Tags: Baba Budan coffee, Stauf's Coffee Shop Review
We’ve traveled through Columbus Ohio on I-71 many times without exploring what coffee roasters might be available simply by taking a short detour off the freeway. Well, enough is enough, so I went online and picked Stauf’s to be our first Columbus coffee roasters’ visit. Stauf’s (www.staufs.com) is located at 1277 Grandview Ave. Getting there we also passed our favorite peanut butter producer without knowing we would.
Stauf’s is located on a nice little street with a number of restaurants and shops nearby. There is a patio area with tables and chairs right in front of the shop. You are greeted by the smell of coffee as you walk in. To your right is their flavored coffee and there is a lot of it. I’m not a flavored coffee fan but just a little walk and turn to the left and there is the coffee!
We were also greeted by a helpful salesman by the name of Andy. He offered assistance and information and was not pushy. He answered all of our questions and when asked he told me what his personal favorites were. We interacted with two other salespeople who were equally as friendly and helpful.
As we made our way past all of the coffee beans we went to the counter to order a cup of coffee. Kim and I both ordered a dark roast called Baba Budan. The young man at the counter asked if we would mind waiting because he had to make a fresh pot. We gladly assured him that we would not mind waiting for a fresh pot of coffee.
I bought a cookie and ate it as we waited for the coffee. There was a lot of activity and you probably couldn’t do much reading or studying there. But it is a good place to have a cup of coffee and conversation. Doesn’t coffee seem to taste better when you have it and talk with someone? There is food you can purchase too and it really does look like a good place to go to eat and drink coffee.
We ordered the coffee to go and when it was ready that is what we did. The only negative is that the coffee was so hot you could not hold the cup long even with the sleeve. We may have even burned our tongues a little because of how hot it was. But it did have a good bold taste that lingered after you swallowed. We would definitely get it again. The staff is friendly and helpful and the coffee is good. We would definitely return.
We’ll be looking for other coffee shops to visit and review on our travels. Until next time enjoy the coffee and the conversation.
Much GRACE and peace to you,
Bill and Kim
