A letter about Covid-19

As we head into our second week of our limited services at Rochester we wanted to reflect on things so we will always remember these feelings.

We opened our business 7 months ago and we have faced challenges and triumphs. One thing we did was plan for hard times, but nothing could have prepared us for the Covid-19 virus shutdown.

Our event space that has been used for meetings, parties, weddings, and social gatherings. Now we simply cannot have gatherings and while we understand and want everyone to be safe it is still hard to see our 2600 sq/ft space empty. We started this business to have a place to gather!

We have grown to get to know our neighbors in the Westside and while some of them live in nearby lofts or work at the media agency, phone company, engineering firm, cyber security office, salon, auto shop, etc. we miss you, can’t wait to be back to serve you and to catch up on all of the things we have missed out on during this time.

For now, we stay open and shift our business to more production of cans, bagged coffee, and to-go orders. We will continue to stay open until the local government authority shuts us down. After all, you need loads of coffee and beer to stock up on while at home working or with family.

We hope that everyone stays safe and takes advantage of this time to pour into their family, friends (from a distance) and get back into touch with themselves.

Don’t worry about us as we will be brewing, roasting, canning, bagging, and serving delicious coffee (to go) and beer (to go) until we legally have to halt production.

    We used to be loyal Rosterie coffee drinkers – that is, until we tried Rochester’s Blend. Best coffee ever – great flavor – great price – I highly recommend it to everyone!
