Have you seen those impossibly incredible videos of Jerry Seinfeld getting in cars with comedians to go get coffee? Well, you should. You should probably do it right now. Seriously. Open a new web browser, go to THIS WEBSITE and start watching.
I told you they were good. If you just ignored me and didn’t watch any of the videos I’ll give you the shortened version.
Jerry Seinfeld + some other uproarious- comedian + fancy car ride + enter coffee shop + get caffeinated + talk + laugh = awesome.
Comedians like coffee. Coffee likes comedians. It’s Comedians squared. It’s coffee squared. Coffee-medians? Comedie-offee? I don’t know what it is. Here’s what John Roos thinks.
“The cool thing about those videos is it shows how awesome and sexy coffee really is. The selection, the roasting, the grinding and making espresso.” – John Roos
Straight from the mouth of the man himself. Speaking of sexy…
What’s cookin’ good lookin?
Full-time barista, part-time circus-performer Katie Wright says, “they should start doing this on tandem bicycles. It’s good for mama earth and would be HILARIOUS to see comedians trying to drink coffee while riding a bike.”
Reduce your carbon footprint. Drink coffee. Be happy.
Stay classy, Ann Arbor.
We’re here! We’re crafting mean long pulls. We’re slinging espresso shots. We’re serving up our most concentrated, most caffeinated, most coveted cold brew. And we’re waiting for YOU to come see us. Get at me, bro.
See us at either the Farmer’s Market OR our cafe on Rosewood before the first football game of the season!
This Saturday Michigan Stadium will host two world cup soccer teams and 115,000 people are going to show up in Ann Arbor to watch the match-off.
The event is sold out. There seems to be a frenzy in being a part of record-breaking crowds – something we call, “largest audience syndrome”. This is truly living large – it’s watching large, being a part of something large.
Aren’t we lucky that Ann Arbor is the perfect place for this? A world-renowned football stadium that can seat 100,000+ people, a kickass downtown that always entertains, staffed by workers able to attend to crowds of people, and of course, RoosRoast – the coffee shop closest to the stadium, with parking, and the hardest to find location.
What does this mean for the hard working coffee people at RoosRoast? It means 115,000 extra people wandering through Ann Arbor, either feeling amazing in anticipation of watching the game or reveling in having been part of the largest audience ever to watch a soccer match.
Either way we hope to attract .0004% of these people and have an extra 50 people walk through the door on Saturday which will make our day INCREDIBLY AWESOME.
Come on down to RoosRoast for the Deep Local vibe, European-style coffee, refreshing nettle tea, eclectic customers, cool people, and sometimes dogs. We may be playing soccer on the lawn.
The Ann Arbor Art Fair is the number one stop on the American pan handlers circuit, but don’t let that tighten your purse strings.
Because Ann Arbor is Y2K ready. Our pot holes are patched, our streets are blocked, our construction is contained and we are about to host over 1000 artists who make it their jobs to share a vision which is not the brainchild of Walmart or Madison Avenue. All the unloading and set up begins the afternoon of July 15th. The actual Art Fair starts on Wednesday and goes thru Saturday.
We just want to let you know that if you’re in Ann Arbor you’re half way to RoosRoast. Maybe you’ve seen us at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market, or on Youtube, or had Lobster Butter Love gifted to you by a close friend or maybe you’re a regular who makes RoosRoast part of your daily ritual? No matter, come on down to Rosewood for your coffee refuge and:
screen-printed bags filled with amazing coffee right out of the roaster,
hand-crafted coffee drinks,
gifts (locally-made fetish mugs and a whole new section of t-shirts),
“Vannie,” Ann Arbor’s infamous 1957 Metro Van,
local farm fresh eggs,
The Ice Bomb,
soft toilet paper (this week only),
Sale Prices on much of our coffee gear.
Sure, the Art Fair is amazing but even amazing requires a break, so break on down to Rosewood and re-caffeinate and get some deep local Ann Arbor experience.
RoosRoast: making good better.
It’s summertime in Ann Arbor, ya’ll – and what does that mean? It’s camps on campuses. It’s sidewalk sales and slippery streets. It’s people in matching T-Shirts and plastic lanyards moving in schedule . (It’s lanyard support week! We love it! We’re with you.) It’s BAND CAMP. Whatever happens at Band Camp, stays at band camp. Like Vegas, but it’s rated PG-13. It’s music fests, meeting places, and monkey bars! It’s booze, babes, and all-beef hotdogs. (Unless you’re vegetarian. In which case it’s…vegetables.) It’s sweaty-sexy-sugary-sweet.
If you’re new to town, if you’re visiting, if you’re a home-grown Ann Arborite: stop by RoosRoast café to see our five-star Yelp Review in action. Sip on the best cold brew in town, or grab an iced ginger lemon tea which is made fresh in house. Don’t miss out on a true, deeply local Ann Arbor experience.

When you think about jamming out to your favorite bands at Waterhill 2014, drinking coffee from RoosRoast might and (should) immediately follow that thought. It’s no wonder- it’s a super deep.local time!
News on the twittersphere is that banjos are banned. We will strum our ukuleles in contemplation of this banishment. All in favor? Waterhill’s website suggests this rumor was nothing more than an April Fools joke. I think I’ll “porch” this subject for now.
This orchestrated music festival happens every year in Ann Arbor, momentarily turning our town into a kind of New Orleans. The pure vibes flow off of porches all over the Waterhill neighborhood. The epic jam session begins May 4, 2014 from 2-6 p.m.
See you there! Roos Crew out.
