Columbus, Ohio's Coffee Culture | 3/12/2018
"Eric Obenauf and Brett Gregory mug for the camera at Two Dollar Radio Headquarters, an indie bookstore, event space, bar and cafe in downtown Columbus. Obenauf founded Two Dollar Radio as an independent publishing company run out of his home in 2005. He and Gregory became co-owners and expanded the business last year. 'We wanted to be part of the community,' Obenauf says, and coffee seemed a natural part of that progression... Two Dollar Radio Headquarters serves One Line Coffee, which is roasted in Heath, Ohio, with plant-based milks."
