crossroads.’ mission is to provide great tasting coffee and baked goods with a smile whilst being eco-friendly and affordable. Born from the minds of two young women, crossroads. wants to bring coffee back to the basics with a twist. Not only will you be able to grab a standard cup of coffee, but you can also explore a range of drinks for the more adventurous coffee/tea connoisseur that you wouldn’t find at just any old shop.

 

Each roast has been hand selected and tested by crossroads. to insure bold taste and overall quality. We strive to build relationships with our local distributors to create a positive impact on the community we serve. 

 

At crossroads. you can look forward to fresh house-made baked goods from muffins and biscotti to bread and more.

Some of the best memories are made with a cup of coffee.

 

crossroads. is the dream of a woman who has many cups of coffee to thank for some of the best times of her life; laughs with friends, first dates, meeting her best friends, hour long study sessions, and much, much more.

You never know what someone is going through, and sometimes a kind familiar face can change the course of that person's day.  

There’s something so special about a coffeeshop, it’s more than the coffee or the food, it’s the people. The smiles. The, "have a wonderful day".

Based out of Middletown and Southington, Connecticut, Perkatory Coffee Roasters provides small batch roasts to provide the freshest coffee available. 

From the website:

"Perkatory focuses on providing fresh, in house roasted specialty coffee beans for the best tasting cup of coffee. By roasting small batches, weekly, we are able to keep your coffee tasting the way it should. Deathly delicious. Perkatory offers both single origin coffees and exclusive blends that are to die for. Perkatory Coffee Roasters was conceived from the minds of two children of the 80's. Raised on punk rock and skateboarding, they wanted to bring new life to a coffee shop in a growing community. By creating a coffee experience you won't get anywhere else, Perkatory Coffee Roasters will raise you from the grave!"

From the website:

"Victus Coffee was born from a love of specialty coffee, a deep rooted respect for endurance athletes, and a desire to give back.

 

After watching a moving documentary about Team Rwanda Cycling, José René Martínez, master coffee roaster and Victus Coffee co-owner, was inspired to use his talents to help the athletes and the Rwandan community. Thus, Victus Coffee was created.

 

Today, the Victus Coffee mission has expanded to support all forms of wellness, from fitness and nutrition to mental health advocacy.

From the website:

"We started this company with one thing in mind: Integrity. We strive every day to be a coffee roaster that actually does what it says - not just roasting great coffee, but doing good things for the community and world. We believe in what we are doing everyday:

  • We only purchase certified Organic coffees - most are also certified Fair Trade.

  • We have partnered with Cafe Femenino and sell several of their offerings as our core coffees. They are a women-led speciality coffee brand that sources coffees from women-owned and operated farms and co-ops.

  • Our coffee bags are 100% biodegradable. Yes, even the labels!

  • When we ship out orders, they are sent in brown kraft envelopes or USPS-branded cardboard boxes - all of which are recyclable.

  • We buy our electric power thorough green energy producers.

     

Our company's name comes from Sleeping Giant State Park (Hamden, CT), one of Connecticut's hidden green gems. This mountainous beauty of a park is full of hiking trails, a stone tower, and streams - the namesake comes from the ridge line, which resembles a giant human lying down. The variety of terrain makes it accessible to hikers of all ages and abilities. It holds a special place in the heart of our founder, Jesse, who grew up frequenting the park and making memories as a young child, and now brings his own children hiking there often."
