Gotham Dark Roast

This New York City favorite is a great representation of its namesake, full of dark menacing flavor enveloped in a soft smoke and slightly spicy finish. Gotham is our interpretation of a French roast style, for those who prefer the serious depth and grit of heavy roast flavors.

The secret to a coffee like this is in the roast. Our roaster has worked tirelessly to find the perfect way to balance the development of the coffee bean during roasting in order to achieve just the right amount of spice and smoke without being overpowering. Hitting that dark, sweet spot is a balancing act of flame, air, and time —- too much or too little and you simply have burnt beans. Another trick is to use harder, more dense coffees, which are better able to stand up to this type of roasting. We could not be more pleased with the way these coffees come together in this celebration of the roasting craft.1-gotham-dark-roast.jpg

    This blend is rich and wonderful. It used to be all that I bought until I branched out and started trying single origins. But...it is still one of my favorites!

    Gotham Roast Hits the Perfect Bold Pitch

    Without being bitter or overbearing, Gotham is our coffee of hands down favorite. It is strong, bold, hearty but not bitter or harsh. We brew it for guests all the time to rave reviews and have some friends who stop just stop in for coffee.

    71 Irving used to be my favorite, but Gotham Dark has taken over. Even better than what I thought was the perfect coffee!

    Gotham dark roast coffee has become my "go to" cup each morning. It has a rich, full flavor that's on the strong side, but still very easy to drink. I'd recommend it--you can't go wrong!



Micro-lots:

Available for limited times in small quantities, our carefully curated micro-lots are single origin coffees at their purest. Not only are the beans sourced from one farm, they're sourced from one micro-lot of land on that farm, ensuring a highly consistent flavor and experience. This is a wonderful way to sample the true, amazing potential of coffee. We've selected these lots despite their small quantity because we see something in them that's truly special--and we think you will, too.

Single Origins:

True to their name, single origin coffees consist of beans sourced from a farm or community in one, specific region. Seasonal selections from around the world, our line of single origin coffees focuses on the highest quality product from coffee producers who take their work as seriously as we do.

Blends:

Handcrafted from exceptional single origin coffees, our signature blends are carefully developed in our Hudson Valley roastery to please drinkers day after day, year round.

Offering exceptional flavor to coffee lovers who prefer to go without the caffeine, our Decaf selections stay true to taste with carefully blended, naturally water-processed decaffeinated coffees.
