Win it at the Market: Banjo Cold Brew Coffee

Our farmers and local vendors appreciate all the folks who come to our markets every week. For all the folks who go the extra mile and bring a new person along to one of our My Market Club markets, we want to thank you! As a token of our gratitude, each month, My Market Club will hold a raffle for great free prizes. Bring a friend who is new to the market along on your next visit! They’ll get $5 and you’ll be entered to win free goodies from your favorite local vendors.

This month, the raffle prize at Decatur Farmers Market comes from Atlanta’s own Banjo Cold Brew Coffee. We asked them a few questions to get to know a little bit more about them.
How did you all get started in the coffee business?
After a decade in the corporate world, we all wanted to develop a business around the principles of the local, high-quality, and artisan movement in Atlanta. Combining this with our coffee obsession, Banjo was born. Cold brewing allows you to taste a lot more of the natural flavors of coffee, and pick up on aromas that you otherwise may not smell. This drew us into the method of cold brewing and we’ve never looked back.
What’s your favorite thing about your market?
It allows us to get first-hand customer reactions to our products instead of sending them out in the retail world with no direct feedback. Generally, people are pretty candid, which we love. That helps us to know what is working and what is not. Also, we love talking to interesting folks!

What is your number one passion outside of work?
There can’t be just one! The outdoors and traveling – hiking, running, sporting events – you name it! Chasidy is an avid hiker, Billy runs ultra marathons, and we all love to travel. 

What’s your favorite food or recipe?
Outside of coffee, right?

  • Chasidy – Chocolate! My lifelong love covers all genres of chocolate. 
  • Billy – Pasta, and anything with bourbon – except pasta. 
  • Sebastian – Smoked ribs, potato salad, and mac & cheese because even though I’m German, I’m really a Southerner at heart.
