Our Story

Ed Lane, David Lane, and William Rankin, Atlanta natives and co-founders of Blue Donkey Coffee, all love the beautiful complexities of micro-roasted coffee. Their appreciation for craft coffee developed while living overseas and exploring the domestic roasting and brewing culture.

The ultimate pursuit of a great cup of coffee inspired in them for a new passion: craft iced coffee. After months of ingredient selection, brewing methods, and recipe testing, the team revealed their creation to family & friends; It was an instant success. They then began selling their craft coffee products at local farmers markets, receiving extremely positive feedback from customers. Since Blue Donkey has expanded to additional retail and pop-up locations within the Atlanta area continually focusing on innovative iced coffee offerings and a few highly selective craft coffee products.
