Crimson Cup (Upper Arlington): Columbus Coffee Experience

On a beautiful, sunny day Mo and I headed off to Upper Arlington, an affluent suburb of Columbus, Ohio, to try a new coffee shop on our Columbus Coffee Experience Trail. We grabbed a delicious lunch at Brassica on Lane Avenue and then drove a few blocks to Crimson Cup.

[A note about Brassica–I ordered the falafel bowl with veggies, hummus, and red pepper sauce. My tastebuds were in heaven with the complex tastes of this Mediterranean bowl. It was pretty pricy for a casual fast dining experience so I rate this place 8/10]

With coffees in hand, Mo and I walked around a park in downtown UA. There were several others out walking dogs and even a few people on the Lacrosse field. We enjoyed the outdoors as Ohio has been under a blanket of snow insulated by below freezing temps for about a week. Our coffees were still warm once we made it around the park so we decided to continue our venture and we walked along Tremont Avenue talking about our goals for 2021 and life in general.

The Ratings:

Me: large drip coffee with a splash of almond milk- 7/10. In my opinion, Crimson Cup is far superior to Starbucks, but it is not the most unique when it comes to taste. It was a very smooth cup of coffee, but I don’t think I can rank it above some of the local roasts I’ve had recently.

Mo: Crimson Mocha Latte, no whip-8/10. It had strong, rich flavor, but was definitely more of a “desserty” drink.
