It all started at the Mothership: Cafe Brioso
Cafe Brioso is our original store "the mothership" a full service coffee bar and scratch kitchen offering quick service lunch to the great people of Columbus. A few years after opening Jeff renamed the coffee brand to Brioso Coffee with the intent of focusing on cupping, brewing methods and expanding roasting production while maintaining our vibrant, urban cafe. Flash forward to January 2016, we opened Brioso Roastery and Coffee Bar. Located in the Discovery District, this space boasts an open and modern floor plan, encouraging guest interaction and education. This space is also our current roasting headquarters where Jeff and the production team can roast up to one hundred thousand pounds each year. Additionally, we feature a full service coffee bar and select baked goods. The coffee lab and cupping station is designed for educating staff as well as retail and wholesale customers.
In addition to our roasted coffees, we offer a number of services including industry trends, menu guidance, barista basics and brewing techniques to fit a number of different coffee services, grinding and portion packing, local delivery, mail order shipment, and empowerment to best suit your coffee program needs.
