In this episode, we're joined by Mike Lackman, CEO of Trade Coffee, a coffee company that unites over fifty of the best roasters in the country with 400+ coffees that are rich in variety and taste. They offer this coffee to consumers nationwide on a subscription basis.
We can compare Trade Coffee to Netflix, but for coffee. It's an innovative approach to retail that other businesses can also apply. Mike has some valuable advice about designing consumer experiences by gathering data in a survey to then curate recommendations.
Moreover, we talk about the importance of the story behind a product. Also, we discuss how to highlight your suppliers, the source of your product, and search for and take forward the uniqueness of the people, product, geography, and process involved in bringing a product to market.
