CRESSKILL, N.J. -- Goksun Ozhan said she loves a good cup of coffee and all the things that go with it such as nice conversation with friends.

And so, sensing a need in her Cresskill community, she opened CU Latte in April 2014. "Cresskill did not have a place like this so we decided to move forward," she said.

That meant going organic, and serving only single origin Fair Trade coffee. The shop also offers sweet and savory crepes and paninis made to order along with Balthazar Bakery croissants and scones.

Seasonal flavors are also featured and, at the moment, include pumpkin spice, toasted marshmallow and gingerbread items.

As to what makes the coffee shop successful, Ozhan said it's the passion and sense of camaraderie.

The shop is set up with both counter seating, cozy sofas and free Wi-Fi which encourages sipping and lingering.

"Everyone who works here is passionate about coffee and the food we serve," she said. "We love what we do and I think this reflects on our service. We are very happy to see locals come together, make new friends and discuss community affairs and our children."
