Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have questions? The answer is probably 42. If not, here is some other ideas.

Don’t see what you need? Ask us:



Do you have a storefront?

We don’t yet! We are working on a trailer but right now you can find us at farmer’s markets and various pop ups around the NEO area.

…so where do you roast?

We converted an unfinished section of our basement to our roastery.

How do you roast your beans?

We use a fluid bed roaster from Coffee Crafters to roast our coffee. While it’s an argument that will last to the end of time, we like to think that fluid bed roasted coffee lends to a cleaner flavor than drum roasting. We roast every batch carefully by hand.

Do you ship drinks?

We don’t. We are working on bottled drinks but if you want a fresh drink, come find us in person!

How did you come up with the name Obvious Coffee?

This answer has two parts. First, Joe loves to use the word “obvious” in conversation. One of his close friends joked to him one day that he should call this burgeoning company “Obvious Coffee”. Joe immediately thought this was a great idea and the rest was history. (For the record, his friend was kidding).

Also, we wanted to make better coffee more accessible to everyone. We feel our coffee is the obvious choice to do that (here we go again).

Where can I get a sticker?
