Pushing boundaries in material science to make the world a brighter place

Crimson Cup

At Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea, our passion to create awesome coffee and meaningful connections runs deep. A national leader in coffee roasting and education, Crimson Cup is Roast magazine’s 2016 Macro Roaster of the Year.

Launched in 1991 by Greg Ubert, Crimson Cup teaches independent coffee shop owners how to be successful through the Seven Steps to Success program. We work directly with small plot coffee farmers around the world to improve coffee quality and quality of life. And, we hand-roast each bean to preserve the integrity of the farmer’s hard work.

Headquartered in Columbus, we serve customers in more than 350 coffee houses, colleges, restaurants, specialty grocers and food service operations across the country, Guam and Bangladesh. Locally, we have coffee houses in Clintonville and Upper Arlington, a NEW Innovation Lab and a roasting and distribution facility. Innovation? We love crafting incredible drinks—Cold Brew Nitro and Coffee Cocktails are just a few to enjoy.
