Starbucks Just Opened a Giant Roastery in This City

You won’t believe your eyes when you see the inside of this place!

If you haven’t been to the original Starbucks in Seattle, or seen the giant roastery in Chicago, never fear! One for East Coasters is finally here. Starbucks has officially released a Starbucks Reserve Roastery in New York City! Sounds like it’s time for a trip to the Big Apple very soon.

Here’s what you need to know

Starbucks opened up this new roastery in the meatpacking district in Manhattan, located at 61 9th Avenue between 15th and 16th St. The roastery takes up 23,000 square feet (which, if you didn’t already know this, is a lot of space for an NYC retail space). According to the Starbucks press release, this roastery follows openings in Seattle, Shanghai and Milan. Starbucks will officially open the much anticipated Chicago roastery in 2019.

“New York is a hub to the world,” says Liz Muller, chief design officer of Starbucks. “It’s an unbelievable place with such history. The meatpacking district has a fantastic history of industry, and the neighborhood has an electric energy; it is alive. We’ve designed a space where the excitement and dynamic activity of the neighborhood is mirrored in the Roastery.”

What’s inside?

Inside the roastery, you will find two coffee bars as well as a plethora of delicious food. Both coffee bars serve seven different brewing methods: Pour over, Chemex, coffee press, siphon, espresso, Clover and cold brewing. (See the pros and cons of each brewing method.) The coffee bar on the main level crafts classic espresso drinks including cappuccinos, lattes, cortados and even a whiskey barrel-aged cold brew.

The other coffee bar is called the Arriviamo Bar. It’s an Italian-inspired craft cocktail bar making its debut in the U.S. This cocktail bar has expert mixologists to serve cocktails featuring coffee and tea. One of their featured drinks is a Nocino Notte made with cold brew coffee, barrel-aged gin and black truffle salt.

Along with these two coffee bars, Starbucks also opened up a Milanese boutique bakery called Princi, which is named for the founder Rocco Princi. This bakery makes fresh bread, pizza, cornetti, focaccia and even desserts right on site.
