Toby’s Estate has opened its second production roastery in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, alongside a new cafe space with seating for 40, a daily brunch menu and a pourover bar outfitted by Saint Anthony Industries.
The New York arm of the Australian-born brand created by Sydney native Toby Smith in 2001 is co-owned by Amber Jacobsen and Adam Boyd, who first opened a Toby’s Estate roastery cafe in Williamsburg in 2012.
Since then, Toby’s Estate has opened four other retail bars throughout Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens, with a temporarily closed Flatiron location in Manhattan to be replaced this year by another Flatiron bar, according to the company.
At 8 Wilson Ave. in Bushwick, the new roastery will allow the company to double its current production capacity with the addition of a 22-kilo Probat roaster. The roastery will also be home to a new wholesale partnership initiative, through which cafes, restaurants or other wholesale partners can receive a more tailored coffee program.
The fruits from the roastery will also be served on site from a white marble bar with a three-group La Marzocco Strada AV for espresso drinks, supported by Mahlkonig and Nuova Simonelli Mythos grinders. The company is also describing the Bushwick location as the “first Saint Anthony Industries flagship cafe in New York City.”
A pourover bar featuring a range of single-origin offerings and blends focuses on manual brewing equipment from the high-design manufacturer, co-founded by Khristian Bombeck. According to Toby’s Estate, the shop will also include SAI merchandise, including the C70 ceramic brewer and the Filibuster glass decanter.
Toby’s Estate is now open at 8 Wilson Ave. in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
