About Us

Drogo Coffee and Tea, founded in 2018, is a female owned company located in Atlanta, GA. We specialize in small-batch coffee, slow-roasted over fire using green coffee beans from small lot, Fair Trade farms, as well as a variety of unique tea blends that we create in-house.

 

We started, like most things do, as a passion of our owner, roaster, and tea-blender, Barrie.

 

Having worked as a barista for corporate, big-name coffee companies and developing cafe programs for local restaurants, Barrie knew that she wanted to do something for herself for a change.

 

Over the next few years, she began to teach herself how to roast coffee, adapting fire roasting techniques to create slow-roasted blends.

 

As an experiment for the holidays one year, she bought ten pounds of green coffee beans to roast as holiday presents.

 

Her thinking was this: "If I roast this coffee and everyone LOVES their gifts, I'll take the plunge and make this my full-time job. If I roast this coffee and everyone HATES their gifts, well, I'll be out ten pounds of coffee and I'll keep my day job."

 

Three years later, you can say that the rest is history.
