Exploring the Art of Coffee in Delaware County

@ohiocoffeeblog on her Delaware County Coffee Trail experience

Espresso 22: My first stop on the @visitdelohio Coffee Trail was @espresso22powell located on Liberty St. in Downtown @cityofpowelloh.
Espresso 22 offers a wide variety of coffee/espresso based drink options, as well as tea options too!
They have breakfast options and serve Der Dutchman donuts. They use @onelinecoffee and it is SO good. Espresso 22 has a drive-thru!

Fresh Start Cafe and Bakery: Y’all wanna know what’s up! @freshstartcafeandbakery lavender short bread cookie! HOLY CANOLI. It was phenomenal and I haven’t stopped thinking about it. Fresh Start was stop 2 for me on the Delaware County Coffee Trail! I went during Main Street Delaware First Friday and was like one giant street party! I got a cup of their medium roast and it was sooooo good.

Mr. Bean Coffee: My stop 4 on the @visitdelohio Coffee Trail! located right off of Liberty Street in @cityofpowelloh, is a welcoming and vibrant coffee and gelato shop!
With a variety of coffee options to choose from, a welcoming staff, and a room filled with plants and sunshine, you’ll be sure to feel right at home!

Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea: I am so close to checking off all the stops on the @visitdelohio Coffee Trail! I have genuinely loved every place I’ve tried so far! Today I’m featuring @sweetwaterscoffeetea, I got their medium roast and a Raspberry bar. It all was delicious. The atmosphere is calming and the perfect environment to read or study. Although I can’t speak about their teas (I don’t drink tea) I most certainly can speak about their coffee and pastries! They have a variety of options, but are best known for their Dreamy Cold brew! They also have seasonal specials!

Boston Stoker: Have y’all checked out the newest @bostonstokercolumbus in @dublinohio?! I went today to check it off my @visitdelohio Coffee Trail and I was truly impressed! The same good coffee, a beautiful interior, a DRIVE-THRU, anddddd a miniature coffee bar for kids to play with! My babe did NOT want to leave.

Not to mention, it was really cool to see their wall of cigars! A tribute to where they started! Boston Stoker did not begin as a coffee shop, instead a tobacco and pipe store! The owner began offering complementary coffee to his customers and that is how Boston Stoker made its way into the coffee scene.

Ethos + Co. Cafe: Dudeeeeeee. Grand Opening for was incredible.

The building is STUNNING. It truly is the perfect space to build community over a cup of delicious @florincoffee and amazing pastries by @freedomalacart. I could’ve stayed in the space all day. If you have the time go check them out! You won’t regret it!

The Coffee Vault: @thecoffeevault in @galena.ohio is such an incredible spot. Located in what used to be an old bank, The Coffee Vault offers a cozy space. They serve @onelinecoffee and have a variety of incredible drinks, as well as pastries and food options! Don’t sleep on the White Chocolate Raspberry Scones with a cup of Oneline coffee. You can’t go wrong!

Biggby Coffee: @biggbycoffee is not only a new addition to the @visitdelohio Coffee Trail but is also a new addition to @lewis_center_ohio!

Biggby has a wide selection of coffee drinks, tea, as well as kids menu and food items!

The drive thru made it so easy to access! All the mamas and daddy’s with kids in the car knowww the struggle! Can I get a yeehaw, woot woot, amen?!

Bonjour Cafe: Did you guys know! Many new coffee spots have been added to the @visitdelohio Coffee Trail⁉️ Today I got to try a new (to me and the trail) shop in the @polarisfashionplace mall!

@bonjourcafe_cbus is the perfect addition to the Polaris mall (cough cough SO much better than Starbucks.) It’s a Paris inspired coffee shop that also offers crepes!

If you’ve been following me for a bit you know my go to order is black coffee, but today I couldn’t pass up the Tchagi Caramel Cafe Iced Latte! It’s an espresso based drink with homemade caramel and chocolate ganache! I got it half sweet and it was PERFECT. I love it when cafes offer syrups and sauces and drinks that are unique to them!

Ciao Cafe: It was my first time ever at @authentic_italian_gelato_cafe this morning and I had a great experience!
There was so much to experience and taste. I got a Birthday Cake gelato, a caramel cream filled donut, and their house blend.

They offer a ton of options in regards to their coffee, and even have a section on their menu titled “Italian Way.”
On drip they had a dark roast and a Highlander Grogg. I’m not especially keen on flavored coffee, so I got their dark roast. It was robust and full of flavor.

Collective: A new coffee shop on the grid…@a_collective_experience located in Lewis Center has everything you could want for a self care day! Nails, skin, hair, coffee and cocktails!

My bestie and I stopped in today and hung out in the lounge, while there were others getting their hair and nails done. They serve @rostcoffee and it is bomb! I got a drip coffee and bestie got their Brown Butter Latte. The space is amazing and The Collective experience is onto something GREAT. Why hasn’t this been done before. BRILLIANT!

Dell’s Ice Cream & Coffee: Got to try a new (to me) coffee/ice cream shop today while also checking off another @visitdelohio coffee shop off of my list! @dells_ice_cream was SO GOOD.
I had to try both coffee and the ice cream (duh!)
I got the Swiftie special, a blueberry white mocha iced latte called Midnight Rain. They use @crimsoncupcoffee which you can always count on to be quality. My kids and I got the 4 scoop sampler and it was DELICIOUS. The scoops were huge and the cost was only a dollar or so more than just getting one scoop!
Highly recommend venturing over to @dells_ice_cream for your coffee and ice cream needs! It’s only 5 minutes from the @columbuszoo so make a day of it!

Village Coffee of Sunbury: Got to check out the BRAND NEW @villagecoffeeofsunbury yesterday! Honestly, the inside of the building is breathtaking! It’s the perfect space to relax and recharge with a cup of coffee!

FUN FACT! This has recently been added to the @visitdelohio Coffee Trail so head over to Sunbury Ohio and check this off of your coffee trail map! You won’t regret it!

The Roosevelt at Olentangy River Brewing Co: Have you ever seen anyone or any thing more happy than me with a cup of coffee? I didn’t think so.
Today I got one of the best drip coffees I have ever had. @therooseveltcoffeehouse has a Brazilian naturally processed bean from the farm of Tropical Bahia. Featuring flavor notes of White Grape, Butterscotch, and Floral.
It was a wonderfully delicious coffee party in my mouth. I would drink it again and again.
With it I had a chocolate Raspberry scone! Amazing.

Bushel and a Bean Coffee Truck: What an amazing day it was celebrating National Coffee Day by trying out a new (to me!) spot! @bushel_and_a_bean was such a vibe!!! Delicious coffee (@hemispherecoffeeroasters ) and pastries (Flutterby Bakery). My order: An Americano and a Salted Caramel Sourdough Cookie, and a Chocolate Chip Pumpkin scone! My mom also got a dirty toasted chai and said it was the best she had ever had!

Coffeeology: Checked @coffeeologydelaware off of my @visitdelohio Coffee Trail! As always, it was perfection. The space is elegant and sophisticated, while also extremely inviting!
I got an espresso cream puff, zucchini bread, and a black coffee. My coffee was fresh and superb. They also have a bomb cold foam cold brew you should try next time you’re in!

Finishing out my @visitdelohio Coffee Trail with a double whammy…
Choffey’s Coffee & Confections: Starting first with @choffeys in Downtown Delaware, they have chocolates of every kind! Although I love chocolate, donuts and coffee are my faves! And Choffeys has both! They use @hemispherecoffeeroasters coffee for their coffee based drinks!

Columbus Coffee Company Truck: Next is
A specialty coffee truck that ventures around Ohio for events! They use @staufs_coffee for all their coffee based drinks.

You won’t regret checking both of these awesome places out!
