Since 1987, we've been roasting coffee and baking our famous biscotti and scones at our small, European-style cafe in Greenport, New York. Today, our coffees are served in restaurants and shops across the North Fork and the Hamptons and shipped to our loyal customers around the world. We invite you to shop our site or, better yet, come visit us at the cafe. During the summer months the line will be long, but we promise it will be worth the wait.

 

It all begins with Aldo...

Aldo Maiorana was born in Sicily and raised in France. While serving as majordomo to the French Navy's commander in the South Pacific, he lived in New Caledonia. Then Aldo was off to Paris, Caracas, and Tourrettes-sur-Loup, a medieval village in Provence where he owned a restaurant housed in a stone and mortar building.

   

Fortunately for us, Aldo finally landed on the East End, which has been his home since 1978.

Here in America, Aldo craved the little pleasures that he enjoyed in the past, one of which was coffee. A consummate student, Aldo bought a coffee roaster, sourced beans from selected origins, and began his quest to craft the perfect cup.

In 2007, the coffee behemoth Starbucks opened its first location in Greenport—directly across the street from Aldo's. Never one to worry about competition, Aldo continued roasting his coffee and baking his scones and biscotti. Lines continued to form out the door during the summer months, and in October of 2011, Starbucks quietly left town.

Who needs Starbucks? We have Aldo. Read Here.
