Today, we are so conscious of where our food comes from. At Corporate Essentials, we believe that this consciousness should extend not only to the snacks and beverages we consume at home, but to the snacks and beverages we consume at the office. That’s why we pride ourselves in offering locally roasted coffee.
Irving Farm Coffee Roasters
Proudly roasting since 1999.
Irving Farm was founded in Manhattan in 1996 in a little cafe space near Union Square, still known simply as 71 Irving Place. Irving Farm’s founders soon realized that to deliver a truly craft-focused, hands-on approach to their love of coffee, they’d have to roast it, too.
In 1999, the founders transformed a farm in the Hudson Valley into a roasting facility. The country roastery and the city cafe meet in the name: Irving Farm. Set at the foot of the Catskills and the Berkshires, in the historic Coleman Station district near the town of Millerton is the same region whose lush dairy farms were once the main supplier of milk to New York City in the 1800s.
Nowadays, Irving Farm supplies carefully selected, handcrafted coffees to cafes across Manhattan, as well as their coffee house in Millerton, keeping the focus on sustainability and building direct relationships with the coffee farmers who grow the beautiful coffees that both the country and the city love so much.
Sourcing, roasting, brewing and serving great coffee.
From their early days serving a selection of coffees from roasters around the country to their growth into roasting their own coffee in-house. From introducing single-cup brewing to their Chelsea customers in 2006 to maintaining an approachable seasonal coffee menu.
From keeping things simple with a focus on quality…the end of the Cafe Grumpy journey is serving you a delicious and socially responsible cup – highlighting the nuances inherent in the coffee. Letting the coffee speak for itself. Keeping the Cafe Grumpy brand strong but subtle.
Founder of the infamous MUDTRUCK.
Since they started selling coffee to New York City from their first MUDTRUCK in 2001, MUD Coffee has established itself as the city’s “everyman” coffee. MUD Coffee is an East Village, New York City-based coffee company that started by selling its own blend out of a converted Consolidated Edison step-van known as the MUDTRUCK.
The MUDTRUCK can usually be found on weekdays parked by Astor Place. MUD Coffee has expanded its offerings over the years to include brunch, beer, wine and bike parking! They now serve their roasts at MUDPARK and the MUDSPOT Restaurant in the East Village, NYC.
