One Monday evening, 100 years ago… bags of coffee are being loaded to the train. The smell of coffee permeats the air in Jersey City.
Bucket & Bay Craft Gelato Co is located in the historic landmark building of the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co which created and roasted here in Jersey City the iconic Eight O'Clock Coffee.
Eight O'Clock Coffee regarded by many as the “original gourmet coffee” was once the bestselling coffee in the world. A&P built their first coffee-roasting plant in Jersey City and we are ready to bring back the smell of coffee to it.
What is your favorite brand? We would love to hear from you.
We are in the process of selecting our vendors. We need coffee and we need your help. What coffee does Jersey City like today?
1. One might say "Gelato? Try the classic Italian brands Illy & Lavazza." But our gelato is not Italian, it is American, freshly crafted in Jeresy City.
2. Starbucks is everywhere but not good for us. So scratch that.
3. We have considered the popular high end brands Stumptown, Intelligentsia, Counter Culture, Irving Farm, and maybe Blue Bottle. Union city has Red House Roasters. And then there is Mod Cup. Local. On a mission.
