Hub Bub Coffee finds a new home
CENTER CITY - January 24, 2013 (WPVI) -- With donut shops, burger joints, convenience stores and that big national chain all competing for your coffee loyalty, maybe you wonder why a local businessman thinks Center City needs another café. But Drew Crockett is no dreamer.
He's a business school graduate who parleyed his education into a wildly-successful coffee truck on the Penn campus.
The Hub Bub truck remains a fixture on 38th Street. But now, Crockett is taking his exclusive products downtown, opening the Hub Bub Café in Three Logan Square...the former Bell Atlantic Tower at 1717 Arch Street.
It's right across the street from the Comcast Center. Like the truck, the cafe's business is founded on Crockett's idea of the perfect cup of coffee. He partners with Oregon's Stumptown Coffee Company to obtain hand-selected beans in several varieties.
They're roasted according to his specifications at Stumptown's plant in New York City.
Beans are fresh-ground at the cafe and brewed into whatever you order...coffee, espresso, and, at the Center City location, many more options.
Baristas are graduates of Crockett's training program, so they're able to answer any question you might have, from where the beans are grown to how your individual drink was prepared.
Like the truck, the cafe offers coffee-friendly accompaniments such as pastry. You may also buy Hub Bub's coffees bagged to take home and fresh-grind yourself.
The new cafe is open weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and closed on weekends.
For more information, visit the company's website, Hub Bub Coffee.
