted to bring that same intense flavor and passion back to my native New York and began crafting my own premium single origin roasts, blends, and signature Cold Brew. Anchored on its slogan, "Live Young", Sail Away pairs its free-spirited approach to flavor with a well traveled palate." - Christopher Vetter, Founder.
Sweetleaf’s approach has been to buy the best beans possible and brew them on the most cutting edge equipment in the world. Our philosophy on brewing is a blend of art and science. Walk into any of our shops and you will see scales everywhere we brew coffee, including on the espresso machine! On any given day you will see us using our refractometer to measure total dissolved solids in our coffees or software to show us our extraction percentages. Yes, we get real geeky, but we also remember that the art is knowing how to make coffee taste extraordinary. Science is what helps us repeat it.
