Brainchild of Carver Farrell, Mark Foster and Alex Wilson, a 3 lamb roast was hosted all day on July 4th 2016. See video below.
FosterBuilt Coffee bosses the coffee at the #wintermotocamp base camp. Big thanks to The Mountain Brook Inn, Wayside Cider, The Pines/Willow Brooklyn, Brushland Eating House, and all the participants for their contributions and help in making this great event possible.
Mark Foster wants to show you everything around his land in the rural town of Bovina, just over three hours northwest of New York City. First, there’s his garage crammed with old workbenches, vintage motorbikes, and one pristine russet-hued 1931 Ford Model A. There’s his skull-and-crossbones-painted backyard barbecue that he uses to roast his very mellow, delicious FosterBuilt Coffee —which has gained an underground following in recent years and is served at haute-rustic eateries like Willow and The Pines, as well as the bike shop 718 Cyclery, in Brooklyn.
FosterBuilt Coffee, Bovina, N.Y.
When Mark Foster, a commercial film and video director, moved to Delaware County a few years ago, he found it impossible to buy a good cup of coffee locally. A hands-on tinkerer, he learned how to fire-roast beans in his garage using a contraption consisting of a rotating basket inside a backyard barbecue. Considering his setup is something you might find tutorials for on sites such as the Art of Manliness, you’d expect the results to be crude. But Foster’s beans (he favors varieties from Uganda, Sumatra and Ethiopia) yield brews that are mellow and aromatic — and are served in Brooklyn restaurants like the Pines and Willow.

ESCAPE NEW YORK: A WEEKEND IN THE CATSKILLS
If you are around on a Saturday morning, you can get freshly roasted coffee from FosterBuilt. The owner might even be roasting while you’re there, and if not, you can still enjoy the fresh coffee from his unique upstate coffee-truck – actually – it is more like a cabin on wheels. If you love old bikes, cars and motorcycles, ask to see his collection.

Hired to document the 1940's-style race on the beach, Mark Foster's side business of roasting coffee was discovered by the organizers of The Race of Gentlemen and approached him about building a coffee shop to fit the event. Foster jumped at the opportunity and built what looks like a depression era gypsy trailer in which he serves espressos and cappucinos from. The mobile coffee shop was build on a standard landscaping trailer with locally sourced wood, says Foster. It's outfitted with a bed and a mobile coffee roaster.
