Ride to A Better Mood
We look forward to welcoming you!
Born In Italy. Perfected in New York City.
We put the cart before the horse, so to speak, when we founded Caffè Aronne. Except, in our case, the cart was a 1978 Piaggio Ape we got straight from Italy. We fell in love with this little vintage wonder while vacationing, and knew we had to bring her back to the states. Now dubbed Pisa, we’ve brought her full circle. In her first life, she transported food through the narrow streets of Italy. In her second life, she’s transporting coffee all across New York.
Over the years, I’ve been a frequent traveller to Italy, trying to make the journey at least once a year. In Italy, coffee is like water; citizens drink it day and night and, believe me, the experience of indulging in northern Italian coffee will forever change your expectations in regards to java. On my various trips, I began to learn how to craft the perfect espresso - pure, luscious, and creamy. When I decided to open my own coffee business in the states, I wanted to do it right.Our Story
Watch Your Guests Pour In The Love
We offer the best Brazilian, French, and Italian beans because we believe one single country cannot provide for all the different taste buds in New York City.
We import our beans from all over the world, roast them in Hudson Valley ourselves, pop them on one of our apes and ride as fast as we can to you.View Our Menus
New York's first apé espresso bar.
An ape, pronounce "ah-peh", is a trike built to squeeze through the narrow roads of Italy. Built after the Second World War, the ape has been a popular and crucial vehicle on the roads all over Europe and one of them even immigrated to New York to serve you coffee!
What does this mean? We can serve you coffee in any nook and cranny of New York. Whether you're on on the 75th floor or down an alleyway in Brooklyn, we can make it to you.
