Made in Chattanooga: Velo Coffee
Stepping inside Velo Coffee is like going behind the scenes of your favorite morning wake-up call. "I guess I got to the point where I wanted to express myself creatively through coffee," owner Andrew Gage explains.
Gage's idea of a good cup of coffee starts thousands of miles away, all around the world. "We are pretty heavy on Latin America, Central American coffee, some from Africa and some Indonesian coffees."
That seed is what we think of as a coffee bean and these seeds are special.
"By the time it gets here, all the work that's gone into it in the farm, harvesting and drying, exporting and warehousing... when it gets to me and I could really mess it up in my roaster," Gage says, "I'm simply trying not to mess it up."
Pouring the seeds into the custom roaster is where the first dose of Science starts, an equation that ensures most batches begin and end the same way.
