Booklyn, NY founded in 1998
Partners Coffee is a local New York coffee roaster with a flagship cafe and roastery located in the heart of Brooklyn, established in 2012 originally as Toby's Estate. After seven years of building the Williamsburg-based roastery and cafe chain, the founders Adam and Amber decided to venture out and create their own independent brand we now know as Partners Coffee. Partners operates their own direct trade sourcing program and hired green buyer Jonathan Withers who not only sources the beans but creates Partners' signature blends. With a dedication to third wave practices, Partners is focused on driving towards their sustainability pledge as well as direct trade, traceability, and fair pricing. Just like their namesake, partnerships are key to achieving the company’s vision, going beyond direct trade partnerships with farms and extending the concept of “Partners” to include baristas, roasters, businesses and customers. It’s this approach that makes Partners unique and allows them to roast some of the best coffees on the market today.
