Two years ago today, we began by serving espresso in the back room of a barbershop in Brooklyn. The greater part of the previous months were spent building out the small space and its moving parts between other jobs and the summer heat. Fall arrived and so did Parlor Coffee. A week later, Hurricane Sandy hit and the city went dark. What started as a pop-up shop, roasting after hours in a shared space uptown and delivering to our handful of wholesale accounts by taxi has grown by great effort, support and fortune. Parlor now has its own roastery and coffee is distributed throughout the city in a van of our own. It truly feels like a luxury we earned the hard way. The past two years have brought much change and steady growth for Parlor and everyone involved. When we look back on the past two years we are humbled by the growth, and the commitment and enthusiasm of everyone who has been a part of Parlor.
