Built Environment Description: Dancing Goats

I visited Dancing Goats Coffee Company which was located in Atlanta very near the Georgia Tech campus. They opened up in the restored Sears building. The company was founded in 1988 yet didn’t move to Atlanta until 1994. As soon as you enter the coffee shop, you can first see the emblem of their company all across various mediums like t-shirt merchandise and coffee cups to coffee drainers and makers.

This coffee cup is minimalistic and relays the nature you see inside the coffee...
