Charlie and Anthony
Pour Coffee Co. was founded by two friends, Charlie Eisenstat, the owner of Pour Cleveland, and Anthony Lazzaro, an employee rights lawyer in Cleveland.
Charlie founded Pour Cleveland, a multi-roaster pour over and espresso bar in downtown Cleveland, in 2013. Since then, he has obsessed over the quality and consistency of coffee and has meticulously sourced coffees from the best roasters all over the world.
Anthony contacted Charlie in 2014 for help with purchasing a La Marzocco espresso machine. Shortly thereafter, Anthony was hooked on the Nordic-style, third-wave coffees Charlie was serving at Pour Cleveland.
In 2017, Charlie and Anthony decided to start a small-batch roastery focusing on Nordic-style, third-wave coffees. They focus on creating a few extremely high-quality coffees for sale to wholesale customers, as well as to retail customers online.
We start our roasting process by seeking the best beans at their peak maturity. The average price we pay for green (unroasted) coffee beans is over 5 times the average price paid for commodity coffee globally in 2019, and over 3 times the price paid for specialty coffee globally.
To us and our customers, the difference is worth it. By using high-quality beans, we are able to set specific roast profiles that highlight the clarity of flavors within each coffee. Our roasting style results in pronounced fruit tones and richness with a juicy finish.
Our coffee is enjoyed on any brew method, including filter, pour over, french press and espresso. We hope you enjoy our product as much as we do.
