We live in Astoria and our goal is to provide a comfortable space to hang out with neighbors over great coffee, tea, and food. We want to be a part of art, culture, and community happenings in the neighborhood.
Our goal from the beginning was to open a coffee shop, but this venture started as a whole bean delivery service inspired by our neighbors who were eager for a steady supply of great coffee in Astoria before we opened a brick and mortar shop. We're incredibly grateful for the early enthusiasm and owe it all to the wonderful community of residents and business owners in Astoria.
We're thankful for all of your support and interest, and flattered that the following people have taken the time to write about our story in working towards Astoria Coffee:
