Recess Coffee has been locally roasting coffee since 2007, making us a staple of the Syracuse, NY, community. With 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. In 2015, Recess Coffee expanded with a second location in the Historic Courier Building in Downtown Syracuse, located next to City Hall. In 2020, our third location opened in the Tipperary Hill neighborhood of Syracuse.
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.
Roasting in our custom production facility, our team of dedicated roasters tests every batch to assure consistency and quality with each cup, so that you can enjoy great-tasting coffee not just from our cafe, but from the comfort of your home.
