We are a small-batch roaster located in Buffalo, New York. We strongly believe in creating community through great coffee and we strive to bring our customers and neighbors the finest small-batch, single-origin coffees and our own custom espresso blends.

A Visit to Pilot Coffee Roasters in Toronto

December 10, 2014

For the longest time, we've been focused on establishing our roastery and coffee shop on Grant Street. For the better part of this past year, it has been one of our top priorities. Not only will we have a place to call home, but it will also aid immensely on the production side of ordering and roasting green coffee beans. New equipment, more space and a loading bay to receive 120lb. coffee bags will do wonders for our production schedule and/or backs.  Just a few short weeks ago though, we were offered the opportunity to open a full-service coffee shop and espresso bar in the lobby of the Hotel at the Lafayette. That offer came with an expedited opening date of January...

4th Annual Peace, Love & Grant St. this Thursday

A Public Service Announcement

November 24, 2014

We're incredibly excited to announce a special residency at the Hotel @ The Lafayette beginning January 1st, 2015. Our roastery and cafe are under construction at 368 Grant Street so we jumped at the chance to open up a pop-up coffee and espresso bar in the lobby of the historic Hotel Lafayette. Our weekly markets are a great chance to serve pour-over coffee for a few hours at a time, but with this residency, we'll be able to serve a full drink and food menu. It will also give us a chance to break in our new pour-over and espresso system prior to opening up on Grant (more on that very soon).  While we haven't settled on exact hours of operations, menu...
