Let’s get one thing straight: we’re not your ordinary caffeine fix.
We leave ordinary to those drive-thru coffee shops that focus on speed over quality. Don’t get us wrong, our baristas are as fast as the other guys, but when you come to Cup o’ Joe, we want you to kick back, relax and enjoy the best cup of coffee in Columbus.
Our obsession with achieving the perfect cup of coffee started at Staufs in 1988 and led to the opening of the first Cup o’ Joe in German Village in 1994. In the years that followed, we researched the coffee you drink right down to the care and cultivation of the plant to the processing practices of coffee’s many international and dynamic flavors.
Cup o’ Joe’s expert buyers assess and purchase only the most distinctive and delightful beans. From Kenya’s fine acidity and Sumatra’s syrupy body to Costa Rica’s clean flavor, you will taste our expertise in every cup. Take a look at our numerous coffee offerings and you’ll see how far we go to bring you the best cup of coffee in Columbus.
To top that off, our coffee is the freshest in town. Even though our beans come from around the world, we roast them locally in our Columbus warehouse and deliver them to our seven Columbus coffee houses within 48 hours of roasting. We never roast beans before our stores need them—only as the orders come. You also won’t see us selling beans past their prime.
Whether you’re grabbing a quick cup of coffee before work or stopping by to relax or study, we guarantee you’ll taste the difference in our fresh, locally roasted coffee every time. That’s why we were voted 2010's Best Coffee House in Columbus by Alive, Columbus Monthly and 614 Magazine.
We’re not just another Columbus coffee shop. We’re the best.
