Boston Stoker Set to Open Victorian Village Shop March 13

Boston Stoker Coffee Company will open its newest location at 771 Neil Avenue on March 13, 2015.  The company will move the current coffee shop located on Ohio State University’s campus as the building is slated for demolition.  The new coffee shop will be the 7th location for the specialty coffee roaster.

Boston Stoker was founded by Don and Sally Dean who opened their first tobacco shop in Englewood, Ohio in 1973.  The Deans began to serve gourmet coffee without charge to customers as they enjoyed their pipe or cigar.  The coffee was so popular that Boston Stoker soon began selling beans by the pound.  In 1983, Boston Stoker began roasting coffee, eleven pounds at a time.  Today the company is led by Henry Dean, son of the founders.  Henry and team travel the globe looking for finest coffees and establishing direct trade relationships with growers that produce quality coffee, exemplify social responsibility, use sustainable growing practices and are environmentally consciousness.  “Our mission is to serve the finest coffee in the world, to do that we must consider the people who grow and cultivate it”, says Henry Dean, President of Boston Stoker Coffee Company


Boston Stoker Coffee Company roasts these fine direct trade and single origin coffees and was recently named “Best Coffee Roaster” by Ohio Magazine.  The drink menu is simple and traditional. Espresso drinks, Rishi brand loose leaf teas and manually brewed “pour-over” coffees are highlighted.  There will also be cold brew coffee offering as well.  “We implement one of several manual brew methods to brew each and every cup of coffee fresh to order,” explained Erik Fenstermacher, Store Manager. “The brewing methods we offer are the Hario v60 pour-over method, French Press, Chemex, and Yama siphon.”  In addition to coffee and tea, a daily selection of freshly made, locally sourced pastries, toast by Dan the Baker as well as will be offered.

Today over 150, 000 pounds of coffee is roasted annually and shipped world-wide.  The company has an expanding wholesale business that provides coffee to retailers and other businesses.  In addition to coffee, Boston Stoker offers a complete line of brewing equipment for home or commercial use.   “We are proud to roast and sell the finest coffees in the world as well as the best equipment with which to brew it.”, says J. Stanton, Director of Sales & Marketing. 

The new shop will open on March 13, 2015.  Regular business hours will be Monday-Thursday 7:00 am – 9:00 pm, Friday 7:00 am – 10:00 pm, Saturday 8:00 am – 10:00 pm and Sunday 8:00-8:00 pm.
