Columbus is a great city for the coffee-lover. The availability of well-sourced and meticulously roasted beans is impressive, and the deep knowledge of coffee preparation found at our better purveyors amounts to a tremendous wealth of useful information waiting to be tapped.
And so, with that, we are proud to present our Coffee Tour. The format is simple: we’ll visit a roaster to learn about what goes into turning raw coffee beans into something exquisite, a top espresso bar to discuss turning those beans into top quality espresso drinks, and a premier coffee shop to learn about how to get the best from your beans at home. At each stop there will be coffee and snacks, and – most importantly – plenty of information on how to get the best out of home coffee preparation!
Our first stop will be Cafe Brioso downtown where we will discuss espresso drinks and learn more about the art of the barista from their talented team. Our second stop will be at the roasting facility at Stauf’s where we will get a behind the scenes look at the art and science of roasting. We will also do a cupping and learn about how coffees are sourced and selected. Our final stop will be at Luck Bros in Grandview to hear from Andy Luck about how to improve your coffee making at home.
This tour runs quarterly. The tour includes transport, coffee samples, and food and some coffee beans to take home.
