About

Who we are:

Founded in Istanbul, Walter's Coffee Roastery is the first coffee laboratory, specializing in daily roasted coffee. We respect coffee and its chemistry. From extraction and brew temperatures to espresso machine pressure and grinder configuration, we have coffee down to a science.   

What people are saying:

CNN: "Hold the Stevia! Breaking Bad cafes open."

http://edition.cnn.com/2015/08/12/travel/breaking-bad-cafes/

Fast Company: "They are not in the coffee business - they're in the Empire Business."

http://www.fastcocreate.com/3049146/look-inside-istanbuls-breaking-bad-themed-coffee-shop-walters-coffee

Mashable: "Istanbul is currently the only location of Walter's, but if Deniz Kosan wanted to take his business abroad, we wouldn't mind. We're assuming he's a little nicer than Gus Fring."

The Story of Walter's and Coffee:

We founded the first Walter’s Coffee Roastery in Istanbul, where in the 16th Century one of the first coffeehouses in the world opened. After more than 500 years of coffee history, we now bring to you the newest evolution in the coffee house experience. 

Our motto says it all: Daily roasted coffee for everyone. We roast our beans every morning to provide the freshest coffee possible. Through a meticulously tested micro-roasting process our customers enjoy the best cup of coffee every time. We are so proud of our sustainable in-house small-batch roasting process that we invite everyone to take part in the process as we methodically clean, prep and roast the beans in our Coffee Super Lab.

What can you do at Walter's Coffee Roastery?

Walter’s concept of a place where you can sit down and enjoy a freshly roasted and brewed cup of joe, have fun with your friends, or relax and get some work done with outlets aplenty and high speed Wi-Fi. But even more than that, it's the feeling you will have when you are with us, that indescribable sensation of being exactly where you need and want to be with those you want to have around you.

You can work or study with outlets on every table, in groups or solo:

You can have fun with your rad friends: 

Enjoy freshly roasted coffee brewed with passion everyday along with homemade bagels, nutella-tastic cookies, crispy bacon, fluffy pancakes and much more:

Why we need funding:

After much success in Istanbul, our hearts are set on New York! We are seeking funding to help cover the final costs of opening a lab in Brooklyn, April 2016.
 
 

With your support, we will be able to pay the first crucial costs to open Walter's Coffee Roastery in Brooklyn, New York. Once this project is backed we will obtain permits to start construction, pay broker fees, legal fees, decoration, ventilation and roaster installation.

Financial Goals:

YEAH! REWARDS!

Postcards from our Founder Deniz to Limited Edition Kickstarter Blend Coffee Subscriptions and a place on our Wall of Fame! We also have Stickers, Mugs, Tote Bags, T-Shirts, Aprons, HazMat Suits, Invitations to our Pre-opening Bash, exclusive Roast Sessions and Private Cupping Parties!

THANK YO! so much for taking the time to check out our Kickstarter campaign! Whether you choose to contribute financially or helping to spread the word, everyone of Walter's Coffee Roastery's Team values your support to helping fund our dream! 

We can't do this without you.

Risks and challenges

New York is dense with competition. It will take a lot of work to establish ourself in the market and we are ready for the challenge. Our dedication to daily roasts and serving the freshest coffee possible differentiates us from the competition. We want our customers to see and take part in the roasting process.

Another challenge are legal hurdles. While New York is a city that inspires and welcomes entrepreneurs, there are various permits, licenses and certifications that need to be obtained. We've invested countless hours researching the intricacies of New York law to move forward with our dreams and have a legal guru on call in case anything comes up.
