About us

Paper Plane Coffee Co.

Inspired by Five Generations of Coffee and the American Grind

Embark on a journey that traces its roots to the picturesque Colombian Mountains, in the town of Sanuario Risaralda, just below the Paper Plains. It was here, approximately 160 years ago, that our family's enduring love affair with coffee began, laying the foundation for what would become Paper Plane Coffee Co.

Established in Brooklyn in 2015 and finding its home in Montclair, NJ, in 2019, Paper Plane Coffee Co. has become more than a coffeehouse—it's a celebration of tradition, innovation, and the pursuit of exceptional coffee. In 2023, we proudly opened the doors to our expanded flagship cafe at 61 N Fullerton Ave, marking a new chapter in our dedication to the craft.

Acknowledged as the 3rd Best Coffee Shop in the state of NJ by the Star Ledger and NJdotcom, our commitment to quality has not only earned accolades but also secured a place for our retail coffee bags at local Whole Foods Markets across NJ. We've graced the pages of prestigious publications, with features in Imbibe magazine, The Washington Post, and Eater, sharing our passion for the perfect cup.

The name Paper Plane is more than just a moniker; it's a play on words, a nod to our secondary farm, nestled higher in the mountain plains, Los Planes De San Rafael, where we grew eucalyptus for the national paper company, Carton Colombia., thus having earned its nickname, the Paper Plains. This symbiotic relationship between land and legacy makes the Paper Plains truly unique, and it's this very uniqueness that infuses every cup of Paper Plane coffee.

At Paper Plane Coffee Co., we're not just roasters; we're custodians of tradition and champions of innovation. Our focus on specialty coffee marries traditional values with third-wave concepts, all while upholding fair green coffee purchasing and eco-friendly practices. It's not just about brewing coffee; it's about crafting an experience that transcends the ordinary.

Beyond the cup, we extend our commitment through wholesale partnerships, comprehensive training programs, and cutting-edge machinery. Whether you're a fellow coffee enthusiast, a discerning cafe owner, or an aspiring barista, we invite you to join us on this journey of taste, heritage, and excellence.
