After working together at several cafés in Atlanta and consulting a roaster in Australia, Baristas-Owners Dale Donchey and Jordan Chambers finally branched out on their own java-venture. First came Rattletrap, where Donchey and Chambers equipped a 1982 Volkswagen with a two groove espresso machines and took brews to the street. A few months later, Donchey and Chambers opened Steady Hand Pour House, their technique-forward coffee shop wherebrewing methods look like they belong in science labs more than a kitchen. Not only do patrons have the option to enjoy Chemex-brews, they also have the rare chance (at least in the Southeast) to try a Siphon-brewed coffee, which is as visually exciting as it is distinct on the tongue. Although technique reigns mighty here, there’s no holding back on creativity either (their Cola Cocktail is an icy and delightful nod to the Atlanta-based soda).
