If you're yearning for a taste of Europe without the long-haul flight, look no further than Kaffa Espresso Bar in Jersey City. Nestled on the corner of Monmouth and Newark Ave, this new coffee shop captures the essence of a quaint European café, transporting you to a world of laid-back charm and aromatic coffee.

What sets Kaffa Espresso Bar apart is the authentic European touch brought by its founders, who hail from small towns in Europe. Their passion for creating a genuine European coffee shop experience shines through every detail, from the warm ambiance to the carefully crafted menu items.

Interestingly, the name "Kaffa" pays homage to a province in Ethiopia that holds a significant place in coffee history. It was in Kaffa that the discovery of coffee beans took place, forever changing the world's relationship with this beloved beverage. At Kaffa Espresso Bar, you can expect to indulge in the rich heritage of coffee and savor every sip.

On my visit to Kaffa, I had the pleasure of trying their freshly made, warm chocolate-filled croissant, accompanied by a "kaffa" - the unique name for a cup of coffee hailing from the original province. The croissant was a delightful treat, oozing with luscious chocolate (check out our reel on instagram to see!) and complemented perfectly by the aromatic coffee.

Pedja, the head barista at Kaffa, is a true artist when it comes to coffee. As I sat near the window, admiring the view of Newark Ave, I observed Pedja's dedication to his craft. With a warm smile and genuine interest, he engaged each customer, offering personalized recommendations and ensuring their coffee experience was nothing short of exceptional.

As a self-proclaimed tiramisu enthusiast, I couldn't resist when they suggested I try their fresh and locally made tiramisu. Light, delicate, and infused with the essence of their famous espresso, this heavenly dessert was a true masterpiece. Each bite transported me to the streets of Italy, and I savored every moment.

Beyond their delectable treats and expertly brewed coffee, Kaffa Espresso Bar also provides a welcoming atmosphere that invites patrons to stay awhile. The cozy seating, soothing background music, and friendly staff create an ambiance perfect for relaxing, catching up with friends, or even finding inspiration for creative endeavors.
