It’s not about the coffee; it’s about the community. Rōst Coffee was founded on the belief that people matter and world-class coffee may be the best way of bringing them together. They’re growing a dedicated community through their new shop in Chillicothe, one cup at a time.
Rōst Coffee is the brainchild of Trent Fannin, who started his Columbus-based roastery in 2012, which focused primarily on wholesale coffee sales. As an all-around entrepreneur and DIY expert, Trent decided to dive into the storefront game in 2016, eventually opening-up the businesses’ stunning space in The Fort Collective.
Every cup of coffee has a story, and so does the person who’s holding it. These stories and the people behind them drive Rōst Coffee on a daily basis.
“Our coffee beans are grown around the world, by real farmers and their families,” Trent said.
“They pour their heart and culture into what they do. I believe people feel that when they’re enjoying a great cup of coffee, and it inherently creates a conversation. With Rōst Coffee, we want to provide a premium product to our community, and also build real connections in the process”
Located in the heart of The Fort Collective, Rōst offers a full coffee menu, ranging from simple drip coffee to espresso drinks, lattes, and more. Beyond coffee, they also offer smoothing, cold-press juices, as well as a full breakfast, lunch, and sandwich menu. The shop is now open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and is closed Sundays.
