Astroid features a highly intentional menu that has been carefully curated with an emphasis on high-quality ingredients and local partnerships.
OUR COFFEE & TEA
Astroid’s coffee is sourced from Brooklyn-based Parlor Coffee in a special partnership with Beauty Shoppe. The Espressive is Astroid’s signature beverage and has been designed as a seasonal rotating single origin coffee. This beverage is not available anywhere else in Pittsburgh. The Espressive is prepared similarly to regular espresso, but with lower pressure and a longer brew time, resulting in an exquisite coffee that is less concentrated than espresso and more flavorful that drip coffee. It takes less than 3 minutes to prepare, providing single-origin varietals to customers in less than half the time of pour-over coffees.
Astroid also features a robust loose-leaf tea program, with tea sourced from Somage Chamellia Tea. A few staples including Organic Earl Grey and Lemongrass-Ginger will be available year round. Single origin teas will be rotated onto the menu as they become available.
