A Letter From The Owner


My name is Chris Barr, the owner and roaster at Pounds Coffee. I want to personally thank you for being a part of our story – it is people like you that allow us to do what we love. It is people like you that can help us continue to build relationships through the shared love of coffee.

The heart behind starting Pounds was to effect and change people’s mornings for the better. For me, my morning consists of time to get quiet and still for a few minutes. It’s my quiet time, my morning routine, and it usually happens with a cup of coffee. 

My personal story is that when I start right, the rest of my day has a tendency to be more positive. If in any small way, Pounds Coffee helps bring families together in their home to rally around and enjoy the process of making or drinking their morning coffee, then I feel like we all won. Not because the coffee matters, but because family matters.

We began this journey in January 2015 serving a small network and grew to full production in 2016 in our first roastery in Watkinsville, Georgia.

I would love to personally invite you to share Pounds Coffee with everyone who you think may enjoy the taste and experience of Pounds Coffee at home or at work. Starting a business takes a lot of work, but growing a business takes a lot of people like you.

Get connected and stay connected with us. As we continue to grow, I want you here with us. Thank you for being intentional to share Pounds Coffee with your world, and please don't hesitate to reach out to me personally if I can help in any way.
