I stumbled into Kos Kaffe Roasting House on a really hot day this past summer while strolling the streets op Park Slope, one of my favorite neighborhoods in Brooklyn.
Kos Kaffe has now become one of my favorite coffee places in Brooklyn. I always relax when I am here. The coffee is great and the space is beautiful. And they roast their own coffee too!
I love the shop because it is so incredibly spacious. The front is all enormous windows reaching from the floor to the ceiling, making you feel like it’s a safe place while still seeing the world strolling by right next to you. They offer a full breakfast, lunch and baked goods menu, locally sourced where possible. Laptop use is restricted in certain areas at certain times of the day to avoid the entire coffee shop being filled with people on their laptops. Even though I am sometimes one of them, I love this; things like this don’t come around that often anymore.
The idea behind this coffee shop is simple: a (coffee) place to call home. I couldn’t agree more. The place is run by Allon and Sarah -husband and wife- who are both extremely experienced and skilled in the coffee and food industry. It’s called a marriage of coffee. Like, really, it doesn’t get much better than this.
When you find the heart in a place, I will happily lose mine to it.
