    6) The Future of Coffee?

    6) The Future of Coffee?

    Do you grind your beans fresh before brewing your coffee? If so, you are helping overturn a race-to–the-bottom with deep roots in colonial extraction that today is leaving millions of coffee farmers impoverished.

    Or, at least, that’s what many specialty coffee companies would like you to believe. The truth is a lot less rosy.

    In this final episode of A History of Coffee, Jonathan and James explore where the specialty coffee movement came from, whether it will succeed in arresting coffee’s race-to-the-bottom, and look into the future to understand what might be the future of coffee.

    A History of Coffee is a collaboration between James Harper of the Filter Stories - Coffee Documentaries podcast and Jonathan Morris, Professor of History and author of ‘Coffee: A Global History’.

    5) Desperately Seeking Sustainability

    When was the last time you bought a coffee that was Fairtrade certified?

    Certifications make it easy for consumers to put their ethics into practice. But, hidden beneath the glossy sticker is a maze of complications and paradoxical outcomes.

    In this fifth episode of A History of Coffee, Jonathan and James explore where coffee certifications came from, how they tried to stop coffee’s devastating race to the bottom and assess whether they succeeded.

    4) A Dark Bitter Powder

    How do you drink your instant coffee? If you’re like most of the world, you fill your mug with milk and sugar to sweeten the taste.

    By adding milk and sugar to your instant, you helped bring new growers - and consumers - into coffee, but arguably contributed to a crisis that left hundreds of thousands of people malnourished.

    In this fourth episode of A History of Coffee, Jonathan and James explore how the popularity of instant coffee dramatically alters the balance of power amongst coffee growing countries. Coffee as a global commodity takes on a life of its own, sweeping millions of farmers into a race to the bottom.

    3) Coffee Catches Fire

    3) Coffee Catches Fire

    A hundred years ago one Brazilian man owned so many coffee trees he could fill every inch of a European country with them.

    But why does Brazil grow so much? And who is drinking these lakes of caffeine?

    In this third episode of A History of Coffee, Jonathan and James explore how industrialisation dramatically and permanently strips away Brazil’s forests, and why coffee becomes a part of the American dream.

    A History of Coffee is a collaboration between James Harper of the Filter Stories - Coffee Documentaries podcast and Jonathan Morris, Professor of History and author of ‘Coffee: A Global History’.

    Stay tuned for the upcoming Instagram live session where we unpack how the British produced coffee in Sri Lanka, and why so many Indians die.

    2) Slavery, Suffering and Affordable Luxury

    Why do we get upset when we’re charged €36 for an ordinary cappuccino?

    The answer flies us to the Caribbean where white Europeans make black Africans suffer.

    In this second episode of A History of Coffee, we uncover how colonialism squeezes the price of coffee, and how that changes European culture forever.

Fun Podcast

I really want to try Tito’s coffee. 👍

For those who are fascinated about coffee and substance

I was in the same situation that another reviewer explained. I stopped listening to podcasts, because I felt they were superficial and I felt irritaded afterwards.

Filterstories are the opposite. A deep dive for people who care beyond blingbling. I feel that this is real food for the brain, that leaves you satisfied. Absolutely great!
