Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters

I photographed the coffee roasters at Batdorf & Bronson at their roasting facility in Atlanta for a Three of a Kind photo feature for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Monday, December 5, 2011. Batdorf & Bronson originated in Olympia, Washington and expanded to the Atlanta area in 1994. In 2007  the company opened their own shop, Dancing Goats, in Decatur. The roasting facility produces between 500 and 1000 pounds of coffee per day. These are some of my favorite images.
