Troubadour

Coffee Roasters

We are passionate about our coffee. We source our beans through three importers direct from the farms and cooperatives, we roast them on-site, and we make each beverage to order. We do not offer flavors, syrups, smoothies, frappes, meal-type foods or most typical coffee shop drinks, but for good reason. We are very focused on the quality aspect of our coffees and want you to experience coffee for the passion, craft and art of it.  Coffee is the seed of a fruit and if its grown, processed, roasted and brewed properly,  the results will be amazing;  not bitter or burnt. Why cover up the good?  If your black coffee tastes bitter or burnt, you're drinking the wrong coffee, usually poor quality.  Pure and simple and without attitudes or snobbery we challenge you to Rethink Your Coffee.

Now Let's Talk About You

We've already made our mistakes as baristas, roasters, retailers, bakers and coffee shop makers. With a strong desire for a positive coffee experience among people and baristas around the nation, we'd like to share with you our knowledge of opening, equipping, and running a business of making great coffee.  We are the only barista training program in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio!
