    Certified coffee: marketing hype or real world impact?

    Certified coffee: marketing hype or real world impact?

    What coffee should we choose to save the environment and support farmers the most?

    Certifications claim to solve this problem. But do they?

    Jools and Scott embark on a journey to help a friend of the show figure out which is better: Rainforest Alliance or Organic.

    Jools speaks with coffee consultant Stuart Ritson to learn the ins and outs of Rainforest Alliance.

    Meanwhile, Scott speaks to Jose Posada, a Colombian farmer, to get the lowdown on Organic.

    Am I damaging the planet with my coffee habit?

    Am I damaging the planet with my coffee habit?

    Okay, so you forgot to take your reusable cup to the cafe. But, how bad is that, really? What if the reusable cup trend is actually a waste of everyone's time and energy?

    Jools and Scott answer the question: what's the easiest way to massively reduce the environmental costs of your coffee?

    We speak with Tim Ridley of United Baristas to understand what should we actually be measuring in the first place? Marine pollution? Land waste? Carbon footprint?

    We also hop on the line with Toby Weedon of Oatly to get the lowdown on cows' milk and just why exactly it generates so much CO2. And no, it's not the farts!

    Be warned: this episode may change your coffee drinking habits forever.

    Is reaaallly expensive coffee a rip off?

    Is reaaallly expensive coffee a rip off?

    Would you ever pay £75 for 100g of coffee beans?

    Scott and Jools travel to Panama and Bali to decide whether it's all a big marketing scam.

    Panamanian Geisha coffee regularly breaks auction records, with coffee recently selling for over $1000 per pound.

    We hop on the line with Rachel Peterson, co-owner of the famous Hacienda La Esmeralda Estate to discover what Geisha coffee is, where it came from and why people are now saying it will soon reach $10,000 per pound!

    Kopi Luwak are the coffee beans that are eaten and then pooped out by adorable Indonesian civet cats.

    We get the lowdown on this novelty coffee from Janice Girardi, founder of the Bali Animal Welfare Association.

    Be warned: the truth is shocking.
