About our Coffee
We proudly serve coffee sourced and roasted by Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea, named the Roast magazine’s 2016 Macro Roaster of the Year. Since 1991, Crimson Cup has roasted specialty and craft coffee in small batches.
Like wine, coffee quality depends on the climate in which it is grown. Rainfall, soil conditions, altitude and other environmental factors impact the flavor and quality of the beans. So, the Crimson Cup Coffee team travel the world’s coffee-growing regions – especially Africa, Central and South America, Indonesia and Hawaii – to find and buy the best-tasting coffee beans. More and more, they visit the small farmers who carefully tend coffee plants in remote, mountainous regions. Buying directly from farmers, helps the communities retain a larger share of the profits from their labors, improving the quality of life for their families and their communities. And improving the quality of the coffee we can bring home to you.
Crimson Cup imports 150-pound bags of green coffee to Columbus, Ohio each year. The Master Roaster then carefully roasts the green coffee beans in small batches. Under his guidance, each bean is roasted to perfection so that, when ground and brewed, it will release the subtly nuanced flavors of truly fine coffee. Depending upon its unique flavor characteristics, each coffee will be offered as a single-origin varietal or included in one of our signature blends.
The devotion to freshness ensures that you will get delicious coffee every time.
Crimson Cup is just as passionate about teaching coffee as they are about sourcing, roasting and drinking it. Learn more about the state-of-the art Crimson Cup Innovation Lab and check out courses available for all ranges of coffee aficionados.
