Introducing…Grimpeur Bros. Specialty Coffee’s River Road Peaberry Single Origin
Ahhhhh River Road…a smile crosses our face whenever we think about it. Most New Yorkers and way too many NY cyclists don’t know this lil’ road exists even though it’s 10 minutes from Washington Heights and 20 minutes from Times Square!
Crossing the GW Bridge, cyclists must turn left…no if, ands, or buts. Seriously. Go left, not right. Descend for a minute and hang a quick left, then BOOM…you are riding through spectacular woods on a small two laner with minimal if any traffic nestled between the Palisades and one of the largest, most majestic rivers in North America. The NY hustle and bustle instantly melts away. Birds sing. Chipmunks bounce around. Waterfalls fall. Gorgeous trees shade throughout. Ice and snow in the winter. And the two big climbs make for serious Grimpeur Bros. pleasure and effort. They hug the actual Palisades cliffs - the first climb we’ve always thought of as a hors d’oeuvre for the final, main course slog up to 9W. If you don’t start the last climb from the parking lot on the Hudson River, it doesn’t count. Ya gotta start from the bottom. And if you feel halfway decent, ya gotta race up to the Park Police Station. It hurts, but in a good way.
Grimpeur Bros.’s River Road Single Origin peaberry coffee brings a smile to our face every time we brew a cup. Historically, peaberry coffees - a mutation of the bean where only one seed grows instead of two, were thought of as defects. Modern day coffee culture has come to recognize the peaberry for its sweet characteristics. Just like the River Road route, it’s sweet, goregous, and fun. We selected this coffee because of it’s expressive body. When the summer heat kicks in, River Road Single Origin also makes a delicious iced-coffee. From the Grimpeur Bros. Specialty Coffee Brooklyn Headquarters, we present you with River Road Peaberry Single Origin, a beautiful, fruity peaberry coffee with a strong finish.
Ride Your Bike. Drink Great Coffee.
