Scenes from the Portrait Coffee Roasters Pop-Up at beSOCIAL

On Saturday, February 1st, Atlanta’s newest local coffee roaster Portrait Coffee Roasters (fresh from a successful Kickstarter campaign, which ACS supported) held a pop-up at the beSOCIAL coworking space/hub.

Atlanta Coffee Shops was on the scene to speak to the founders and capture some photos from the event.

The event was full (perhaps even over capacity, as some people were lined up outside the front doors of the beSOCIAL space)—a testament to the popularity and mission of this new coffee shop/roaster coming to Atlanta’s West End neighborhood in 2020.

At this pop-up, the founders held a Q&A about their mission, their branding/design, and even answered some questions about how to best brew a great cup of coffee at home. ACS will bring together a full feature post about Portrait Coffee Roasters closer to their official opening in Atlanta later this year.

At the Portrait Coffee Roasters pop-up, there were Ethiopia and Guatemala coffee beans for sale. Portrait Coffee Roasters commented about this pair of coffees on their Instagram page:

The Guatemalan coffee has a rich body with flavor notes of raspberry and lime. Taking a sip of it will remind you of biting into a juicy strawberry. The Ethiopian coffee is reminiscent of a warm rooibos tea, light and floral on the palate with a hint of blueberry and vanilla flavor.

ACS purchased a bag of the Guatemalan coffee to take home.

The space at beSOCIAL was beautifully presented and welcoming. It was apparent that a lot of consideration and effort went into this pop-up. Seen is some detail from the shelves:

This was such a fun event! The community support for Portrait Coffee Roasters has been wonderful to witness so far.

Atlanta Coffee Shops is looking forward to the official grand opening of the Portrait Coffee Roasters storefront in the West End neighborhood of Atlanta later this year.

Congrats to the entire Portrait Coffee Roasters team on their successful Kickstarter campaign as well the success of this pop-up!
