Columbia Street Roastery
The Covered Bridge Festival, held in Parke County, Indiana draws people from all over the country. While at the festival, I met a gentleman from Champaign, Illinois, who owned a coffee roastery. He wanted an illustration of the Columbia Street Roastery, as it would have looked years ago. He was interested in putting the image on his coffee bags and literature. About a year or so later, when I was traveling through Illinois, I stopped in to visit them. There’s nothing like the smell of freshly ground coffee. We were given the tour. I was impressed by all of the coffee bags stamped with images from all over the world. We even got to see how they roasted, ground and bagged the coffee.
