ERIE ISLAND COMPANY
"Founded by a crew of four coffee enthusiasts (a TV producer, a photographer, a ferry boat captain, and, thank goodness, a Starbuck's manager) ... with the opening of their first shop on Kelleys Island."
CRIMSON CUP COFFEE
"Roasting coffee is both art and science, and our master roasters use decades of experience and enhanced technology to identify the perfect roasting curve for each coffee."
ZINGERMAN'S COFFEE COMPANY
"Minerals in the soil influence the body and acidity of coffee; higher altitude makes for a sweeter, higher-quality coffee (on account of lower temperatures, rather than the elevation itself)."
SILVER BRIDGE COFFEE
"Our flavored coffees are free of solvents and chemicals often used to flavor coffee. They are gluten free, vegan friendly, and Kosher certified."
"I worked at the student-run coffee shop on UD’s campus when I was a business student and fell in love with coffee. Reza is my middle son’s middle name and when I started this business, I had 3 little boys under five who I would drag along to the roastery with me while I roasted and bagged coffee. They had their own little play room there. The boys have traveled all over the world with me to visit coffee farms we buy from. ... I am proud to provide Dayton with high quality, ethically sourced coffee that I roast fresh each week."
BOSTON STOKER COFFEE CO.
"Harnessing coffee at its peak flavor starts with finding the best quality beans through direct sourcing and supporting the farmers who grow them. Better care for the farmers means better conditions for the crops, means better coffee for you. We roast more than 150,000 lbs of coffee annually in small batches ranging from 25 to 150 lbs. All orders are roasted fresh daily and cupped by our quality control team. Each roast is designed to capture each varietal of coffee at its peak flavor. From start to finish, a better bean."
EQUAL EXCHANGE FAIRLY TRADED COFFEE
"We were founded with an unusual mission—to create a new model of bringing the best coffee from farmers to consumers in a manner that's direct, fair, and sustainable to all involved: the environment, the farmers, our employees, and customers."
TWISTED RIVER COFFEE ROASTER
"Roasting coffee in small batches gives us more control in the roast profile of the beans. More control means that we are able to pull out the natural flavors of each coffee."
ROOTED GROUNDS COFFEE
"Over the years we've supported amazing causes, such as The Marvin Lewis Community Fund, The Flying Pig Charities, Bogg Ministries, UC Foundation, Kettering Foundation, Feed the Children and The Second&Seven Foundation. Giving back is at the very core of who we are. When you purchase Rooted Grounds Coffee, you are helping us help others."
