About Manhattan Roasts

Welcome to Manhattan Roasts.

About the author:   Manhattan Roaster is a mid-20s lawyer in New York City.  A coffee lover, but not a cofffee snob, he has a great appreciation for everything from cart-coffee to a delicately roasted, freshly ground, and meticulously brewed ristretto.  He grew up on Starbucks drinks, but has since shifted to roasting his own coffee (starting with delicious green coffee beans) for press pot and espresso brewing.

This site is designed to give you information about happenings in the coffee world, as well as a glimpse into the Roaster’s own experiences roasting, brewing, and drinking coffee around the city and around the world.
