The Ultimate Coffee Road Trip Across the United States.
This week: Atlanta
Editor’s note: We began publishing reports from Don Niemyer about the cafes he visited on his cross-country coffee tour back in the summer of 2013, and we’ve loved following his journey, learning about amazing coffeehouses out there in the United States, ever since. We’ll be publishing reports from Don about his recent journey around the Central and Northern states every Saturday until ”well, until Don makes it to a stopping point. To catch up on Don’s earlier posts about his explorations of coffee culture throughout the Western United States, click HERE. Following are links to Don’s posts from this current Saturday Series:
What do Coca Cola, CNN, and the Atlanta Falcons have in common? If you said they each are wildly popular, yet inherently evil concoctions of mankind, then you are at least half correct! (Hey, I’m a minimalist coffee guy and Pittsburgh Steelers fan ”what’d you expect?) But that’s not the half to which I happen to be referring today. Of course, I’m talking about the fact that they are all headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, this week’s stop on the Rialta Coffee Tour. Even though we’d already been to Savannah, we ended up back in Georgia because I have a brother who lives in Atlanta. Sounds like a great excuse to check out the local coffee scene while I’m in town, right?
So there it is, two birds with one stone! My brother sends his greetings, and the Atlanta coffee scene is sending out an invitation. If you’re ever in the area, they are not to be missed! Unfortunately, we couldn’t stay in the area our own selves long enough to get to all the great shops in Atlanta, but that’s how it goes. And speaking of going, next Saturday we’ll be going through Birmingham then up to Nashville, so be sure to check back! Until then, follow us at our social media sites, or at DonNiemyer.com.
