Sea Salt Mint White Mocha Cookies

Chocolate Cake with Coffee Frosting

I work evenings in the operating room at our local hospital. Since getting away for meals can be difficult, we occasionally plan potlucks.

Coffee Bean Bark

Chopped coffee beans add a yummy crunch to this pretty two-toned bark. Coffee lovers won’t be able to resist pieces of the chocolaty candy treat. —Anne Addesso, Sheboygan, Wisconsin

When it comes to caffeine, nothing beats a great espresso. It’s the foundation of a delicious and intense cup of coffee that allows you to taste specialty coffee beans, whether it’s an espresso shot, a macchiato, an americano or a classic drip coffee.

What makes a morning cup of coffee even better? A pastry, of course. We’ve collected a handful of recommendations to make your breakfast experience even better.

The Copenhagener, also known as Tebirkes in Denmark, is a Danish puff pastry filled with marzipan and topped with poppyseeds. Light and airy, this traditional Danish treat is perfect for any time of day.
For those who prefer a classic Croissant, we have those too! These laminated dough pastries go especially well with a quick shot of espresso or macchiato when you are on the go or looking for something delicious and quick when you’re in a rush.

If you are looking for something more filling, visit us a quick and healthy breakfast. We recommend our seasonal vegan overnight oats, made with chia seeds, coconut yogurt and fresh fruits. Another option would be our smoked salmon sandwich, made with cucumber, radish, watercress, shallot & chive cream cheese on a salt & pepper roll – a filling breakfast that goes well with a strong cup of black coffee.


With our careful selection of coffee beans, blends and tasting notes there are almost endless possibilities to the very much-loved the black coffee. Here we talk about the classic milk coffee variants, choose a Latte, a Cappuccino, a Cortado or a Flat White if you want more flavor of coffee in your milk coffee.

Coffee with milk goes incredibly well with pastries or cakes, and here we have selected a few that we ourselves and our customers love to enjoy together.

Our Danish pastries are a great option to choose for when it comes to coffee foods, they are freshly baked throughout the day and each of our pastries are hand-crafted. Try our vanilla spandauer, a classic Danish puff pastry filled with vanilla custard, white icing and almonds, the spandauer also comes with raspberry and is filled with raspberry marmalade for a sweet and sour sensation. If you are looking for something sweet to go with your latte or your cortado try a Gateau Marcel which is a gluten-free chocolate cake filled with a silky, smooth chocolate mousse and is a perfect match for a coffee with milk.


Hot chocolate is a winner both for kids and adults, the sweet drink keeps everybody happy and it’s a great option for cold days or cozy nights. A hot chocolate is also one of the best drinks to enjoy with something sweet or savering on the site, it just makes the experience so much better for everybody. Try it with our dark chocolate marshmallow puff with whipped marshmallow, dark chocolate and a marzipan base, because who doesn’t just love marshmallow and hot chocolate?

If you are more into tea – don’t worry we got you. We have always stock a huge variety of different tea tastes, whether you want a Sencha green tea, peppermint, lemon grass & ginger, a herb harmony tea or just a classic ear grey. If you are more of a tea connoisseur we also do nine spice fresh chai and honey tea, a chamellia chai spice and a favorite of ours; the matcha green tea latte.

Tea and cake is also a classic comb, and we would very much recommend to pair your tea of choice with our home-made and hand-crafted Danish pastries, like our Cinnamon Social™ which is a soft dough pastry with vanilla custard cinnamon filling and white icing, we also have this taste in a cinnamon swirl, you should also try our chocolate swirl with also is a Danish puff pastry with a shortcrust base, chocolate filling, and chocolate icing, the cake is very loved all around Scandinavia.

Our mission

To source, roast and serve remarkable coffees, learn continuously and foster community, to be good people and have fun.

About us

Founded in 2007 in Jacksonville, Florida, Bold Bean Coffee Roasters was started on the idea coffee can and should be inspirational.  We believe that when done right, coffee should increase the quality of life for those consuming it and be sustainable for all of those in the production chain.  We were first drawn to coffee by the idea of continuous learning and the never-ending quest for perfection and were further drawn to it when we realized its potential for making people happy.

Since the beginning, we have been focused on providing differentiated, specialty coffees and intentional service to Jacksonville and beyond.  We focus on building relationships, throughout our supply chain which are highlighted by mutual respect and understanding as well as economic and environmental sustainability.  This model of doing business allows us to source the best coffees available, roast them precisely and deliver them to our customers at the peak of freshness.  We believe that great coffee can be experiential and, if approached properly, that it can be the catalyst for positive, local and cross-national change.

Now, more than ever, we are excited to be creating beautiful coffees for the bold hearted.

Simply the best coffee in Jersey City. Beans are roasted perfectly and consistently, with unique single origin options. Espresso shots are deftly pulled. Plenty of drink options that all let the taste of the coffee shine through. If you have been getting your coffee anywhere else, you’ve been missing out.

The smoothest cappuccino in all of jersey city! Always greeted by employees behind the counter with a warm greeting. They take time to make your coffee and not rush it. Always gonna get my coffee from here!

There are now a ton of coffee shops in the area and I spread my business around some as different places do different things better or I’ll just stop on my way past one or another, but today as I was drinking a latte from Rabble & Lion I realized that it is certainly my favorite one in the area.

One of the best monkey breads in my experience. I’m not a regular coffee drinker anymore, and I really liked my beverage—with oat milk. It’s a cool, small, efficient space with a crowd-pleasing selection of vinyls for sale, and growing. With windows, and facade facing South West direction, the late morning sunlight fills the space very beautifully.

My daughter and son-in-law live in Jersey City and are coffee aficionados. They know I love coffee and brought some for Thanksgiving. We just tried the Papua New Guinea and it is amazing. We have not tried the other two blends they brought with them to Boston but tomorrow morning should definitely be a treat. Much to give thanks for.
