We are Tunnel City Coffee, a specialty coffee company roasting and operating three cafes in the northern Berkshires of western Massachusetts. Our story started 25 years ago when we began testing out roasting methods on a tiny home oven in Williamstown, MA. Since then, we've grown to three shops and a roasting facility in the historic Norad Mill of North Adams, MA.

Tunnel City Coffee gets its name from the story of the Hoosac Tunnel, an important one that speaks to the resilience of those who laid the foundation for small manufacturing in the northern Berkshires. Their work and sacrifice built the place we call home, and we are more than grateful. 

Our mission at Tunnel City Coffee is to bring the specialty coffee experience to small towns like ours, and to those near and far who seek out specialty coffee and deserve to have the best outside their front door. 

Tunnel City Coffee thrives because of its diverse core of baristas, bakers and roasters. We are students, teachers, artists, athletes, retired professionals, creators, preservationists, cooks, accountants, writers and photographers, to name a few. Our employees bring soul and character to our cafes and create a unique specialty coffee community for our customers.

Stop in for a thoughtfully prepared espresso beverage at one of our two downtown Williamstown cafes or our shop inside MASS MoCA and get to know us.
