This season of the Playback Podcast has brought you ministry leaders, IT specialists, and now the founder of a coffee roastery. Brian Holland started Phoenix Roasters Coffee, a non-profit coffee roastery based in the heart of Atlanta. Phoenix uses proceeds to support the Atlanta community as well as the communities of the farmers who grow the coffee beans.
Phoenix Coffee evolved after years of building and leading a church. Brian and his family started a church in 2007 and then saw some financial struggles when the housing market collapsed. Determined to continue serving the community, Brian sought out new business opportunities and eventually stumbled upon the perfect series of events that lead to the founding of Phoenix Roasters.
In episode 8 of Playback, you’ll hear Brian share the good, the hard, and the outright incredible story of Phoenix rising to where it exists today.
