We are Curiosity - a neighborhood hangout and coffee shop in downtown Columbia, SC, USA who strive to connect people through good times and good vibes. We are an open, inclusive community who celebrate the wacky and weird.
We work with a variety of coffee roasters around the USA - showcasing some of our favorite roasters at our shop and in our online shop and collaborating on coffee bags we import ourselves or through importers such as Ally Coffee and Balzac Bros. Through travel and coffee cuppings - we curate interesting selections of coffee that we send to roasters such as 1000 Faces (Athens, GA), Reprise Roasters (Chicago), and Joe Van Gogh (NC).
We only purchase ethically-sourced coffees and strive to find more and more coffees with more transparency in farmer’s pay.
We work with a number of artists and collectives for the coffee mugs, greeting cards, magnets, stickers, and other fun stuff you’ll find here such as Citizen Ruth (Portland, OR) and Paper Wolf Design (Upstate NY).
