Here's a secret: The best way to ensure coffee tastes great is freshness. The whole reason we started roasting our own coffee here in Cortland is to ensure that we offer the most stunningly amazing product we can, and daily small batch roasting is a big part of that.
We usually stock coffees from about 25 countries and regions around the world. Each one is meticulously roasted to bring out its best flavors and aromas. Our job as roasters is to coax the subtleties in each batch to its fullest potential.

THIS OLD BUILDING AND THE FUTURE OF THE SOUTH SIDE
The building that now houses the Coffee Mania Roasting Facility has a rich history that honestly, we know very little about. We have been able to shake out a few choice tidbits, however, like: Prior to our building being built, the entire lot it sits on was a large train repair yard for the Lehigh Valley railroad.
We know that our building was built in 1911 to be the railroad freight terminal for Cortland. Simultaneously, a new passenger station was being built a couple hundred feet East. Both buildings still stand today on South Ave.
Sometime in the early 1970s, the railroad sold the freight depot to private owners. Since then, our building has been a machine shop, a furniture store, and a bottle and can return center, among other things. Craig and Michelle bought the building in 2006 and are in the process of restoring it.
We have great expectations for the future of the South end of Cortland. We support and encourage the continued re-development and restoration of this area with the hope that this can become an area where all people can feel welcome and at home. We are excited about the effort that the city of Cortland continues to put in to this end of town.
In the Summer of 2013 we leased about an acre of land to Main Street Farms. These guys are doing great things by turning our lot into an urban farm, bringing food production and people together here on the South side.
