frequently Asked questions, and our answers!
We certainly are! Both of our owners grew up here and attended school (Bloomington High School North and Indiana University) in Bloomington, Indiana. Having been life-long friends, Alex Rubin and Chaz Sinn decided to start up this company as they noticed growing interest and demand in the mobile food industry. However, we have since evolved into a cold brew coffee bottling company (in 2017) specializing in production and wholesale distribution of our local products. One of the co-owners of our local coffee roaster, Quarrymen Coffee Roasting Company, is a native to Bloomington as well. Wes Burton is from here and met his wife Debi Burton (co-owner) at Indiana University, Why should you choose STIR Coffee? Because by choosing us, you are supporting not just one, but TWO local businesses to Bloomington, Indiana!
Is STIR Coffee a local company to Bloomington, Indiana? Where are your owners from?
Does STIR Coffee have a shop or store front?
The short answer is no, we do not have a coffee shop or store front location. We began as a mobile coffee van in 2015, but have since become a cold brew coffee bottling company. Our focus is production and wholesale distribution of our products to share with our wonderful consumers!
In short, Uel Zing Coffee and STIR Cold Brew Coffee are simply two very different coffee beverages due to the coffee roasting process itself. Uel Zing Coffee is roasted in the "light" range, while STIR Cold Brew Coffee is roasted in the "medium" range. This highlights very different aromas and flavors in each local bottled cold brew. STIR Cold Brew Coffee also offers flavored varieties and are the first and only local cold brew to do so!
I've had Uel Zing cold brew coffee before. How is STIR Cold Brew Coffee different?
What differentiates STIR Cold Brew Coffee from big national brands such as Califia Farms, Chameleon Cold Brew, or High Brew Coffee?
What really sets STIR Cold Brew Coffee apart from big national competition is that we offer one of the freshest ready-to-drink cold brew coffees on the market. Our local coffee roaster, Quarrymen Coffee Roasting Company, delivers fresh roasted coffee every Tuesday afternoon to our commissary that we put directly into our brewers first thing each Wednesday morning; then every Thursday we bottle our products and distribute to stores. Our products never sit for days or even weeks in a stock room walk-in cooler. We only stock what's necessary on the shelves to guarantee ultra-fresh products and re-stock multiple times per week if necessary.
What kind of coffee does STIR Coffee serve? Does STIR use a local coffee roaster?
STIR Coffee is proud to be a local company to Bloomington, Indiana and to serve locally roasted coffee from Quarrymen Coffee Roasting Company. Quarrymen Coffee Roasting Company was established in 2008 and roasts some of Bloomington's finest artisan coffee. Quarrymen has created both the STIR House Blend (hot coffee) and STIR Cold Brew Blend (cold brew coffee) just for our company. Our coffee is "locally roasted and always fresh"!
