Ever wonder why your coffee often tastes so much better when brewed at a café? Freshness is a huge factor, which is one of the reasons we’re fans of Radio Roasters in Decatur, Georgia. Founded by former NPR and CNN reporter Chip Grabow, the company focuses on small-batch and seasonal releases, and each order is roasted, packaged and shipped by Grabow himself, within 48 hours, to ensure maximum freshness. But the buck doesn’t stop there. With the option of three sizes—4 oz., 12 oz. or 16 oz.—you can choose just enough beans for your needs, further ensuring maximum freshness. Try the Sulawesi Toraja A for a good intro to the line; it’s a smooth, earthy brew with undercurrents of lemon.
