Who: Crimson Cup
When: December Box (2016)
What They Say:
Since 1991, Crimson Cup’s passion has been roasting awesome coffee in small batches in Columbus, Ohio. In 2016, Roast Magazine awarded them the 2016 Roaster of the Year award for their dedication and passion put into every roast.
They're especially jazzed about sustainable, fairly traded and organic brews. More and more, the Crimson Cup team visit the small farmers who carefully tend coffee plants in remote, mountainous regions. By buying directly from farmers, it helps them retain a larger share of the profits from their labors, improving the quality of life for their families and their communities, all while improving the quality of the coffee that ends up at home with you.
Their devotion to freshness ensures that you will get delicious coffee every time. Whether you drink Crimson Cup at a coffee house or restaurant or brew it at home, you’re assured of a consistently awesome cup!
Why We Picked Them:
It's very obvious why we picked Crimson Cup. They were both recommended to us by a close friend - who brewed us a cup of the Kossa Kebena - and then we saw their awards for this bean, a 93 from Coffee Review, and a Golden Bean award from the Coffee Roasters Competition 2016, not to mention winning the 2016 Roaster of the Year award. With all that stacked up together, it's a no brainer why we featured this bean, and Crimson Cup for December. Our Holidays gift to all Boxo Coffee Subscribers!
We hope you love it, and are ready for even more awesomeness in 2017!
