Our Tour of Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters

Monday, January 30, 2012

Back in November, Scout Mob offered a "Hand-Picked" deal to visit the Atlanta coffee roasting operation for the Olympia, WA based coffee company Batdorf & Bronson. The $25 purchase price included 2 hours of touring the facility (which has been in Atlanta since 1994), learning about the history of coffee, sampling Batdorf & Bronson blends, 2 bags of beans to take home, a coffee mug, and to top it all off, a slice of Pie Shop's Chocolate Cream Pie made with Batdorf & Bronson coffee and Cacao Atlanta chocolate -- Whoa!

Our tour was yesterday (photos below) and led by Jason Dominy, the Customer Support & Outreach Coordinator for Batdorf & Bronson. Jason has been in the coffee business for 15 years....  having opened 2 coffee shops of his own, then working for Caribou, and has now been with Batdorf & Bronson just over two years. His hand poured coffee will change your idea of what drip coffee should taste like. Jason's aim is to get coffee drinkers to take a culinary approach to making coffee using fresh ground beans, ground just before you make your cup, and he suggests using a "Clever Dripper" rather than a traditional coffee maker. For more, watch the video below to see Jason's techniques for making the perfect cup everytime.
