We are a small batch specialty coffee roaster, located in the heart of Ohio. We provide freshly roasted whole bean specialty craft coffee and loose leaf tea that are a uniquely enjoyable experience. We sell online and in person at farmers markets and other pop-up events.
Who We Are
I am a mother of one amazing toddler,and wife to a very talented husband. We started our journey long ago with a desire to run our own shop one day. We had a tiny little business with handmade tags and bags, no coffee yet, that we brought to local farmers markets an events around Columbus. Learning the skills needed to start a business was grueling and I am so thankful we had each other, we really leaned on our own strengths to support each others weaknesses. We realized that we wanted more from our business and went in a new direction with the same goal in mind. I went to roasting school, we both took business classes, and we launch a new business. We have grown exponentially because of our community, it took years to research and development our different coffees and tea, and our business. We are proud to offer you all our hard work, we know the journey is long, but at least its caffeinated.
How We Got Our Name
With a name like Fruits & Roots, you might be expecting smoothies or fresh farmed produce. When we first envisioned our company we wanted to run it a certain way. First, be fruitful, then multiply, lest you multiply dysfunction. To us that mean’s taking a step back before implementing one hundred awesome ideas and going after one. There is no shortage of amazing ideas, its whether any of them adds value to the customer or not. If your idea isn’t received and used, what good is creating something no one wants? We want our efforts, interactions, and business to bare good fruit, abundantly.
To grow fruit you need strong roots, a nutrient dense, well love soil will weather any storm and drought. This is our community. Because we’re an online company community might look a bit different than a traditional shop. We grow our community by connecting our love for coffee and tea, with our passion for seeing others grow, and showing up for our community. Each interaction we have, in person or online is a chance to strengthen our roots, that’s how we treat each person we meet.
