Ramble Coffee – Columbus, OH

Whether you’re gearing up for an outdoor adventure, to get away from it all, or have a coffee break at your desk, all you need is hot water for the perfect cup of Ramble Coffee. These single-serve coffee packs are filled with precision ground, pre-dosed, ready to brew specialty coffee. Just pour over, dunk, steep, and enjoy with no mess – just + water. Every pack is nitro sealed in fully compostable packaging made using renewable materials.

While we have always been intrigued by the complexity and variety that coffee has to offer, lately traversing the world of coffee has become something of an obsession for us.  In 2015, when we were still hand-roasting green coffee in our kitchen, we also designed and built a teardrop camper. We set out to see the country with our two spirited children and found ourselves as taken with the beautiful vistas as we were with new friends we met along the way.  We knew we wanted to bring that sense of adventure and community back to our hometown, and launched Ramble Coffee in October of 2016. Two years later, we moved our roastery inside Global Gallery coffee shop in Clintonville where we currently roast.

Whether we are perfecting a roast, learning about a farm or co-op, or experimenting with brewing methods, a spirit of exploration leads the way.
