Devoción was launched in 2006 by Colombian-born Steven Sutton. Its goal is to produce the freshest coffee imaginable. Roasting coffee contributes to half its flavor; the remaining portion comes from the beans’ freshness. However, the majority of coffee beans are left stale for weeks on end. Devoción’s team, which hand-picks its coffee bean at their 1,000+ farm partners, dry mills at its facility in Bogota, manages the export procedure, and roasts in Brooklyn, does everything other than picking the cherry and does it faster than anyone else.
To ensure that their Colombian beans are as fresh as possible, Devocion overnights them by FedEx from Colombia to New York. Is that love… or perhaps “devoción”?
Devocion has locations in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Bogota, Colombia. Their Downtown Brooklyn location is at Livingston St, Brooklyn, NY 11201.
Many seats are available, and most people use laptops to work remotely. Most people in the room are working, so there isn’t much chatter or excessively loud conversations, and a superb soundtrack is playing in the background.
Free, password-protected WiFi is available. But keep in mind that they turn off the WiFi on weekends (presumably to keep the place free of laptops), so only bring your laptop here from Monday through Friday.
The decor is fresh and modern, with high ceilings in an industrial style, walls that resemble cinder blocks, a tiled floor, and an excellent cement central “patio” that is surrounded by natural jungle plants. It’s like working in a garden here.
The closest subway to the Downtown Brooklyn location is Hoyt-Schermerhorn C/G.
Aside from their superb coffee, you must also try their pastries, especially their guava and regular croissants.
You can also visit their website seen below to know more about their story. You can also shop online through their website if you want to try their house blends and other limited edition blends.
