My friend Taylor now serves his Crop to Cup coffee in (on?) New York City's newest park, the elevated train tracks on the West Side that have been converted into a long, skinny, walkable green park, the Highline.
This Sunday he's having a free coffee giveaway. Crop to Cup is a New York-based company that specializes in Ugandan coffee. Taylor and his partner got the idea for the business while living in Uganda a few years ago. If you haven't seen the Highline yet, here's your excuse....
Taylor's announcement: The “Crop to Cup Free for All” party is set for Sunday, to celebrate the recent launch of Crop to Cup Coffee Co.’s new café up on the Highline. This Sunday, August 16, from 4pm to 6pm, we will lock away our cash box and dish out free coffee and chocolate drinks to all. Revelers will be able to choose from our signature hot and iced coffees, iced chocolate (from our own homemade ganache) and hot or iced mochas (also made with our ganache). All dairy will be from our friends at Basis Farm to Chef and Battenkill Valley Creamery.
As always, Crop to Cup is your NYC-roasted source for the best in farmer-direct single origin coffees and trace-your-impact sustainability. By supporting family farmers in Uganda and elsewhere, as well as sustainability-focused dairy farms in our own backyard, we’re doing our very best to help reinvent the food system the world depends on.
So, please come join Crop to Cup and delicious farm products - from Uganda to Upstate - as we party it up at the super cool Highline park. Our new 29-day café (lasts until Sept 6) is the perfect spot to spend the afternoon, with amazing views of the river, spectacular architecture of the neighborhood’s old warehouse buildings, and of course the beautiful Highline park. Stay for the sunset – our west-facing view over the Hudson is the best in the city!
