Parlor was founded in 2012 with a single-group espresso machine in the back of a barbershop and a dream to roast New York’s finest coffee. Today they supply coffee to cafés, restaurants, and home brewers across the globe from their roastery on the edge of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Parlor advocates for producers and fosters transparent relationships with the same commitment that drives their pursuit of consistency in roasting excellence.
