Watch out Chicago, there’s a new name in the coffee game and it’s coming all the way from New Jersey right to your doorstep.
As a fellow New Jerseyan myself, I can personally vouch that New Jersey never gets a fair shake when it comes to food. The state already boasts the best pizza and bagels in the world (sorry, What Now New York), and soon the world is about to find out how well Jersey does Coffee.
Sakrid Coffee was founded five years ago by coffee aficionados Serge Picard and Jonathan Haley. Founded in Princeton, NJ, Picard and Haley set out to create a premium coffee that would pair best with local foods and drinks. Sakrid Coffee is all about the ritual of coffee drinking, the divine moment of wakefulness that kicks in after taking the first sip in the morning. Sakrid Coffee makes coffee that is meant to be savored and enjoyed, not chugged down for a quick burst of energy.
Sakrid Coffee believes that the best beans come from conscious agriculture, and is dedicated to paying growers equitably to preserve a strong growing culture across the world. They know too well that sustainable coffee growing makes a huge difference in both your cup and the world at large.
Today, Sakrid Coffee can be found in fine restaurants and establishments across the country and can be delivered monthly via their website. While they currently operate out of their studio and cafe in Princeton, the team is finally ready for their first full brick-and-mortar expansion.
The new expansion will see Sakrid Coffee opening its first location in Chicago at 2060 N Clark Street. Only a block away from Lincoln Park, the new Sakrid Coffee will offer 1,258 square feet of space. Striking a five-year deal with Colliers International, Sakrid will be occupying a beautiful corner building between North Clark Street and West Dickens Avenue. While the Sakrid team still has a lot of work ahead of them to prepare the space, you can try their beans out now by ordering directly through their website.
