New coffee brand opening Albany, Troy locations

A start-up coffee brand is driving into two local locations. Motor Oil Coffee will open up spots in Troy and Albany.

Right now you can only buy their products at local farmers markets, festivals and on Amazon.

The Troy location opens this month in partnership with 518 Craft. It will feature hot and cold beverages, baked goods and bags of coffee blends.

The Albany shop will be the flagship location. It is set to open its doors later this year in the city’s warehouse district. You’ll find the same coffee as in the Troy location, along with beer, wine and cocktails.

Through a partnership with Clark House Hospitality, there will also be a number of pre-made food items available.

Customers at both locations will be able to enroll in Motor Oil Coffee’s loyalty program, Sparks, to earn free coffee.
