not impressed. overpriced (don't ask for an extra's $2 on top of the $5 they charge for a 10 oz get that sticker shock when they ring you up. It's not on the menu.) and they never even made my drink after 20 minutes. Asked for a refund, the cashier had no idea what I ordered, spent another 10 minutes trying to find my order, and didn't know how to do issue the refund once she found it. So then she had to get the manager. Who also had to had no idea and had to figure out how to grant a refund, and who couldn't tell if the register had added the credit back to my card or not. I was offered a cash refund, then he changed his mind, and I was asked to leave my contact info and check back in 4 days. Nope. Keep the $7 and $1 tip for that hassle. They did offer a free drink for my trouble but I won't be back.

This new retail Revelator location is modern, clean and hip. The pour over bean selection changes regularly. On my last visit I had fabulous Colombian beans prepared with v60. Wonderful to discover such excellent coffee and location in downtown Birmingham.

When this location opened nearly 4 years ago, I was excited, and actually knew some of the employees from my prior coffee work experience. About a year or two later, I became disappointed with the coffee I ordered sometimes and with the overall atmosphere. But that has since changed drastically for me. I absolutely love the cold brew and the pourover is exceptional. Their tea selection, while not huge, is fabulous. The staff has had several turn arounds in the last few years. (I have lost track of the many individuals who have worked there.) Over the last year I have gotten to know many of them well (as well as many at Octane, their counterpart in the company), and they are some of the kindest people out of most coffee shops in town. Their current manager is a ray of sunshine and very kind to all his customers. Favorite place to go to get out of the office.
