Both founded in New York, Blank Street and Only NY are inspired by the City. Blank Street’s goal is to make great coffee more accessible where New Yorkers need it most: down their blocks, by the train, on the way to a park. By the same token, Only NY has prided itself on working with New York institutions that have become synonymous with New Yorkers’ everyday life including the MTA and NYC Parks Department amongst many more. Continuing that focus on offering a true New York experience, Only NY and Blank Street have partnered on a classic yet unique tasting coffee. Working with a Nicaraguan co-op of 65 small-scale coffee growers, the blend prioritizes high quality sourcing and fair pricing, and is roasted right in our backyard in Upstate New York. The Only NY blend is floral with a silky body, with notes of milk chocolate, caramel, and apple butter. With packaging designed by Only NY, the Blank Street x Only NY coffee is available for purchase across Blank Street and Only NY locations, as well as on both retailers’ online shops.
In addition to a premium coffee, the Only NY team has designed co-branded uniforms to celebrate the launch of the partnership: a t-shirt and beanie available exclusively to Blank Street's baristas, the heart and soul of Blank Street's brand.
Blank Street will also have a limited run of custom Blank Street x Only NY totes and long sleeve t-shirts available for purchase at select locations around the city.
