Black Drop Coffee, located in downtown Scotch Plains, opened its doors this past September. It’s been less than threee months since opening day yet there are already regulars, instant favorites, curbside pickup (for people on the go) and a large @blackdropcoffeenj Instagram following.
Black Drop Coffee provides a top quality food & drink experience through fresh and thoughtfully crafted menu items, including vegan and gluten-free options. Specializing in high-quality coffee and espresso, they value variety, single-origin beans and unique blends. Black Drop only uses the freshest beans that are roasted locally in small quantities from their exclusive roaster Goodlife Coffee Co, and their drink offering reflects (and tastes) that. No matter your drink or food order, they have a large assortment of fresh-baked goods to accompany it.
Taste The Black Drop Difference
Black Drop Coffee has a Registered Dietitian with a Masters Degree in Nutritional Sciences on staff and she — local mom, Melody DeGaetano — happens to be the owner. Ingredients and offerings on the Black Drop menu are purposeful and intentional. No matter what steers your choices — health, medical, or just preference in taste — they have you covered. Every detail has been thought through, even the water — one of the most overlooked components of coffee preparation yet it makes up more than 98% of your coffee drink. Black Drop’s state of the art water filtration system by New York WaterMaker™ produces a sweeter, brighter cup of coffee. They ensure purity and consistency from cube to cup — no matter what your drink order is.
