Welcome to City Brewed. We’re all about celebrating the life that happens over coffee: morning rituals, fresh-brewed inspiration, and taking a peek inside cafes near and far.

"Coffee is the best thing to douse the sunrise with." - Terri Guillemets

It may seem like a small sight, but rounding a corner to see space after space occupied by perfectly industrial coffee shops is more than my little heart could handle. The coffee lover in me was in all its glory. See, we had been in a car for approximately 47 minutes without coffee, which is approximately 46 minutes too long to go without. 

Brooklyn Roasting Company is one of those coffee shops you see in the movies. The one where seat after seat is occupied by the usual coffee shop goers: the trendy writer, the photographer editing a slew of photos, the transplant-New Yorker video chatting home, and the catchup date happening between a group of girlfriends. The coffee shop you can't help but want to stay for hours. Writing, reading, daydreaming.
