eleva coffee

a flagship for a community-driven coffee business

Eleva Coffee is a direct trade coffee business that sources from a network of coffee farmers across Ethiopia, Nicaragua and Guatemala that makes it a point to invest and contribute to the communities it connects. Beyond a wholesale and direct to consumer home brewing business, they have a flagship cafe in Greenpoint

Perhaps because it is tucked away at the tip of Brooklyn within a new development and away from the commercial bustle of Greenpoint Ave, it’s never too crowded, making it the perfect low key environment to work. Which is a rare luxury in this town. With a wide selection of drinks, ample natural light and free wifi, bookmark this for an afternoon of remote working.
