BUSHWICK — A new coffee roaster set to open in Bushwick this fall plans to go big with its specialty drinks, with options like a coffee milkshake and a coffee lemonade.

Supercrown Coffee, at 8 Wilson Ave., is opening its own roastery and coffee bar with Gorilla Coffee co-founder Darleen Scherer at the helm, according to a shop spokeswoman.

Beyond roasting its own beans, Supercrown will be offering a variety of specialty drinks not typically found at independent coffee shops.

It will feature coffee milkshakes, which includes two shots of espresso, sweat cream ice cream, whole milk and espresso coffee grinds.

Patrons will also be able to pick up a "Kaffelemonade," a Scandinavian-inspired coffee version of an Arnold Palmer made of two parts iced coffee and onepart lemonade.

In addition, the shop will serve black coffee and espresso cherry sodas, as well as almond and cashew milk lattes.

Wholesale beans, a weekly coffee subscription based on Scherer's picks, will also be available, and they may also offer ready-to-drink cans of coffee blends.

Co-founders Philip Hoffman and Scherer, who sold her partnership in Brooklyn's Gorilla Coffee last year, are also planning a slew of activities for the shop.

Supercrown, which is expected to open in October, is planning to announce more specialty menu items as it prepares to open, the spokeswoman said.
