Co-Founders Adam, Jesse, and head roaster Graham have been running Recess Coffee in Syracuse, NY since 2007. From our flagship cafe located in the heart of the Westcott Neighborhood, Recess has been a hub for students, scholars, artists, musicians, families, and everyone in between for over a decade. In 2015, Recess Coffee expanded with a second location in the Historic Courier Building in Downtown Syracuse, located next to City Hall. More recently, we opened a third location at the New York State Fairgrounds to fuel some of the largest events in the region.
We strive to serve our community on a local and global scale, and offer support to those who support us. We source all of our fairly traded beans direct from farms with missions of sustainability and ethical practices. We do this because we care about the global environment and the community of farmers, families, and entrepreneurs who provide us with great, quality beans.
