Crimson Anchor Coffee Roasters featured on the Des Moines Register

Posted by on

Selling coffee at farmers markets for over a year, Crimson Anchor Coffee Roasters opened up shop recently in Indianola, Iowa. Owners Chad and Erica Johnson have expanded into a storefront after testing the market for their coffee extensively. Rather than serve coffee by the cup, the location sells fresh roasted specialty coffee. Though if customers would like Crimson Anchor by the cup, it is served at Mishmash Cafe nearby. Crimson Anchor focuses on light to medium roasts, which are produced on their new 2 kilogram North machine from Mill City. The article is written by Paige Godden, a writer for the Des Moines Register.
