Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea has received a nod from Men’s Journal magazine as one of the 25 Best Coffee Roasters in America!
“We’re excited that Crimson Cup has gained another recognition that puts Columbus on the national map for great specialty coffee,” said Founder and President Greg Ubert. “This recognition is a testament to the hard work of the farmers who grow our coffee, hundreds of independent coffee shop customers in 29 states who serve our coffee, and our exceptional team of cuppers.”
The Men’s Journal list spotlights innovative, “almost-wholly independently owned” roasters that are rattling mainstream competition. Here’s how the editors described Crimson Cup:
“Roast magazine’s 2016 ‘Macro Roaster of the Year’ earned the accolade by bringing a human element to the logistical reality of a macro-roasting supply chain. Crimson Cup bridges the gap between grower and customer by advocating every level of the specialty coffee community, evidenced through their Friend2Farmer direct trade program, contributions to local and educational health initiatives, and by literally writing the book on how to start and sustain a responsible coffee business: 7 Steps to Success: A Common Sense Guide to Succeed in Specialty Coffee, by founder and president, Greg Ubert.
“Crimson Cup’s ‘LYFE’ philosophy—‘Leaving You Feeling Energized’—is the kind of proverbial Kool-Aid we’re willing to drink.”
