New Jersey Town Named One of the Best in America for Coffee
New Jersey's got good java, with one Garden State town making a new list of the top spots for coffee in the whole United States
The study was conducted by Rent.com, examining cities with criteria like 'single-origin artisan brew' and 'third-wave specialty coffee', according to the website.
While recognizing that big name coffee chains (Starbucks, Dunkin', Tim Horton's) will always have a place in the national coffee landscape, Rent.com was reportedly interested in boutique coffee shops across the nation and the drips they have to offer.
Pacific Northwest states like California, Washington, and Oregon dominated the list's Top 10 (Seattle was #1), but right here in New Jersey, Rent.com found that Jersey City in Hudson County deserved to make the list at #14.
Other factors considered (and apparently met by Jersey City) were town population, local coffee businesses per density, and percentage of local coffee businesses.

Jersey City reached the Top 15 thanks to places like The Grind Shop, Hybrid Coffee & Kitchen, Modcup, and Treehouse Coffee Shop.
The town's local coffee businesses per density is reportedly 2.13, with a percentage of local coffee businesses at 50.79 percent.
