Do you live on or near Long Island and want to drink locally roasted coffee from Long Island Coffee Roasters? I’ve already shared my Guide to the Best Long Island Coffee Shops, but roasting the coffee is even more of an artform. It takes skill, dedication, and love of the craft to really be a great coffee roaster. And anyone that puts that much effort into getting a better quality, more flavorful bean in my hands is someone I want to not only support…but maybe hug and become friends with. You know?
Brewing coffee at home is such a rewarding activity and can easily turn into obsession (the good kind). It saves you money, it’s therapeutic and fun to experiment with brewing methods, and it allows you to find your perfect cup of coffee (because nobody knows your preferences better than you). But, as any coffee lover knows, great coffee isn’t really about brewing; it starts with high-quality green beans and the right roasting technique, which brings out the best in each bean.

If you’ve never been to Aldo’s, but you have drunk coffee at such restaurants as Noah’s, The Frisky Lobster, First & South, or The North Fork Table & Inn, then you’ve enjoyed Aldo’s coffee without even realizing it.
A small-batch roaster and an artisan bakery since 1987, Aldo’s offers you certified organic coffee beans that are roasted no more than 24 hours before the delivery. The coffee comes in 16 ounces bags that can last up to a week for two people or two weeks for one person. Aldo himself handpicks and sources the beans for their characteristics, and the blends he creates are unique and unforgettable. But his genius doesn’t apply to coffee roasting only; do try his famous biscotti and scones if you haven’t yet. The combination of his biscotti and coffee opens a whole new world for your taste buds.
To experience this, visit Aldo’s cafe in Greenport or order his delicious products online. Aldo has one of the biggest personalities of the Long Island coffee roasters…which I am all about!

One of the older Long Island coffee roasters, established in 1994, Hampton Coffee is an expert in all things coffee.

They hand roast their coffee in small batches every day to ensure their retail and wholesale customers receive the freshest.

Tend Coffee began as a solution to a coffee problem. One of the owners, Daniel Kennedy, couldn’t find coffee that could deliver the sweet roastiness that he needed for his caramel espresso.

Tend Coffee has grown a lot a decade later: now it has two Long Island coffee shops, and its products are available at multiple Farmers’ Markets.
