From There. To Here. To You.
Since 1991, roasting awesome coffee in small batches in Columbus, Ohio has been our passion and reason for existence. We are true coffee geeks, obsessed with bringing the best coffee in the world home to you.
We are proud to be the Roast Magazine 2016 Roaster of the Year recipient for the dedication and passion we put into every roast.
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, we 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.
We’re especially jazzed about sustainable, fairly traded and organic brews. More and more, we visit the small farmers who carefully tend coffee plants in remote, mountainous regions. By buying directly from farmers, we help them 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.
We import 150-pound bags of green coffee to our Worldwide Headquarters in Columbus, Ohio. Our 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.
Our devotion to freshness ensures that you will get delicious coffee every time. Whether you drink Crimson Cup at a coffee house or restaurant or brew it at home, you’re assured of a consistently awesome cup.
We’re just as passionate about teaching coffee as we are about sourcing, roasting and drinking it. If you’d like to learn more, check out entries on our blog about coffee beans, brewing methods and running your own coffee shop.
