Georgio's Coffee

THIS LOCATION HAS MOVED TO THE FOLLOWING ADDRESS:

1965 NEW HIGHWAY
FARMINGDALE, NY. 11735

Did you know that we have our very own coffee roaster on Long Island? Until we came across Georgio's Coffee, neither did we. Located at 146 West Jericho Turnpike in Huntington Station, this fine find is very easy to miss if you don't know it's there (and, if you like coffee, it would really be a shame to miss it).

Owned by Georgio and Lydia (a husband and wife team), this unassuming shop carries a wide variety of fair trade, organic and farm direct coffees that come from Columbia, Ethiopia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Mexico, Hawaii, Yemen, Peru and many other places around the world, including the Galapagos Islands. (Yes, that's right - the Coffee is grown on the Galapagos Islands.) Some tea, which is blended by Lydia, is also sold at Georgio's.

Lydia and Georgio are very knowledgeable about coffee and seem to have very good relationships with the farmers growing the beans sold at their shop. Pictures of the farms hang on the walls of the store and Georgio and Lydia can tell you about how the coffee is grown, picked and roasted. There are even samples of the coffee at various stages around the shop.

Georgio's has a few small tables so you can definitely hang around and drink a cup of coffee there but, by the time you're done drinking, you'll want to take home a bag. The place smells delicious and the coffee tastes wonderful. The only thing bad about Georgio's is that you'll be addicted on your first visit!

Tried the coffee here - and its very good stuff. They even have pure 24K Kona Coffee, thats hard to find around here!

The staff really knows their coffee, and the prices are very reasonable.

there's a good pizza place next door too with coal oven pizza by the slice.
