Boston Stoker Espresso Settles in to its Residence in Grandview

2 min read

Based mostly out of Dayton and first opened in 1973, Boston Stoker is a type of long-running espresso roasters that’s been serving high quality espresso earlier than it was cool. The espresso roaster (and occasional cigar purveyor) remains to be based mostly in Dayton and has grown to a number of places round western Ohio.

They first entered the Columbus market in 2013 with a store on Neil Avenue on Ohio State’s campus earlier than shifting that down the road to the Thurber Village buying middle. With that space being redeveloped, they closed that retailer and in 2022 moved into the previous Luck Bros store in Grandview.

I’ve all the time liked this area and I’m glad there’s a espresso store in it as soon as once more. It’s lengthy and slim, with a espresso bar to 1 facet, some retail cabinets, then a group of tables, couches, and chairs all through.

Just like different long-running retailers like Crimson Cup, Boston Stoker walks the road between professional third wave espresso (nice espresso, pour overs, French press, Chemex) and extra “mainstream” espresso retailers with flavored lattes, frozen drinks, tea, sandwiches, and snacks.

My choice is all the time to hit the espresso bar, and I’m pleased to say I’ve been happy with the espresso I’ve gotten there.

Boston Stoker nonetheless captures that really feel of 90s coffeehouses, with mis-matched furnishings, couches, rugs.

They’ve a big desk towards the again, plus just a few two-tops and different plush chairs, however I do love the entrance corners close to the home windows.

When you’re there you should buy beans (embrace some Luck Bros roasts!), brewing gear, mugs. There’s even a small humidor with cigars.

Boston Stoker has saved its footing in Columbus, and even has a second location coming to Shawnee Hills someday this yr.
