New Roaster Arrives at Buona Caffe!  

This news has been a long time coming and we’re so excited to share it with you! On Thursday, July 28, we took delivery of our new Diedrich IR-12 roaster. Hand-crafted to our specifications in Ponderay, Idaho, the new roaster lets us more than double our roasting capacity and gives us infinitely more control over the roast profile of all the coffees we offer. If you think our coffee is good now, it’s going to get even better!

This roaster not only benefits you as a fan of great coffee and us as a business, it also benefits the environment. Its patented infrared burners reduce noxious gas emissions by 50 percent compared to roasting on a traditional blue flame and it is much more energy efficient.


And we have to give a shout-out to Georgia Bank & Trust, which provided the financing. The big banks won’t even talk to a small company like ours. Our local bank believed in us and can see the difference we’re making in the community. Shop local, bank local! 
Getting the roaster into the shop was an adventure since it weighs about a half ton. We’re so thankful to our great customers who cleared their schedules to help us deliver it safely to its new home!!

Let the Roasting Begin!

Then sign up for our first of many classes to come.  Coffee Appreciation, at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 18!

Shhh! It’s a secret and we’re only telling you. We have a new drink called a Study Buddy. It’s not on the menu, so you can only get it if you know about it.
Available hot or iced, this coffee drink dosed with two shots of espresso is designed to fuel those all-night study sessions our Augusta University and Paine College students will be pulling this fall. That’s the caffeine equivalent of drinking three cups of coffee at once!
Best of all, it’s our only BOGO. Through the end of fall semester exams, buy one Study Buddy for $4.75 and get one free. So bring a friend and your books and power through a study session!

But remember, the only way to get this deal is to ask for it! #StudyBuddy
