Brooklyn’s Gowanus neighborhood just gained a new specialty coffee café and a roaster… at the same time! Abbotsford Road Coffee Specialists is now open for business, serving their very own Aussie inspired blends and single origin coffees. The coffee is roasted on premises, making it some of the freshest coffee NYC has to offer!
Beyond their café, they hope to use the new roasting space for education, events, and a local wholesale experience for other cafés around NYC and beyond.
Couch Sessions was invited to celebrate Abbotsford Road Coffee Specialists’ Ribbon cutting with founder Phillip Di Bella. Back in 2002, Phillip founded Di Bella Coffee outside Brisbane, Australia, and has since developed a wide network of coffee farmers, innovators, and his own roasters. Attendees were greeted with other Gowanas favorites such as Crustinis and Crab Cakes from Freeks Mill. Abbotsford Road Coffee Specialists baristas were on hand to explain their new menu and make plenty of evening pour-overs. Included in their arsenal was an exclusive Geisha varietal, so we were sure to try it!
Be sure to come by Abbotsford Road Coffee Specialists at 573 Sackett Street, Gowanus, NY, and follow them on Instagram!
