JP IbertiCheck it Out
Working for his father at France’s top produce distributor and growing up in the restaurant industry, JP had an idea of what it would take to make La Colombe into America’s leading culinary coffee. His experience in the high-pressure restaurant environment allowed La Colombe to quickly gain ground with some of the country's top chefs, resulting in a large and successful wholesale program.
To observe JP’s reverence for great craftsmanship, one need look no further than La Colombe's flagship café and bakery in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. Industrial, modern design elements fit seamlessly alongside a custom wood-fired oven, a vintage espresso machine, and an antique rum distilling operation. The crown jewel in a string of beautiful cafes, La Colombe Fishtown is a physical expression of JP's dedication to aesthetic beauty, craft-urban culture, and timeless quality.
