Rooftop Cold Brew Tasting in NYC - Ally Coffee Merchants
Last week Ally Coffee hosted an interactive farm tour and blind cold brew tasting competition at the one-acre rooftop urban farm Brooklyn Grange in Long Island City, Queens. 

The tour was immediately hands on, with roasters, baristas, family members, and everyone else getting down to work staking young pepper plants to prevent uprooting in the strong winds the roof receives. The produce grown on the farm is sold in weekly local farmers markets to raise money to support the educational program, City Growers, the farm operates to teach local youth about sustainable agriculture.

Farm level visits for coffee almost always involve a plane ride and a passport, so the event allowed for a unique way to overlap agriculture and coffee drinking in the middle of the nation's busiest city.

After a few brave participants tilled the compost used to manage farm waste and feed new plants, everyone settled in for the blind cold brew tasting. Five local cold brew companies and one barista submitted cold brews to the challenge. Everyone voted for their favorite, electing Brooklyn Cold Brew, roasted and brewed by founder and owner Steve Gorman the winner! In second place was Southdown Coffee of Huntington Long Island, with a brew roasted and prepared by Mark Boccard.

Sunshine, skyline, delicious coffee and a little dirt under the nails have us convinced that it is officially summer. Happy cold brew season from the team at Ally Coffee!
