Black Press Coffee is a specialty coffee shop with a simple mission: awesome coffee and great service.
The nuances that help define a great coffee are attributed to a complex chain of events that begins with the farmer and ends with the barista. We constantly sample coffees from different farmers, providing you with a carefully curated selection from the producers who share our passion for quality.
We partner with Parlor Coffee, our roaster in Brooklyn, to bring the best coffee that we can to the heart of New York. Our coffee is wicked good.
why are we called Black Press?
We derive our name from the Black Press, a group of publications, newspapers and magazines that disseminated ideas and accomplishments within underrepresented and aggrieved communities that were barred from mainstream channels of discourse such as the mainstream media.
The Black Press played a dual role, serving as purveyors of news and information and as agents of social change. Like the Black Press, we aim to provide a safe, inclusive and affirming environment with great coffee and amazing service.
