Supercrown Coffee Roasters
Liz Clayman Supercrown Coffee Roasters

It’s been 13 years since Darleen Scherer founded Gorilla Coffee, heralding the gospel of sustainable, single-origin bean sourcing and brainy brewing methods. Having sold her portion of that venture, Scherer is going solo with this 1,700-square-foot java shop, anchored by a restored 1952 Probat UG-22 roaster. Below expansive skylights in the white-washed café, the brew maven crafts coffees both traditional (pour-overs, lattes) and playful, like an Ample Hills ice-cream-fortified coffee milkshake and a Cherry Bomb, blasting espresso with soda and cherry juice. Coffee geeks can catch the action in the open-format facility located behind the shop and subscribe for weekly coffee packages.

Supercrown has everything that you want in a Bushwick coffee spot - perfectly made coffee, space to bring your computer to write, and, of course, an Instagram-worthy interior.  If you appreciate a well-crafted java, spending time in Supercrown Coffee Roasters is worth it.  The space is incredibly open so at the entrance, you get plenty of sunlight pouring in and in the back is their massive roasting machine, which is incredibly transfixing to watch in action. Definitely worth stopping into on your way to work or before a night out!

A single succulent in a small terra cotta pot sits on each of the hi-top tables. There are two thin, windowsill bar tops and a largely open, clean space with brick walls. The setting is very urban/industrial with contemporary vibes. The skylight up above let’s in a beautiful amount of light (I’m obsessed with natural light).  It’s a mainly black and white aesthetic with the main way-back wall being a shade of Pepto Bismol pink. There’s an open back room with the huge coffee roaster machine (?), which I have no idea what it actually is… troubling. On the barista counter, the coffee grinder is bright pink and the espresso machine is a bright cobalt blue that reminds me of a car from the 1950s.

That unknown machine in the back is LOUD – sounds and looks like an industrial size vacuum. Whatever it is… It smells awesome in here. I can’t quite focus on anything aside from that noise so maybe this is not the best for concentrating or bringing your laptop. Although a man across from me is doing that.

At Supecrown I’m sipping on a coffee milkshake, which was $6. I would have paid $10 for it because it’s really that good. AND Milkshakes are my favorite drink. They serve bialy’s from Roberta’s (a local restaurant in Bushwick that’s super hyped for their pizzas).

Supercrown is probs a really cool date place if you’re the type that dates during the hours of 7AM-7PM. But weekends are always an option. And coffee is always good for a first date instead of alcohol. Although I’m pretty sure they make alcoholic coffee beverages – which could be a bonus. Lots of cute people waking in and out of storefront and ordering beverages to go. I'd recommend it!
