The story talks about the growing trend of local coffee roasters in Columbus.
“Columbus loves its coffee,” writes reporter, John Ross. “More than ever, though, its brew is being prepared locally in small batches by indie roasters who control recipes and wrest optimal flavor from top-quality raw goods.”
Residents of Olde Towne East have known for some time that there is something special about the coffee at Upper Cup. We’re glad to see that others are realizing it too.
From the article:
Defined by exposed brick, 20-foot ceilings and windows that overlook Parsons Avenue, the store has become a meeting place for a neighborhood in need of quality coffee. Customers come in to buy bulk roasted beans and to work via laptop while sipping handcrafted cups.
The roaster remains front and center, churning out batches of Harar from Ethiopia, La Minita from Costa Rica and Montanha de Diamante from Brazil.
“The neighborhood has been awesome,” Micael Habte said. “I couldn’t have asked for a better place to grow my business.”
