New Yorkers can now enjoy Vita next to a 25-foot waterfall waterfall at Birdbath Bakery, located in Greenacre Park on the Upper East Side.

One of Manhattan’s cherished “vest-pocket parks,” Greenacre Park was built in 1971 to provide urbanites with “some moments of serenity in this busy world.”

Birdbath Bakery is serving our Farm Direct Guatemalan, crisp and well-balanced with a chocolate aroma and hints of citrus and roasted hazelnuts. Perfect for a quick oasis escape in the middle of the city.

Thank You, SCAA!

Thanks to everyone who visited us at the Specialty Coffee Association of America’s 24th annual expo this past weekend! We had a great time showing off our skills, making new contacts and seeing old friends. More photos of the expo are on their way, but for now enjoy this shot of Noah holding it down on the new UCC Bonmac siphon light box, above.
