If you’re searching for the finest cup of coffee in Ithaca, look no further. At the Carriage House Café, serving transcendent coffees and teas is our passion.
We proudly brew coffee from our well known local small-batch roaster, Copper Horse Coffee, and we never allow the beans to exceed the recommended shelf life of 2-14 days. Each pot of coffee is meticulously ground and brewed, and held for a maximum of 30 minutes. At the Carriage House, you can always count on fresh.
Our espresso shots are triple ristretto and ground to order. Each latte, cappuccino and macchiato poured by our baristas is topped with beautiful latte art– our maker’s mark signifying that the utmost care has been taken in every step of preparation.
At the café, we only use Ithaca Milk supplied from grass-fed, hormone and antibiotic free Jersey cows; rich and creamy milk that enhances our unique coffee blends. Some of our other quality ingredients include: organic cane sugar, house made cocoa mix and syrups and fair-trade spices.
Speaking of baristas, ours are highly trained to proficiency in every aspect of coffee technique, ensuring that the fine ingredients in your coffee are paid respect and used to their potential.
And finally, we now offer our Carriage House Blend, Clocktower Espresso and our Steady Hand Decaf blend for sale in 12 ounce retail bags at the café. After enjoying a delicious brewed coffee drink, you can take the memories home!
For our tea drinkers, we offer the finest organic loose-leaf tea blends: green, black, white, red, herbal and fruit, served either hot or cold. To maximize the aroma, texture, and beneficial qualities, each individual cup is brewed-to-order in a special tea infuser. The tea is served to you after being steeped for the proper amount of time and temperature each tea requires.
