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.

Thank you Columbus!

Joe Pumpkin Returns

Fall is the season for warm and delicious.

Columbus may have jumped from winter straight to summer this year, but there can be no doubt that fall has arrived. And with the turning leaves and crisp breeze, Joe Pumpkin has returned. Columbus coffee lovers have long applauded the delicious combo of rich Cup O Joe espresso, silky steamed milk and house-made Joe Pumpkin. Topped with whipped cream, cinnamon, and a light drizzling of  caramel, it is easily the king of fall drinks.

Stop into any Cup o’ Joe location for yours today!

try our tasty Toffee Freeze

It is barely summer and this one already promises to be a scorcher. What’s an Ohioan to do when the capital city is hot with a capital H?

Try one of Cup O Joe’s extensive menu of frozen treats. Each location offers a selection of blended and iced drinks designed to cool you down and pump you up.

The Joe Freeze, our traditional blended coffee and espresso drink, has several flavor variations to sweeten it up.

Featuring frozen coffee and espresso twirled with caramel and chocolate, the Toffee Freeze is topped with whipped cream, and she’s a real beauty.

If you want the cool minus the caffeine, there are always our real fruit smoothies. The honey vanilla banana is a Cup O Joe original and we’ve always got the classics, like strawberry banana and orange mango banana, too!

At Cup O’ Joe we are obsessed with the entire process of achieving the finest cup of coffee - from acquiring the best green Arabica beans from around the world–to roasting exclusively on gas-fired coffee roasters. All of the specialty coffees we offer are roasted by us, by hand, everyday.

Meet Rich and Tom, the two guys who make our beans happen.

Remember being a kid in science class, grumbling about how you’ll never use any of this stuff?

Hate to say it folks, but when you drink Cup O’ Joe coffee, you’re using all that “science stuff.”  Well, drinking it at least.

Everyday our master roasters (and resident scientists), Rich and Tom, brave breathing coffee bean dust to roast the best beans in Columbus.  And as you can see above, they do it happily.  (While it looks like a mere smirk, for Tom, that is a big smile.)

After roasting, we test the beans using an Agtron Spectrophotometer that uses near-infrared light to measure the color and consistency of all our roasts.

When a batch of beans comes out of the roaster, we take two samples, one whole bean and one ground, and measure each in the Agtron.  The resolution and accuracy of this coffee roast analyzer provides previously unobtainable quantification of the roasting process.     We chart this reading along with the roast time which allows us to maintain regular taste profiles.

Believe us, you can taste the experience of our master roasters in every cup of Cup O’ Joe coffee you drink.

If you’re looking for the top coffee connosieurs in Columbus, look no farther than Rich and Tom, the scientists behind our complex, fresh-roasted taste.
