Ross Street Roasting Co. was founded in 2015 by small-town Iowa native, Brian Gumm. Brian spent a year and a half hobby roasting in his garage on Ross Street in Toledo, Iowa. The business scaled up from local word-of-mouth customers to begin serving cafés and retail stores in the Central Iowa area.
RSR have won awards in national roasting competitions, been featured in national coffee subscription services, and they have received great feedback from customers, coffee reviewers, and professional tasters. How do they do it? "By staying true to our mission that we love doing every day, turning coffee drinkers into coffee lovers."
