August 2011 marks the beginning of a 25th anniversary celebration at Batdorf & Bronson® Coffee Roasters.
For the next three months Batdorf will commemorate a commitment to extraordinary coffee, service and sustainability by visiting with employees. Visit this blog to find new interviews with or introductions to Batdorf employees through the end of the year. Established in 1986 in Olympia, Washington, Batdorf & Bronson® quickly became one of the premiere specialty coffee roasters and retailers in the northwest. Committed to providing fresh roasted coffee to all customers, regardless of geography, Batdorf opened a second roasting plant in Atlanta in 1994.
In addition to two roasting facilities, Batdorf & Bronson® owns and operates three retail locations in Olympia and one in Atlanta. In addition to a reputation for great coffee and unmatched customer service, Batdorf & Bronson® is known as a great place to work. Several employees have been with the company for more than half its existence and a few since the beginning. Batdorf & Bronson® President, Larry Challain, says At Batdorf & Bronson® we are as committed to each other and our mutual success as we are to the quality of our coffee and service and the ideals behind operating in a sustainable manner. We cant think of a better way of celebrating our silver anniversary than by celebrating our employees.
