1000 Faces Coffee Co. | Athens, GA
Ébrīk | Atlanta, GA
Echoing the spirit of the original Mediterranean café, Ébrīk was founded in 2014 by family and friends wanting to bring a welcoming and inclusive coffee shop to the heart of downtown Atlanta, where folks needed a place to unwind and reconnect after the daily hustle. Whether small-batch specialty coffee or book talks and open-mics, three simple principles define the Ébrīk experience: "Community - Comfort - Culture.” For seven years, Ébrīk invited their guests to ‘come together, reconnect, and recharge' at their three coffee houses, in Decatur, Downtown, and on the campus. Like many, the global pandemic has caused them to reflect and reevaluate, ultimately leading them to the hard decision: close two locations and shift focus to roasting and building an online community. As their storefront grows increasingly virtual, so does their advocacy and community building. From pioneering and committing to a social solidarity supply chain pledge to publishing on coffees complex relationship to gentrification, Ébrīk, and its’ leadership, is proactively acting to create conversation around their craft. You can explore Ébrīks’ current coffee offerings and revisit their dialogues and articles online, or grab a coffee at their Emory location located in Michael C. Carlos Museum.
