Traffic is one of Atlanta’s most dependable experiences. In a city that’s always changing, with weather that’s never predictable, traffic is the constant. Traffic is East Pole’s constant coffee. Though it comes from different coffee producers and origins, depending on what’s in season, you can count on Traffic to always be approachable, easy to drink, full-bodied, and sweet.

Our current Traffic selection is grown on a female owned and operated farm and imported by Balzac Brothers. Here’s some more info from their site:

The combination of excellent farming practices, high mountains, geographical position, and the leadership of women has resulted in the exceptional lot that we now call the Kumara Blend. 

Catalina Vásquez, a fourth-generation coffee producer, helps manage and market harvests from her family's three coffee farms in Antioquia. Through her family's decades of growing experience and her forward-thinking, entrepreneurial eye, Catalina and her family have invested in other farmers throughout the country to create a modern Colombian coffee brand called Cafelumbus.
