Café Life | The R&I Guide to the Best Coffee Shops in Brooklyn

  DUMBO  |   The Brooklyn Roasting Plant   (and below)   

Well, this story has been a long time coming! If you follow ROSE & IVY on Instagram (and if you don't please do!) I frequent a lot of coffee shops and I would be lying if I didn't say what attracts me is not only a perfectly poured cortado, but also a cafe that's design is on point.  Furthermore, the majority of these favorites sustainably and responsibly source their beans and roast them making for a perfect cup every time.  Here are my personal favorites that I frequent again and again.  Cheers!

Editors Note: A lot of coffee was consumed, mostly decaf so nobody was hurt:)
