SkyTop Coffee Company is your Specialty Coffee Roaster located in Upstate NY.  We source USDA Organic, ethically Fair Traded, and Bird Friendly coffees with fully traceable supply lines.  We believe that being an environmentally conscious coffee company means doing the right thing for you, our customers, and our farmer partners at origin.  We work with green coffee importers to identify coffees that are aligned with not only our flavor profiles, but also our values.

We strive to minimize our packaging, and limit our stress on the environment.  Our coffee is packaged in a compostable bag with a PLA (Polylactic Acid) liner, it is a clear, crisp film made from the sugars in corn starch. This product works well for items with a higher oil content, as the PLA liner will help keep our product from wicking through the outer paper.  PLA bags biodegrade in less than a month in a proper composter. We recommend removing the label and tin-tie prior to composting. At the Farmer's markets and vendor events we use 100% recyclable sample hot cups, and 100% biodegradeable cold cups made also from PLA corn resin.

Our coffees can be found at select retail partners as well as online.  We attend several farmer's markets and vendor events throughout the year and update our website regularly with that information.  At SkyTop we believe in giving back to the local community, and regularly give coffee donations to In My Father's Kitchen, a non-profit organization that provides outreach services to homeless individuals in Syracuse, NY.

Aaron Lerner and Serena Castagno Lerner are the Co-Owners/Founders of SkyTop Coffee Company, LLC. Serena was born in Cambridge, MA to a musical family. Her father was a former professional musician, and she was exposed to the arts as early as she can remember. Aaron is from Cazenovia, NY and attended Cazenovia High School. Aaron and Serena met in college at Norwich University in Vermont, the country's oldest private military university. There they were both members of the Corps of Cadets, and they played Rugby for the Men's and Women's teams respectively. After graduating they moved back to Serena's hometown of Boston, MA. The years brought more opportunity for corporate advancement in sales and marketing for various industries and this eventually led them back to Central NY in 2002. Aaron is third generation in the coffee business. His father worked within the Office Coffee segment for 30 years and his grandfather owned a coffee company called Perk Up in Buffalo, NY in the 1950's. Aaron has personally spent the past 15 years in the coffee industry acquiring multiple certifications and is a licensed Q-Grader and Coffee Lab Inspector. In July of 2018 Aaron and Serena formed SkyTop Coffee with a few goals in mind. They wanted to focus on unique, organic, single origin coffees while working to master barrel ageing techniques. Serena knew she wanted to take the lead on the creative side of the table. She went back to school to complete an A.A.S. in Art and Graphic Design to prepare to handle the digital side of the business. Aaron is the green coffee buyer, and the Head Roaster at SkyTop. He is also a 3-time National competitor for the Specialty Coffee Association's Cup Tasters competition. When they're not brewing coffee at the weekend Farmer's markets or at vendor events you can find them drinking coffee on their travels and taking advantage of all the local outdoor parks.
