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.

Most of the time I’m in and out so quick, I only do small talk. I always dig the cappuccino art…
Oh yeah. There was this one moment that I thought was pretty cool. I was in for breakfast on Saturday with my three daughters Olivia, Sophia and Isabella. Isabella, the littlest at 5yrs old, had a bit of a spill. Well, a lot of a spill actually. The three girls all got hot chocolates and I a coffee. After repeatingly telling Izzy that her hot cocoa was EXTREMELY hot, she takes a monster swig. She’s spits it out and proceeds to go a little ape. She not only spilled her drink, but all of ours in the process. She was so embarrassed. But, Elijah was nice about the ordeal, staying cool and collected. He came right over, cleaned-up the mess all the while making Izzy feel cool and helping put that smile back on her face. Nice…

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….

Joe Pumpkin Returns

No Comments

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!
