Our Approach

Our sourcing is driven by knowledge, experience, and trust.

We build relationships with our coffee producers because we know they can only deliver great coffee if they have engaged partners. We source seasonally, keeping our menu fluid, and choose expressive coffees that showcase variety and region.

Our offerings are simple and our menu is intentional.

OUR HISTORY

Revelator is a coffee roaster and café operator with our roots in metro markets across the Southeast. While specialty coffee is the origin of our brand, we approach coffee from a broader culinary perspective. We empower regional leadership and F&B talent to create memorable café experiences, genuinely inspired by the people and places in their community.

We started in 2014, opening our first location in Downtown Birmingham’s historic theater district in the fall. Founders Josh Owen, Emma Chevalier, and Elizabeth Pogue met in New Orleans and, for the first few months of operation, the company roasted with friends in the Crescent City. By the time summer 2015 rolled around, Revelator opened a 15,000 sq ft roasting facility in Birmingham and started developing cafes in Atlanta, where we are now headquartered.

Our team is comprised of roasters, production workers, operations and supply chain managers, wholesalers, accountants, marketers, and designers. Seen or unseen, we're all working to ensure that our customers have the best experience possible in our cafés.
