Ever since the dawn of the pretentious barista, it’s no surprise that Columbus has once again opted for no-nonsense coffee. Sure, latte art and oversized scarfs are fun and all, but mornings are rough. Stauf’s contains all of what makes an award-winning coffee shop: limited run coffee beans, a welcoming atmosphere, and quality grinds that won’t break your bank. Best of all? You don’t have to order your size in Italian.
