If you are anything like the staff of the Mirror, you understand that coffee is the most important meal of the day. Here on the Shore, we are very lucky to have the best coffee in the world roasted right here. We’re talking about Eastern Shore Coffee Roasters based just up the road in Northampton County.
Whether it’s Fog Cutter, Oyster Roast, Hog Island Sunrise, you can’t go wrong with these coffees.
If you happen to be in Cape Charles, you can now enjoy ESCR coffee in summertime refreshing flavors. The ESCR crew has opened a pop-up stand on Peach Street, the ESCR Nitro Shack CC. The location is where the Cape Charles Shaved Ice shack used to be located.
If you love cold, refreshing summer brews, this is the place for you.
Nitro coffee — cold brew coffee infused with nitrogen gas through a pressurized valve — first made a splash in third-wave coffee shops across the country and quickly became a favorite among serious coffee aficionados. You can now get Nitro Marsh Mud coffee at the pop-up. The Mirror staff found this to be the best nitro brew we’ve ever had–if you like nitro-cold brew, this is a must.
ESCR Nitro also offers regular ice coffee, nitro-infused Arnold Palmers (Ice tea and lemonade), Macha latte, and iced black teas…they even have housemade sodas (this is soda even soda haters will love).
For something sweet, floats made with Brown Dog vanilla ice cream are top shelf.
The Nitro Shack location is 15 Peach Street, and the pop-up hours are usually 3-8 Thursday thru Sunday. After a day at the beach, a cold treat from the ESCR Nitro Shack CC is just the thing to get you rolling again.
Seriously, this place is a great new edition to the Cape Charles Summer. You have to try it.
Note: Eastern Shore Coastal Roasting Co., sources only the very best ethically and sustainably sourced green coffees from around the world. Working very closely with brokers as well as growers, they are able to have full transparency thru the entire process from farm to cup in order to bring you the tastiest beans at the most reasonable price. Two words — Sustainability and Quality.

Look, I LOVE the fact that this shop is here. Long time coming. Tourists have been wanting this, I hear it on a daily basis.
But alas, my heart sank again after reading the entire article.
It is still useless because our tourists wander around in the early hours of the morning looking for coffee they cannot find.
So, we still are in need of a coffee shop that actually opens early when needed.
They don’t like waiting til 10am for someone to open up.
But, glad to have them anywhere
My heart sank to. I run a shop in town and love my morning coffee. When I read the house I was disappointed ☹️
Is that 3 AM to 8PM
Debbie Lewis says
No. It states 3-8pm
Kathleen Bahri says
No more shave ice?
Jackie is opening in a mobile operation on the beachfront soon!!
Eastern Shore Coffee Roasters.. And they don’t sell coffee…? What’s up with that….? And only open from 3pm to 8pm….?
Odd isn’t it?
Wait until 10:00 am for coffee in Cape Charles???? Scotiagirl doesn’t do that! Ever hear of Rayfields, Northampton Inn, and the restaurant that we knew as Tim’s Place…? Meet her at 8:00 am for COFFEE
I miss Tim’s I loved working there.

The Almeta. Located at Hotel CC, opens by 7am daily
Deborah Lewis says
Can anybody go to the hotel for coffee? Or just guests?
It makes no sense to open a coffee shop from 3pm to 8pm.
I am approached by tourists almost every day looking for coffee.
Just to clarify, this is a pop-up which focuses cold nitro-brews, cold brews, sodas, as well-as Arnold Palmers (ice tea and lemonade). These are afternoon refreshers, not morning wake-ups. As Mr. Gammino noted, there are lots of places to get your morning cuppa Joe in Cape Charles. The goal here was to offer something different without competing with places already in the morning coffee business.
Deborah Lewis says
Rayfields, as people wander up and down the street looking for coffee, by the time they get to Peach Street, they don’t want to walk down that far to Rayfields. And it is a pretty good hike from Peach Street
Cape Charles Coffee House opens later in the morning. When they do open, the line is so long, the wait in the long line is frustrating for our tourists.
Cape Charles Hotel has been noted duly. The tourists are getting a clear communication on if, (as non guests, they are permitted) to go in to obtain coffee.
To clarify what I am relating here, this info comes comes from the TOURISTS, not me. I am telling this because I hear it several times every morning. They are telling us (in large numbers) what they desire, so as the saying goes “ We need to supply what they demand.”
In my first comment I stated I was super happy to have them here. It is going to be a wonderful addition to our Cape Charles family.
But at times, we need to listen to our guests.
Dunkin Donuts on 13 would satisfy a lot of coffer drinkers, hot and cold! And it’s affordable for the average Joe.
Cape crusader says
Overpriced crap in a cup. This place and esrc are trash. Dont waste your money.
Debbie Lewis says
Will you tell us why you feel this way?
Makes it a bit difficult to read your comment, and expect us to comply without explaination.
Stuart Bell says
Green coffee beans are $5-8.00 per pound. Why would anyone pay someone an extra $10.00 per pound to roast their coffee for them? Humans love to work, just to give their money away so that they are forced to go work for it again and again and again.
