New York Coffee Shop Joe to Open in Philadelphia

One of New York City’s favorite coffee shops will be opening up two locations in Philadelphia. Joe, which has nine locations in Brooklyn and Manhattan, will be setting up shop in Rittenhouse Square at 1845 Walnut Streeet early next year. The second location will be on Drexel’s campus and open later in 2013, possibly in one of the two new buildings on campus set to be complete at that time. Joe’s Rittenhouse space has 1,200 square feet of indoor space and 400 square feet of outdoor terrace space. It will be twice as large as any of the New York stores.

Just in time for their move to Philly, Joe will soon be roasting their own coffee too. Right now they get most of their product from Intelligentsia Coffee and Tea and Ecco Café. Joe runs through 3,000 pounds of coffee a week throughout the chain so they will only be roasting about 300 pounds of their own coffee a week at first.

With our own coffee renaissance in Philadelphia, it’s a good time to be a coffee drinker.
