Mobile coffee pioneer Drew Crockett of the Penn-based Hub Bub Truck is getting a bricks (well, concrete)-and-mortar home on Jan. 14, in addition to the truck, which is parked weekdays at 38th and Spruce Streets.

Hub Bub Coffee Bar is coming to Three Logan Square (aka 1717 Arch), filling the ground-floor space that last was La Primavera Cafe. There's a wrap-around coffee bar, plus lots of reclaimed wood from an old barn and subway tiles.

Crockett, a 29-year-old Penn grad who traded in a New York finance career (the truck opened in 2009), will serve coffee and espresso (pulled from his La Marzocco GB/5) from small-batch producers including Fishtown's ReAnimator and Oregon's Stumptown. 

The shop will be open weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., while the truck hours are 7 to 3.
