Kuppi Coffee Company setting up shop on 1st Avenue and St. Mark's Place this summer

The Edgewater, N.J.-based Kuppi Coffee Company is opening its second outpost this summer at 131 First Ave. (aka 82 St. Mark's Place). 

The coffee shop has been sharing photos of the under-renovation space...


In 2018, Architectural Digest named Kuppi the "Most Beautiful Coffee Shop" in New Jersey, noting: "White-washed exposed-brick walls and hung flower boxes — brimming with greenery — bring the outdoors in at Kuppi Coffee Company ..." 

The previous tenant at the address, AO Bowl, closed last August after an off-and-on 18 months in business ... and blaming Sen. Schumer.

In 2019, workers gutted this single-level structure on the corner ... and divided the storefront into several retail spaces. The other tenant here is the Brooklyn Dumpling Shop.

The former occupant, Foot Gear Plus, closed in July 2018 after nearly 40 years in business.

These tiny random coffee places must really be brave to try to compete with 40 others that have popped up over the past month. Even big capital gave up their blank street outpost here.
