Located in Indianapolis, Indiana, Brickhouse Coffee Co. was founded by the Stayton family upon their return from Southern Spain with a vision to start a business that would take the place of having to fund raise as a missionary family. Though the plan is to one day return to Spain with their coffee business, the Stayton's have discovered that you don't have to travel far to be missional.
Jared Stayton learned the art of coffee roasting on a 1912 Royal No. 5 roaster on the property of Horizon Christian Fellowship, in an old brick house that was built in the late 1800's. Brickhouse Coffee Roasters was born January of 2013 with the help of the church with the goal to prove a business as mission model that would sustain the Stayton family as missionaries. With the blessing of the church, the Stayton's took 100% ownership of the small roasting business in 2015 and by faith, looked for the next roasting space in order to expand the operation which landed them in Fortville, Indiana.
After 1 year in the small town of Fortville, the Stayton's brought on a partner and were invited to open what would be their first retail coffee house in the old Jonathan Byrd's building in Greenwood, Indiana. This iconic building that was built in the late 80's by the Byrd family seemed the perfect location for us to continue to build the Brickhouse community. With over 5,000 square feet, the Stayton's had plans to bring in other local small businesses to share such a large space, however, after almost 3 years, the large space along with the rise of a new pandemic that was forcing businesses to shut down, the Stayton's decided to pivot their business model to one that would allow independently owned and operated retail Brickhouse locations so that they could turn their focus back to roasting coffee and growing the brand.
Brickhouse Coffee now has 2 licensed retail locations. Root2Rise Coffee Bar & Juicery in Greenwood, In, and Brickhouse Coffee at Geist Shoppes in Lawrence, In.
Jared continues to roast as well as consult others wanting to open coffee shops and train baristas within the Brickhouse retail family. He has also turned his focus to bringing on others in joining the mission to take the Brickhouse brand to the next level.
Family is what you make it, and from our family of farmers, we craft a coffee in such a way that tells their story with each and every sip from your cup. No artificial flavors, just naturally grown, directly traded coffee, roasted to perfection as nature intended. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do and look forward to you joining our community of artisan coffee lovers.
