The best coffee in Brooklyn just got even better.

Cafe Grumpy, which has fomented a coffee revolution from the non-descript corner of Meserole Avenue and Diamond Street, is now roasting its own beans, meaning that the exceptional coffee you’ve been enjoying for years is now so good that you really can taste citrus, blueberry and toffee notes that coffee snobs are always talking about.

Liam Singer (pictured) is manning the roaster with a light hand.

“I want you to taste the region, not the roast,” he said.

Singer’s house style brings out the attributes of each regions (the Guatamalan beans he roasted the other day ended up in a cup of coffee that was so lively that it leapt out of the mug).

Roasting 300 pounds of beans in-house is not just a vanity project. By eliminating the roaster, Cafe Grumpy eliminates thousands of miles that roasted beans travel under murky circumstances.

“Plus, we can roast what we need, when we need it,” Singer said.
