Talking Joe with Rev Coffee
While Atlanta might be the hub of coffee culture in Georgia, 16 miles outside of the city is Smyrna, where Rev Coffee is roasting its own beans, developing inspired drinks, and creating a unique community space all at once. Located in an old Mercedes Benz shop, the café is filled with eclectic assortment of chairs and couches, offering up space to local writers, musicians, and artists. Roasting their beans in house, the Rev boys buy quality beans from reputable importers, changing the lineup of eight offerings with the best seasonal varietals. While Barista Aajay Murphy may have had his start in the coffee industry at Starbucks, his drinks at are far from commercial recipes. Rev offers Chemex-style brews, traditionally brewed espresso and cappuccino, and its own signature creations like the Soy Con with Brazil Cerrado (a vanilla soy iced coffee).
