Kevin Ridge discovered his passion for coffee late in life, when he began developing the perfect blend. In 2015, he founded Black Iron Coffee Roasters, a business that quickly became popular at local farmer's markets.
That success culminated in the opening of their first physical store in Howell only three months ago — and it has already won the No. 1 spot in the Vote 4 the Best category “Best Coffee Shop.”
Known for their specialty blends and in-house roasted coffee beans, Black Iron Coffee Roasters provided some of their famous pour over coffee, a beverage made by pouring water directly over the grounded coffee and letting it drip into the cup - great for camping or taking it on-the-go.
They also offer espresso drinks, brewed and iced coffee, teas and hot chocolate. And all of their pastries are made in-house.
