Serendipity Must Have

Here’s how to wake up with that relaxed, just-spent-the-day-on-the-water feeling every morning: brew up some Beaches & Beans Coffee Co. java. “Our goal is to formulate a coffee and brand that fully embodies the toes-in-the-sand lifestyle, bringing the beach to you, one sip at a time,” says Steve H., who launched the coffee brand with his wife Debbie, in 2020. The most popular? Their signature Montauk blend ($15). Organic and fair-trade (like all the company’s blends), Montauk is a medium-roast coffee with distinct packaging featuring the Montauk Lighthouse.

“Being that Montauk holds a special place in the hearts of so many people in the tri-state area, and that the lighthouse possesses such iconic characteristics, we felt that designing our bag to represent what is—or at least is one of—the most iconic structures on the East Coast was a good way to tap into the hearts of all who love Montauk and coastal New England,” says Steve. When you buy, you can also feel good about contributing to protecting our oceans and beaches, and supporting veterans, two causes they support.
