Supercrown Coffee Roasters on Wilson Avenue in Bushwick closed yesterday.
Supercrown, founded in 2015 by coffee veteran Darleen Scherer, brought progressively-sourced green coffee to Bushwick at its cafe iconized by the 1952 German Probat roaster.
“We are a coffee roasting company first,” Darleen told us back in 2015.
While it’s not immediately clear why the roasting company shut down, we do know that it wasn’t because of a health violation, which brings the demise of many eateries and drinkeries in the neighborhood.
So, goodbye to Supercrown — Bushwick’s coffee aficionados will miss ye!
