So far, we’ve done Coffee Ambushes all over the country, with the bulk of them obviously being in the Atlanta area. We’ve done really cool ones like Adult Swim, MailChimp, Coca-Cola, PopCap Games and more, and yet there was one Ambush that I wanted to do more than all the others, and that was The Cartoon Network. It’s also been the most difficult one to schedule, too, from a logistics perspective. So, you can imagine, it was the most rewarding one to do, and I was glad to be there yesterday with the team I assembled from all over Atlanta to make it happen. Yesterday, we Ambushed the Digital floor, which includes Digital, Enterprises, Marketing and Research, and next week, we head up a floor to Creative.
Assisting me with this Ambush was: Chandler Rentz, trainer for Batdorf & Bronson; Jonathan Pascual, owner of Taproom Coffee (a new coffee/beer shop in Kirkwood opening up this Spring); Greg Gamewell, barista at the Ponce City Dancing Goats shop; Rob Adair, barista at Copper Coin in Woodstock; and Amanda Diegel, a friend who I met through a Coffee 101, and she took most photos and videos. The coffee I used was Batdorf & Bronson’s Nicaragua Finca Santa Gema Natural, which was delicious all morning long, and all who came LOVED it.
Suffice to say, it was a successful first Cartoon Network Ambush, and we’re looking forward to heading back next week for Round 2!
