Experience Columbus Coffee Week Was Awesome

No Comments

We love the emerging coffee scene in Columbus– and we’re excited that local media is taking notice too. Experience Columbus wrapped up their Coffee Week earlier this month. Here are some of the highlights: 

 

Experience Columbus interviewed our very own Mark Swanson.

The best cup of coffee is the cup you love.” Mark explains why he thinks Columbus is ripe for the coffee renaissance that is  beginning around town.

Look for: a shout-out to Jeni Britton-Bauer for “starting the creativity and risk taking” with her ingenious flavor combinations.

They also created this Coffee Itinerary

A tour-de-bean, mostly featuring Short North stops. A great showcase of local roasters and cafes.

Look for: Our Short North location. Customize the itinerary to add our German Village flagship store and our incredible Grandview roasters Stauf’s

Here is their list of the best iced coffee in Columbus– hint: we’re one of them!

A common misconception is that iced coffee is merely regular coffee over ice. But it is so much more. Check out this list of cold brews around town and taste the difference.

Look for: When Experience Columbus calls our iced toddy “smooth, rich and utterly delicious.”

 

“The best coffee near your hotel” 

For the out-of-town crowd, this coffee map is brilliant. We hope to see even more people leaving behind the convention center styrofoam cups and in-room stale coffee options to explore what the Columbus coffee scene really has to offer.

Look for: Our Short North location again. We are delighted to serve to the visitors from the convention center, hotels, and the many guests of Nationwide around the corner. Our downtown location is also walkable from many hotels.

ComFest Survival Guide

No Comments

ComFest is upon us, Columbus. There are many things to remember about the “party with a purpose,” here are a few of the essentials:

 

1. Water

you gotta hydrate, man, or the party will end real fast

 

 

 

2. Traffic avoidance

take COTA, use the free bicycle valet, or come hang at our Short North location with a cup of coffee until the traffic bleeds out.  And for the love of all that is ComFest– don’t drive if you’ve been drinking!

 

3. Shade

we know you weekend warriors don’t have time to worry about things like “sunscreen” and “shirts.” But remember to take some breaks from the hot sun. We’ve got a whole roof and a few umbrellas at our Short North location.

 

4. Caffeine

we’ve got it hot or iced.

what more do we need to say?

 

 

 

 

5. Sustenance

those 32 ounce mugs used to go down real quick, and the new 20 ouncers will go down even faster. So be sure to get some carbs in there to soak up all that sweet, sweet ComFest beer. MoJoe Short North has a full menu, including vegetarian options, in case you get tired of churros and funnel cake….

Additionally, Columbus Alive recently named MoJoe Lounge Short North as the best patio to people watch in Columbus. Our full-sun patio is unique to the Short North and the open, airy, unobstructed view provides a great people-watching vantage. The summer drink menu is fresh and chilly for the hot days ahead. Add a great proximity to all that the Short North arts district has to offer and a brief walk to Goodale Park, the Clipper’s Stadium, and the LC Pavilion– and you’ve got a winning spot.

The Cup o’ Joe Experience

No Comments

Let’s get one thing straight: we’re not your ordinary caffeine fix.

We leave ordinary to those drive-thru coffee shops that focus on speed over quality. Don’t get us wrong, our baristas are as fast as the other guys, but when you come to Cup o’ Joe, we want you to kick back, relax and enjoy the best cup of coffee in Columbus.

Our obsession with achieving the perfect cup of coffee started at Staufs in 1988 and since our humble beginnings, we’ve researched the coffee you drink right down to the care and cultivation of the plant to the best roast profile for each bean.

Cup o’ Joe’s expert buyers assess and purchase only the most distinctive and delightful beans. From Kenya’s fine acidity and Sumatra’s syrupy body to Costa Rica’s clean flavor, you will taste our expertise in every cup. Take a look at our numerous coffee offerings and you’ll see how far we go to bring you the best cup of coffee in Columbus.

To top that off, our coffee is the freshest in town.  Even though our beans come from around the world, we roast them locally at our Columbus roastery and deliver them to our eight Columbus coffee houses within 48 hours of roasting. We never roast beans before our stores need them—only as the orders come. You also won’t see us selling beans past their prime.

Whether you’re grabbing a quick cup of coffee before work or stopping by to relax or study, we guarantee you’ll taste the difference in our fresh, locally roasted coffee every time. That’s why we were voted 2010′s Best Coffee House in Columbus by Alive, Columbus Monthly and 614 Magazine.

We’re not just another Columbus coffee shop. We’re the best.
