Ugly Duck Coffee began as a multi-roaster pop-up espresso bar that traveled around the City of Rochester, NY. We partnered with local businesses to temporarily set-up within their walls, to offer patrons espresso based beverages. After almost one year on the move, we've settled into our own little home at 89 Charlotte St in the City of Rochester's East End.

Each drink is crafted with the intention of highlighting the characteristics of the coffee, while maintaining the integrity of the roasters we partner with.

Off-site Events

It's no secret that the UDC crew loves a good party - and, after a few years around the block with our pop-up bar, we know how to do event catering right. 

It's pretty simple. We charge a flat fee to show up and the rest is built around your needs and event size. All event packages include one Ugly (and talented) barista and set-up of our custom-built espresso bar in a space of your choosing.
