Jimmy Lewis, founder of Squash Blossom, is opening Relevant Roasters, a wholesale coffee-roasting company, in the Broad Avenue Arts District.
From the press release:
Housed in a 2,480-square-foot space at 584 Tillman Ave. Suite 1, at the corner of Broad and Tillman, the warehouse will feature convection-roasted, environmentally sustainable whole bean and ground coffee. Following renovations, Lewis intends to be operating by the end of August with first batches ready in mid-to-late September. He plans to sell to local coffee houses and targeted specialty grocers.
“A good cup of coffee is nice; a great cup of coffee is awesome,” said Lewis, founder and owner of Relevant Roasters. “I hope to capture that curious group of people who want to try something new.”
