Tucked away amongst New York City’s subway corridors Is one of the Big Apple’s best-kept secrets.
In 2015, Voyager Espresso opened its doors to serve up high-quality coffee and espresso in New York City’s Financial District. The café, located in a subway passage on William Street, honors the science and craftmanship behind every cup of coffee we make. Our founder, Aaron Barnard, envisioned a space where he could take coffee to the next level, where the exactness of science and the artistic spirit of innovation collide create something brand new. He named the café Voyager as a nod to the work of Carl Sagan—a prolific astronomer whose passionate study of the cosmos transcended science to become a marvelous pursuit of wonder.
Voyager Espresso is driven by that same idea. We don’t just blend and grind beans—we craft specialty coffee beverages that are inspired by science and infused with creativity. The café is a gathering place for connoisseurs of taste, flavor and aroma, who love coffee as much as we do. Here, you can enjoy a specialty drink that’s prepared exclusively for you, and deepen your coffee-drinking experience by learning more about its creation. Whether you stay for a while or leave in a flash, you can always indulge in your favorite beverage.
We’re indisputably one of the best coffee shops and roasting houses in New York City, renowned for our legendary deconstructed latte that will submerge you in a creamy and delicious cup of cold coffee made with excellence. Each brew faithfully delivers on taste, from floral to fruity, delighting your palette with every step.
Now, we’re broadening our reach and expanding beyond the city to serve specialty-coffee drinkers throughout the country. Our online shop features Voyager Espresso proprietary roasts and singular coffee beans, espresso beans, filter beans, coffee-making equipment, books and homewares. Become a part of the Voyager coffee club with a customizable coffee subscription—we’ll ship single-origin coffee, signature blends, or espresso directly to you within 24 hours of roasting so that it’s always fresh. Monthly subscriptions start at $10, and you’ll receive complimentary shipping and early access to new products as well.
There’s coffee, and then there’s Voyager Espresso Coffee. Explore with us.
At Voyager Espresso, it’s more than just a cup of outstanding coffee. It’s about connection and the simple joys of life, in an increasingly disconnected, digital world.
Coffeemaking is a careful practice of pairing specific flavors, textures and aromas that are sourced from around the world and roasted to precision. That’s why we treat every cup and every roast with the passion of a scientist immersed in a new experiment: with an inquisitive mind, a wealth of knowledge, and inspired curiosity. We know a great deal about coffee, and we’re excited at the prospect of learning even more so that we serve you the best cup you’ve ever had.
We believe taste is the ultimate experience for any coffee drinker, and we think you’d agree. You deserve a product that accelerates the pleasure and enjoyment of that experience, and we’re here to deliver exactly that. From our extraction processes to addressing each bouquet and undertone early in development, we explore a wide variety of profiles to meet your expectations and keep them high.
We care deeply about the roots of our ingredients, championing sustainability and traceability. We source beans that can be traced to small farmers, and we pay the best market prices for our coffee to meet and exceed fair-trade specifications. As you know, we can’t enjoy any cup of coffee if it isn’t sourced ethically.
