modcup mobile roaster

147 Harborside Financial Center, Jersey City, NJ 07302

Editor's Review

They started with a modest café in the largely residential Heights neighborhood, but a few years on, and modcup is now a pretty major presence in Jersey City, with three cafés and a roaster all within city limits. This location, close to the Exchange Place PATH stop and the many office highrises that line this waterfront strip, is always hopping with the commuter and office crowd, but they keep things moving. Not literally, though in point of fact the café is in fact a tricked-out former French bread truck, and this Citroën customized cafe has it all – espresso, filter coffee, even vanilla-infused nitro cold brew, all fresh roasted by modcup themselves (and, occasionally, roasting onsite to tempt and allure—the truck is also equipped with a 2.2 kilo Ambex YM coffee roaster!).

They take the beans seriously here, working directly with farms for both their single-origin options, as well as the Secret Affair espresso blend, and across their selection, there is a preference for freshness, and clean flavors, letting the fruit speak loudly. They also make a lovely cascara tea, homemade chai, and any number of other specialty drinks, and they stock a limited pastry and cookie selection from Colson. modcup brings real coffee knowledge and passion to everything they do, and they manage to create a fun and welcoming atmosphere, even in a truck parked in a financial center atrium.
