Coffee & Vinyls: Such a Hipster Combo…but Rook Coffee May be a Truly Cool Find
A couple weekends ago I was in Brooklyn for a bridal shower. After the shower the bride-to-be and few of the guests walked around the neighborhood, Carroll Gardens. We stumbled upon Black Gold Records. It’s a coffee shop and record store! Someone mentioned how it’s such a hipster place. The group agreed.
Black Gold Records sources its beans from Rook Coffee Roasters based in Ocean, NJ. It’s a very young roastery with a sweet story. We each ordered a cup of the decaf coffee with almond soy milk. It was not bad at all. I think it definitely has potential. I’d like to try the coffee at an actual Rook location before I draw true conclusions though. I hope to visit them in the near future. In the meantime if you do, let me know what you think.
