Aaron and Christie Cromar don’t just share their love for coffee with each other – they share it with the community.
Though the couple has been roasting coffee from their home for a few years, they officially opened the Coffee Room, home to Narrativality Coffee Roasters, last November.
Through this business, they hope their customers gain an understanding of the story of coffee, and all of the steps that are taken before the coffee is poured into a mug and served to customers at the downtown Mount Pleasant coffee shop.
