Local Police Officer Opens Hudson Coffee Company in Hoboken

Police officer Justin DePascale didn’t like coffee and never drank it until being assigned to the Anti/Vice Squad narcotics unit working mostly evenings. Staying alert made drinking coffee a necessity, but over time, DePascale learned to appreciate the hot beverage. Now he can’t imagine life without delicious, high-quality coffee, and is bringing it to Hoboken at his new coffee bar, Hudson Coffee Company

“It’s surprising that I went from disliking coffee to having a real passion for it now,” said DePascale.  “I tasted some really bad brews during my years on the police force, so when I discovered truly good coffee, everything changed. I began to seek out specialty coffees and wanted to try different beans from around the world. I wanted to learn and understand more and became somewhat of a coffee connoisseur.” 

DePascale has progressed from coffee lover and connoisseur to businessman. He recently opened Hudson Coffee Company at 1100 Maxwell Lane on the site of the former Hoboken Maxwell House coffee plant, the largest coffee processing plant in the world through the early 1990s.

Hudson Coffee is committed to preserving the rich history of the landmark “mile-square.”  The industrial chic interior is a combination of its industrial past and the modern-day evolution of Maxwell Place. Nostalgic images of the old Maxwell House plant, Hudson waterfront shipyards, and more recent moments in Hoboken history adorn the walls. Some of the mounted artwork are photographs taken by DePascale, a Hoboken native whose family has deep roots in the community.

While Hudson Coffee pays homage to Maxwell House, DePascale emphasizes that the coffee is very different from the mass-produced big brand. Hudson Coffee is premium, artisanal-style coffee made from the highest-quality beans from all over the world. Hudson Coffee will also serve a selection of pastries, croissants, cookies, muffins and scones.  

“We’re committed to serving first-class coffee in a friendly, comfortable environment,” said DePascale. “We’re a local establishment that also wants to be a neighborhood gathering place.” To that end, Hudson Coffee will host entertainment, open mic nights, and other events for the public.

Hoboken Wellness Crawl

HOBOKEN GIRL HOSTS SECOND ANNUAL HOBOKEN WELLNESS CRAWL

HobokenGirl.com, the Hudson County website centered on all things Hoboken and Jersey City, is celebrating health and wellness in Hoboken with their 2nd Annual Hoboken Wellness Crawl.

The Hoboken Wellness Crawl will occur on Sunday, April 22nd, 2018 from 11:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M throughout Hoboken with over 80 businesses participating. $1 from every ticket sold is being donated to The Water Project, a charity focused on supplying clean drinking water for communities around the world. Last year the event drew in over 600 people, and more are expected this year.

“We’re so excited to be celebrating our 2nd annual event — and supporting local health and wellness businesses in the process. It’s an amazing thing to be able to walk around one square mile and visit all of these local businesses devoted to making us healthier and happier,” says founder Jennifer Casson Tripucka. “This year, hosting the crawl on Earth Day, we chose our charity of choice to be The Water Project, as it is committed to helping communities in need of clean drinking water around the world.”

HOBOKEN WELLNESS CRAWL

An entry ticket includes an exclusive map to the Hoboken Wellness Crawl and an entry bracelet used to walk around Hoboken and visit Wellness Stops (at participants’ leisure throughout the day — similar to a bar crawl, sans alcohol). Event-goers will also have access to four Wellness Hubs in Hoboken filled with wellness-focused table vendors. All vendors will be offering samples and giveaways. Over 70 Hudson County businesses are participating.

Tickets are available online here — and on crawl day can be presented at four designated check-in spots around Hoboken – Uptown (Fit Foundry – 1416 Willow Avenue), Downtown (Birch – 92 River Street), West (The Spine and Sports Health Center at the Monroe Center – 720 Monroe Street), and CarePoint Health (109 Grand Street).
