1. East Iceland Coffee

Riverview Farmers Market
498 Palisade Ave, Jersey City, NJ 07307

East Iceland Coffee was founded by Thor Arbjornsson, a former opera singer from Iceland who traded music for coffee. Thor’s mission is to spread the Icelandic tradition of sharing life over coffee:

In Iceland pretty much everything evolves around coffee and coffee breaks. You don’t go to visit somebody, you go over for coffee. You take a break to drink coffee and talk about your day or news with colleagues. You won’t go anywhere without coffee being offered. It’s just a way of life over there and our thirst for coffee encourages social interaction.

2. Hidden Grounds

700 Garden St, Hoboken, NJ 07030

Hidden Ground was started by first-generation entrepreneurs Anand Patel and Spoorthi Kumar who traded their corporate day jobs for a business that they could pour themselves into.

Hidden Grounds showcases rotating varieties including typica and pink bourbon. They typically roast medium.

3. Bwe Kafe

1002 Washington St, Hoboken, NJ 07030

Buying locally roasted coffee is a great way to understand the culture of the city you’re traveling to, but for a specialty coffee lover, it can be hard to find coffees that are light roast, single origin, and on-par with what you’re used to brewing.
