Bella's Beans is the creation of two friends, Ryan McGuire and Aaron Olbur. Ryan met Aaron during a gathering Ryan created and hosts: The Sunrise Coffee Club – where locals greet the sun with freshly brewed, pour-over coffee that Ryan personally roasts and brews. They quickly "brewed" their friendship over their shared love of great coffee and decided to start a business together in order to save up money for their daughters' education. In fact, this company is named after Ryan's daughter Bella.
Bella's Beans focuses on quality, freshness, convenience, and community! All too often, we get stuck drinking the same old (usually stale) coffee and only get to experience some of the varieties, and roast profiles coffee has to offer. Ryan and Aaron are changing the way you drink coffee by providing coffee beans from around the world and roasting a unique bean each week. This super fresh coffee gets delivered to your door only a couple of days after being roasted. The smell of coffee roasted this fresh is intoxicating. You're going to be hooked after tasting a freshly brewed cup of coffee made from Bella's Beans, and that's not just because caffeine is addictive :)
As for the community, using Bella's Beans for good, spreading positive vibes, and supporting the community are near and dear to the business's goals. How do we do that, you ask? We have lots of Caring Coffee Initiatives, we plant a tree for every batch of coffee we deliver (over 6,000 so far in 2022), we donate 200% of our profit from shirt sales to support Ohio teachers, and are usually the first to donate coffee/time/money to charities, kids trying to accomplish amazing things (e.g., We Did Start the Fire Robotics Club, Granville Parents Co-op Preschool, etc.), and pretty much anyone in our community that needs a helping hand.
More about Ryan:
Originally from Ithaca, NY, Ryan and his family moved to Ohio over three years ago after a short stint of living in Grinnell, Iowa. Ryan is a community artist and has public art installed around the country. When not roasting coffee, he can be found picking up trash with his daughter, driving around in his literal monster truck or dinosaur car, making art, or helping a community member in need. Ryan is always smiling and is the mastermind behind the new "Smile Phone" installed in downtown Granville. Check out the interview ABC6 did about the phone (Interview Link) and enjoy some of Ryan's whimsical art at www.mcguiremade.com.
More about Aaron:
Aaron was born and raised in Chicago, but he didn't become the super family man we know and love today until meeting the woman of his dreams and creating a family while living in California. He is the father of two girls, and when he is not roasting coffee, he is either spending time with them or running. Yes, running :) Aaron's entire life revolves around running. He is the creator of the Granville Running Club, helps motivate and inspire others to run and achieve their goals, and somehow sneaks in a 5k every day.
