From bean to mug, learn the basics from the most passionate coffee roasters in town. Includes a tour, tasting, plus some take-home coffee goodies, too.
There’s few things in our world more beautiful, more life-changing, more necessary than coffee. Okay, there are probably a few things (and those may or may not include pie). Regardless, the complexities of coffee, from bean to roaster to mug, is something its drinkers should appreciate and understand, if not only to agree that a stale can of Folger’s should never ever be considered an acceptable substitute.
Atlanta’s Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters provide us with some of the most exceptional quality beans sourced from fair-trade farms all over the world and then roasted right here on the Westside of Atlanta. Jason Dominy, the Ambassador of All Things Batdorf and Atlanta Coffee, will serve as your tour guide and shepherd you to some of the freshest, finest tasting joe that you’ve ever sipped. If there’s ever been anyone to turn a jaded Starbucks addict into a dedicated drinker of only the freshest, locally-roasted bean juice... it’s this guy sporting the beard and a deep love of Clever drippers.
On this tour, you’ll have the full experience from burlap sack of beans to cast-iron drum roasting, to sorting and packing, then small-batch brewing and, finally
, tasting of the final product. You’ll leave with a greater appreciate of the origins, the process, the art of coffee. You’ll understand why, with good coffee, you’ll never need to add cream or bastardly sweetener to make it taste palatable.
