Drink of the Week: Batdorf & Bronson Brazil Pedra Redonda

Coffee culture in the South is at an all-time high, and today’s Drink of the Week proves why. The Brazil Pedra Redonda from Batdorf & Bronson (who has roasting facilities in Atlanta, Georgia and Olympia, Washington) is a honey-processed coffee, which means the fruit and skin around the bean is removed but the sticky mucilage underneath dries on the bean, creating a light honey-colored appearance prior to roasting. The result is a smooth and mellow body with sweet, earthy flavors and a hint of acid on the finish. It’s the perfect way to start your day—in fact we’re about to pour ourselves a second cup.
