RED HOOK — The savory smell of fresh-roasted coffee is once again wafting over the south Brooklyn waterfront.
Stumptown Coffee's Red Hook roastery, flooded during Hurricane Sandy Oct. 29, resumed operation Monday for the first time since the super-storm struck, Stumptown announced on its Twitter feed.
"Hello world," @stumptowncoffee posted Monday. "Our NYC Roastery is back after a big recovery effort. A huge thanks to all that supported us."
Stumptown did not return calls for comment. The reopening was first reported on Curbed's Eater New York blog.
Stumptown Coffee, based in Portland, Ore., has a cafe on West 29th Street in Manhattan, and it is planning to open another location on West Eighth Street.
