Art by Carter Thompson up on the wall

Harlem’s revival continues to heat up with the opening of ACP Coffee at 2286 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard (also known as Seventh Avenue) at 135th Street. The street and the café are named in honor of the first person of African-American descent to be elected from New York to Congress.

ACP is a brand new third-wave coffee shop that specializes in hand-crafted coffee. We feature single-origin Stumptown beans and use a variety of manual brewing techniques. We also feature small batch baked goods from Brooklyn and a variety of small, house-made healthy bites.

Our highly-skilled baristas are happy to take the time to explain the nuances and art that go into each individually created drink.

We will celebrate our grand opening this Friday, June 10, 2016 from 5:30 to 7:30 PM with a reception by local artist Carter Thompson (www.carter-thompson.com). Inspired by his Harlem home, Carter’s whimsical and sophisticated illustrations draw inspiration from the Harlem renaissance and the vibrancy of today.

ACP aspires to become a neighborhood staple of specialty coffee, as well as place for friends to meet and for others to share ideas and be inspired. “We are excited to be part of this growing community and look forward to serving all our neighbors in our cozy, inviting atmosphere.”

ACP is open 7 days a week, 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM on weekdays and 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM weekends.
