Character Coffee is a community-driven and quality focused coffee shop providing a multi-roaster experience in Utica, NY.

Character Coffee began as Blacksite Coffee in 2015 offering a mobile coffee service for weddings and special events.

Today our shop is located in the heart of downtown Utica offering the highest quality coffees from roasters with direct trade practices from all over the country! We also offer a rotating snack menu from local vendors, delicious tea selection, and even a kids menu! 

Our mission is to create an approachable coffee environment and share what speciality coffee is all about with the Greater Utica Area. We are passionate about providing Utica coffee and teas that focus on quality and sustainability - best of all we know you'll be able to taste the difference!

Our coffee bar is intentionally designed with customer facing equipment so you can see your drink being made, all while enjoying our inviting and wide open counter top with easily accessible outlets to use at your convenience, not to mention knowledgeable baristas happy to share the experience with you!

Character Coffee exists to tell the story of coffee from farm to cup and honor all those in the process.
