Who needs rain drops on roses or whiskers on kittens? Two of my favorite things are my Jeep and Jittery Joes.
What’s so great about Jittery Joe’s? Well, in my opinion, not only do they make great-tasting coffee, I love that they’re local, their story and the way they support our community culture.
They create special blends of coffee honoring local bands, celebrating the biking community, partnering with other Athens businesses and benefitting local efforts and organizations like: Drive-By Truckers, Terrapin Beer Co., Sprockets Music Video Festival, and my alma mater Grady College of Journalism. The names of the blends alone are worth a visit to their website. Look under “Partnerships.”Jittery Joes first opened in 1994 right next to Athen’s famous 40-Watt and was frequented by the likes of R.E.M. and the B-52s. Rolling Stone Magazine named it one of the top 24-hour coffee houses in America.
