Sunnyside Cup Partners With Goodman Coffee Roasters

Thursday, July 7, 2016

Sunnyside Cup announced that it will be serving Goodman Coffee Roasters.  Sunnyside Cup is owned and operated by sisters, Charity Martin and Melody Kobernik. 

On deciding to carry Goodman Coffee Roasters, Ms. Martin said, “When I moved to Chattanooga in 1998 as a Covenant student, I spent several nights a week studying at Greyfriars, then owned by Ian Goodman. He was influential in my education about excellent coffee and he raised the bar in Chattanooga.  There is a significant cross section between patrons of Sunnyside Cup and Goodman Coffee Roasters.

When Mr. Goodman opened earlier this year, our customers immediately began asking when we would offer their coffee.  We are thrilled to have this opportunity to partner with them.”

Goodman Coffee Roasters is co-owned by Ian Goodman and Aric Annear.  They began roasting coffee at their location in the historic St. Elmo business district in April of this year.  In an article with Daily Coffee News: “Goodman and Annear each said the Chattanooga coffee landscape has changed dramatically since their early days roasting there, with a healthy crop of new micros popping up and introducing many coffee-curious consumers to lighter-than-traditional roast profiles. ‘We profile everything individually, according to the acid profiles that we think work best with the bean,’ Annear said of the Goodman Coffee approach.  ‘We roast everything by hand with no automated roast-profiling software.  We are very close to the bean, very craft-focused.’”

Open since May 1, 2015, Sunnyside Cup is unique in that it offers coffee and breakfast from a food trailer.  It is downtown Chattanooga’s only drive-thru coffee spot.  It is open Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. and on the go for special events on the weekends.  

Owners said, "We have been encouraged by the continued amount of community support that has been offered to us in starting Sunnyside Cup. We are committed to partnering with locally owned businesses in Chattanooga to offer our patrons the very best.” For more information, follow Sunnyside Cup on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
