Born in NZ. Founded in NY.
When you travel 8,989 miles to open a coffee shop in New York City; you make sure it’s worth the trip.
The islands of New Zealand are a long way from the island of Manhattan but that’s where the four founders of Happy Bones got serious about drinking, making and sharing some of the world’s best coffee.
You may know New Zealand is famous for many things. You may not know that for over two decades it has also been home to one of the richest (and some would claim) obsessive coffee cultures in the world.
With the launch of Happy Bones we’re bringing this passion for incredible coffee and inspiring art, design and music to the most exciting city in the world.
For each of us, this is nothing short of a dream come true.
Every day the Happy Bones team will be working to give coffee loving New Yorkers a taste of what we hope will one day be considered among the best in the city. We invite you to come and try it for yourself and we would love to know what you think.
*** Ethics: From the grounds up:
It all starts with the beans that we are so happy to be able to source through Direct Trade. Our beans come from Counter Culture Coffee, who work directly with coffee farmers in long-term, mutually supportive relationships.
We believe in paying our employees a living wage and ensuring we have a great team of people and an inspiring environment to work in.
We also recycle and compost everything we can and are always on the lookout for the most ethically sourced ingredients and suppliers for everything that makes Happy Bones possible. If you see something we could be doing better, just let us know.
We do this because we believe the people who drink Happy Bones Coffee shouldn’t be the only ones feeling happy.
Happy Bones wants to have a positive impact on the world from day one. That’s why we donate a percentage of our profits to Free Arts NYC, who provide “underserved children and families with a unique combination of educational arts and mentoring programs that help them to foster the self-confidence and resiliency needed to realize their fullest potential.” The Founders of Happy Bones are passionate about art and want to share that passion with the children of New York.
