The final round of the Best of Gay City Readers’ Choice Contest is complete and the winners are in.
Irving Farm Coffee Roasters got their start in the mid-1990s as a small café located near Union Square. They loved coffee — and decided the best way to show their love was to roast it themselves. Today, they do just that — near the Hudson Valley town of Millerton, located where the Catskills meet the Berkshires.
The farm’s output allows the company to sell retail online, welcome wholesales partners, and serve by the cup at three Manhattan cafés — in Grand Central and on the Lower East and Upper West Sides — in addition to their original home on Irving Place. A special treat for the true aficionado, however, may be Irving Farm’s Flatiron Training Lab on 20th Street where baristas are trained and quality control research is carried out. Check out the Irving Farm Coffee’s Facebook page for when the lab is open to the public, and to order online, visit irvingfarm.com.
