Today, Stumptown Coffee Roasters opened a coffee bar in a warehouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn. 219 Van Brunt Street at Commerce Street, no telephone. Open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In Ristretto, Oliver Strand, the author of The Filter, a guide to New York coffee from The New York Times, explores the world of coffee gadgets, coffee beans and why it’s never been easier to get a cortado.

True coffee nuts will be skipping the line at the Stumptown Coffee Roasters in the Ace Hotel and heading to Red Hook, Brooklyn, where the company’s new coffee bar opened today. For a tour, watch our slide show.

New Stumptown Coffee Bar

Coffee enthusiasts in the neighborhood were undoubtedly thrilled last week when Stumptown Coffee Roasters, located at 219 Van Brunt Street, opened it’s new coffee bar and store inside the roastery, or maybe they were just hopped up on caffeine. After opening less than two years ago in a warehouse in Red Hook, Stumptown quickly became a Brooklyn favorite and was being sold in several local restaurants and cafes.

While you may not be able to purchase a mocha frappuccino, cappuccino, or even a simple espresso at the new bar, it’s all about the excellent quality cup of coffee that shouldn’t be covered with syrups and flavors. Owner Duane Sorenson recently stated in the NY Times that they will be “putting the focus on the bag of coffee and showing our customers how to brew that coffee correctly,” There are so many options to choose from with over 35 beans and several brewing methods, including French Press and Chemex. So you can experiment with different sustainable varieties, learn how you prefer to brew your cup, and then buy your bags of whole beans, which come written with very detailed descriptions, and coffee-making gear all in the same place!

For more information stay tuned to their website, www.wp.stumptowncoffee.com/. Hours and details aren’t up yet but we imagine they should be soon.
