About Victrola Coffee Roasters:
From the beginning, Victrola, named for the popular home phonograph of the 1920′s, embraced the liveliness, exuberance and fun of the Jazz era. In our popular imagination the roaring 20′s represent excess, prohibition, flappers, and speakeasies. The era’s fingerprints mark much of what we do, from our passion for live vintage jazz to our cafes unique architectural charm.
When Victrola opened in 2000, the little 15th Avenue neighborhood had a big need. The community not only lacked great coffee it also had few great spaces to hang out or to meet friends. The cafe was so popular after only a year we doubled our space, taking over the storefront next door. In 2003, we took a huge step and began roasting our own coffee in the tiny back room of our café on 15th. In the cramped back room we spent countless hours experimenting with roast profiles and blends for our espresso. Early on, we committed ourselves to the task of sourcing, roasting, and preparing the finest coffees available. Since then, innovation has marked our roasting operations and coffee preparation.
In 2007, we cut the ribbon on Victrola’s showcase cafe, located in an old 1920′s auto row building just off downtown at the base of Capitol Hill, complete with our roastery, training facility and cupping room. This beautiful cafe is an exceptional place to learn more about coffee at a tasting, watch the roasting process, or simply enjoy a great book.
In 2009 Victrola acquired a great neighborhood cafe just down from the Library and light rail station on Beacon Hill. This cute little space reflects the comfort, passion for quality, quirkiness and community feel that characterizes all of Victrola’s cafes.
Now, as Victrola moves into a second decade, we look forward to new opportunities to fuel our passion and show our exuberance. We are actively seeking out new neighborhoods to share our great coffee and community space with, new partners to serve our coffee, and new and deepened relationships with farmers and producers.

The Bronx Brewery will be at Nolita Mart pouring samples of their finest brews from our Growler-fill Station on Saturday, January 25 from 4pm-6pm. We will also have delicious bites to go with the beer provided by Artisanal Premium Cheese and Rick’s Picks Pickles.
“The Bronx Brewery is a small, craft brewery in the Port Morris section of the South Bronx. It was launched in 2011 by a small team with two things in common: a maniacal focus on creating high-quality beer and a passion for the Bronx and New York City. Its traditionally-crafted pales ales use only premium and minimally-processed materials to create fresh, bold beer from a borough known for its own uniquely bold character. The team is enthused to bring a rich brewing tradition back to the Bronx and craft a beer that the people of the Bronx and New York City can be proud to call their own. You can find their beers throughout New York.”
“Artisanal has revolutionized cheese appreciation in the United States by making the world’s finest cheeses available nationwide as never before.

They’re Back! We will be holding a Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream Demo at Nolita Mart & Espresso Bar once again. Anna from Jeni’s will be doling out free delicious ice cream at the store on Saturday, November 2 from 1pm to 5pm.
Jeni’s Ice Cream have been raved about by various publications, such as New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Time, Vogue, and Food & Wine. What makes Jeni’s special is that their ice cream is handmade made using milk and cream from grass fed cows and real, high quality ingredients.
We create ice creams we fall madly in love with, that we want to bathe in, that make us see million-year-old stars. We devour it out of Mason jars, coffee mugs—whatever we can get our hands on. Handmade American ice cream = Bliss with a big B. Every single thing we put in our ice cream is legit. Generic chemist-built ice cream bases and powdered astronaut-friendly gelato mixes? No, ma’am. We build every recipe from the ground up with luscious, Snowville milk and cream from cows that eat grass. With that exquisite base, we explore pure flavor in whatever direction moves us at any moment, every day, all year.
