For folks in the service industry, the moment between shifts is a breath of fresh air – even if it’s wafting with steam and spices from the kitchen crew. Revelator Coffee’s collaboration with The Giving Kitchen, an Atlanta-based organization that provides emergency assistance to restaurant workers, is about that relief, support, and moment of pause.
This Mother's Day, we're celebrating Rachelle Owen: artist, teacher, and mom to Josh Owen, Revelator's CEO and founder, and Travis Owen, our CFO. Rachelle lives in Berkeley, CA and is a talented quilter. Her distinctive quilts hang on the walls of Revelator Coffee in Birmingham, Charleston, Nashville, New Orleans, and Atlanta, a unique and personal gift for each store. This Mother's Day, we asked Rachelle about art, design, and family.
At the end of February, Revelator's head roaster, Cameron Heath, and green buyer, Emma Chevalier, visited Santa Barbara, Honduras, staying with their good friend, Benjamin Paz.
Get a little taste of the trip with Cameron's video, Field Notes from Honduras.
Revelator is committed to giving voice and support to local communities. Since opening our first cafe in downtown Birmingham, we've grown into several cities across the southeast, and we make it a priority to work with local artists, chefs, makers, and organizers to meaningfully engage with the cities we call home.
Last month, our Atlanta Westside store hosted a queer art showcase, SPECTRA, which featured musical numbers, drag performance, and original artwork by some of Atlanta's most celebrated queer artists.
