Recently, I met with Scott Ott, the owner of Maple City Roasters, which is a local independent coffee roaster located in Michigan City.
Scott is a graduate of LaPorte High School and for more than 30 years he worked in the printing business. He said, “When the economy went south a few years ago, I had to find another profession. I had some friends that were interested in the coffee business and they invited me to visit some Costa Rica coffee farms. You might say I was hooked and in 2012 I bought this business.”
