Madison-based independent coffee cafe opening second location in space formerly occupied by Greenberry's, which closed in early 2012.
A Greenberry's-sized void in Morristown's coffee culture is expected to be filled sometime in March. Drip Coffee, which has been open in Madison since September 2008, is coming to town. Rupert Jones, owner and operator of the Main Street cafe, confirmed he and business partner Sandy Mathews have purchased the building formerly occupied by Greenberry's Coffee and Tea on the Green and are opening a second Drip Coffee location sometime in March. "We kept it under wraps for awhile," said Jones, who had previously lived in Morristown for 20 years and was eager to expand the Drip Coffee brand into the town. "I have a great deal of affection for the town." The sale for an undisclosed amount was finalized at the end of December. The location …

The coffee giant's second run in town celebrated its first year back on Friday.
A lot can change in a year. Places opened and places closed. In Morristown Patch's first year, Starbucks was a business that once had called Morristown home. But, on July 13, from 3 to 5 p.m., it celebrated its first year back in town with live music from Kings Road, freebies and a call for donations to the Community Soup Kitchen. What a difference a year can make.

Anniversary event set for Friday from 3 to 5 p.m.
It was just about one year ago that an old familiar face returned to the Green in Morristown. Has it already been a year? Starbucks Coffee will be celebrating its one-year anniversary back in Morristown from 3 to 5 p.m. Friday, July 13. Musical entertainment will be supplied by Kings Road and canned goods will be accepted for donation to The Community Soup Kitchen. Once the only coffee shop in town–on the bottom floor of the Epstein's Department Store–Starbucks now has competition on all sides, including Zebu Forno, SmartWorld and Cafe on the Green. Greenberry's Coffee and Tea, also on the Green, closed earlier this year.

Sign on business noted coffee shop closed "until further notice."
Caffeine junkies were disappointed Wednesday morning to find that, in an attempt to grab their Frappucinos and Lattes at the Morristown Starbucks, all they were able to grab was a locked door. A sign was placed on the store window, indicating the Morristown Starbucks was "closed until further notice for maintenance." Turns out it's not much to worry about, according to Debra Tantleff, of Roseland Property Companies, which manages the 40 Park building. "Poorly worded sign on their part," she wrote in an email Wednesday morning. "They are doing some equipment maintenance." Fret not, frapp fans: the coffee giant was back open before lunch.

The popular coffee chain is using critters to color its Strawberry Frappuccinos.
Thursday, March 29, 2012
When you order a frothy, fruity drink from Starbucks, do you know exactly what you're drinking? News 12 NJ reports calories may not be the only thing Starbucks patrons could be worrying about. The company recently began using beetles found in South Africa and Mexico to color its Strawberry Frappuccinos. According to the article, "The ingredient is used in many other food products and is FDA approved." Tell us: are you OK with beetles being used to color your drinks?

Ribbon-cutting, music and the mayor serving drinks mark Grand Opening July 22.
The temperature hit 101 in Morristown on July 22, but it was nice and cool in Starbucks on the Green in Morristown, which celebrated its official "Grand Opening," complete with ribbon cutting from Mayor Tim Dougherty. The event featured free music, chilly A/C and the opportunity to see the mayor serve customers behind the counter.

The fanfare opening is set for Friday, July 22.
Without any fanfare, Starbucks opened its doors in its new corner location at 40 Park after a long sabbatical. Traffic was brisk, and loyal patrons said they were thrilled to have the java giant back in town. Starbucks returns to a very different coffee climate in Morristown, however. When they left the old Epstein's building several years ago, they were the only game in town. Today, Greenberry's, SmartWorld and, to a lesser coffee-centric extent, Zebu Forno provide additional caffeine competition. A grand opening event at Starbucks is scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, July 22.

The java giant is returning to Morristown on Friday, July 15. Will you be on line for a latte?
On July 15, a former tenant returns to Morristown after a multi-year absence. While many are percolating with excitement, others have grounds for concern. Since Starbucks moved out of the old Epstein's building–now the location of the 40 Park luxury condo development–a lot has changed in Morristown. Relevant to their return (in practically the same location), several coffee-centric businesses–Greenberry's, SmartWorld and, to a less coffee-specific degree, Zebu Forno–have set down roots here. Which means a caffeine-fueled competition is about to be brewed. What is your take? Will you be heading to Starbucks when they open on Friday? Or, is your espresso allegiance elsewhere? Also, are they any more coffee-related puns we can fit into this? …

Also, The Jury Box preparing to open near Morris County Courthouse.
Anyone near 40 Park and the Green recently may have noticed a sign of the times. Or, in this case, several. The location for Starbucks, which earlier this year announced it would be returning to Morristown, recently unveiled its outdoor signs, in anticipation of reopening this month at the corner of the 40 Park luxury development. Also recently, the former site "N' All That Jazz Cafe" finally has a new tenant. Signs for The Jury Box, a deli and coffee shop, is expected to open soon on the corner of Washington and Court streets, right near the Morris County Courthouse (The Jury Box ... get it?).
