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.
