Hey everyone, we wanted to write to thank you, for all of your kind thoughts and messages of support over the last few days. Most importantly, all of our NYC employees are safe. In addition to the outpouring of love we’ve received, we would like to extend our thoughts to everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy.
As many of you know, the Red Hook neighborhood in Brooklyn, home to our NYC roasting operations, was among the hardest hit in New York. The roastery was indeed impacted, but everyone on our NYC staff is hard at work, doing everything possible to support all of our wholesale customers that are currently open, and helping others to resume coffee service as soon as possible. In addition, the Manhattan Cafe at the Ace Hotel is open for business, currently operating at limited 9-5 hours.
The Red Hook community and the many amazing businesses that call it home are banding together, supporting each other in every way possible. Without this, efforts in the neighborhood would not be happening as quickly as they currently are.
Our Stumptown family in Portland has been indispensable in offering much-needed roasting and production support from the west coast. The level of teamwork happening right now is truly awesome!
We will know a lot more over the coming week and promise to be in touch. In the meantime, warmest wishes and best regards.
