Abbotsford Road Coffee Specialists

If you can’t make it to Brooklyn, Abbotsford Road products are sold online.

New York City has become a mecca for coffee lovers. From my apartment in Carroll Gardens in Brooklyn I can walk to at least 10 spots to get a good cup—and that’s just in one neighborhood. Yet, I’m always excited when a new place opens up. As soon as I heard about Abbotsford Road Coffee Specialists, I walked over to check it out—and I recommend you do the same if you’re in the area.

Founded by Phillip di Bella, the 2016 Golden Bean Champion, Abbotsford Road Coffee Specialists is proving to be another bright light in NYC’s caffeinated world. Their ethically-sourced coffee beans are ground on site in the airy, industrial space where you can order a coffee and linger at one of the café tables.

Abbotsford Road Coffee Specialists is located in an industrial space in Brooklyn.

If you’re not close by and aren’t visiting Brooklyn, but still want to taste the stellar beans, you can have Abbotsford Road Coffee’s Brooklyn-roasted coffee and syrups delivered.

I make lattes at home on my Jura espresso machine and love using forza beans and vanilla syrup to sweeten it.
