ABOUT US

Barbell Brew coffee is roasted in Troy, Ohio. The facility that was once solely used for fitness, now serves a dual role. In 2017, Barbell Brew was established; combining our passion for the barbell and a good cup of brew.

Our premium single origin coffee beans are air-roasted in one pound batches. Small batch roasting allows for specific temperature profiles to be used, enhancing regional flavors and creating a smooth tasteful cup.

Owner and coffee roaster Ty Gulker has been a coffee connoisseur for over 15 years. Growing up he was taught the process of artisan coffee roasting from his dad, the "original roast-master" Joe Gulker.

Ty is married to his best friend, nurse manager, super-mom and coffee-taste-test-extraordinaire, Ashlee. Their favorite activities include working out together, eating and of course drinking coffee! In November, Ty and Ashlee welcomed baby boy Aiden Michael to the Barbell Brew team!
