Alton Brown has plans to open a coffee shop in Marietta

The locally-based host of "Good Eats" is also apparently serious about good coffee.

Yesterday, Alton Brown -- who, in addition to previously hosting “Good Eats,” “Cutthroat Kitchen” and “Iron Chef America”, also wrote the James Beard Award-winning book “I’m Just Here for the Food”  -- tweeted about his desire to open a coffee shop in Marietta, where he lives:

While he didn't elaborate on Twitter, Eater got a comment via email from Brown, who confirmed his intention to open a coffee shop in town, but said, "though I’m not at a point where I can release any details.”

If the coffee shop comes to fruition, it'll be one item on a long list of ventures for Brown. In addition to his TV hosting duties (he's planning a new Food Network show for 2017), he released the cookbook "EveryDayCook" last year (which AJC food writer Wendell Brock named one of the top cookbooks of 2016),  and often tours with his band the Edible Inevitable Trio .
