The North Market Coffee Roast returns for a third year this weekend, but the format is changing to mix things up a bit. The event is shifting from Saturday to Sunday and will feature special brunch offerings from select North Market vendors in addition to the coffee samplings from over a dozen Ohio roasters. The event also includes demonstrations, discussions, and a home roasting competition where a winner will be crowned on site.

We’ve featured nearly every local coffee roaster we can find here on CU, but have narrowed it down to just 10 from Sunday’s lineup that we highly recommend you try out. Of course, you’re always welcome to sample more than these 10, but don’t blame us for the caffeine-induced jittering and shaking that will ensue.

10 Coffees Worth Checking Out at the North Market Coffee Roast Brunch:

Backroom Coffee Roasters – Bike-powered Backroom started operations in 2010 and has created a lot of buzz. Their coffees can be found in many retail outlets, as long as you can get it before it flies off the shelf – CLICK HERE to read more.

Café Brioso – Gay Street hangout Brioso could easily be considered the crossroads of Columbus. It’s where politics, hipsters, students, office workers and others all converge for great coffee – CLICK HERE to read more.

Crimson Cup Coffee – The biggest name in town in Crimson Cup, having grown from local roots to serving coffee shops in 28 states in the past two decades – CLICK HERE to read more.

Upper Cup Coffee – The neighborhood-centric Upper Cup roasts their beans on Parsons Avenue in Olde Towne East, providing residents with great coffee, and with a great gathering place – CLICK HERE to read more.

The Actual Brewing Company – Maybe you know their beers, or maybe you know their coffees. Hopefully you know both, as they’re equally delicious – CLICK HERE to read more.

Stauf’s Coffee Roasters – Stauf’s is the local fan favorite, being voted best coffee in 2012 and 2013 in the annual CU reader’s survey. Their coffee powers not only Stauf’s in Grandview, but also all of the Cup O Joe and MoJoe Lounge locations around town – CLICK HERE to read more.

Thunderkiss Coffee – Another relatively new roaster in Columbus, Thunderkiss has been growing their small roasting operation rapidly since launching in 2010 – CLICK HERE to read more.

Boston Stoker – Dayton-based Boston Stoker has been around for ages, but only officially came to Columbus last year when they opened a shop near OSU – CLICK HERE to read more.

One Line Coffee – Hip Short North coffee bar One Line has been open for less than two years, but has quickly won the hearts (and palates) of many local coffee drinkers – CLICK HERE to read more.
