Cedar Bean’s Coffee Joint, at 575 Pompton Avenue in Cedar Grove’s downtown district is a small-batch coffee shop with freshly roasted, third-wave artisan coffee, and triple-filtered nitro cold brews, as well as teas, drinks, breakfast and lunch items, and snacks. Reclaimed wood accents and concrete countertops recall a vintage explorer’s club or rustic lodge.
The shop and brand identity was conceived by Dave Fletcher, a Cedar Grove resident and CEO of The Mechanism a New York-based digital branding agency, more than two years ago. His goal was to to bring a family-friendly and wholly authentic coffee bar experience to Cedar Grove and its residents. For six months, Dave, along with his friend and fellow Cedar Grove resident Nick Russomanno, built the space from the ground up — using locally sourced materials when possible — in the location previously occupied by Tony’s Train Town.
Cedar Bean’s Coffee Joint, located at 575 Pompton Avenue in Cedar Grove opened its doors to the public for two grand openings on Saturday, November 3, 2018 and Saturday, November 10, 2018.
