Old Long Since
Mark and Brian celebrate the end of 2021 with their annual list of ten things. Drinking a Gesha coffee from Finca Momoto, the duo rattle off people who've influenced their writing and coffee careers. Paul Bowman stops by with his bagpipes to perform Auld Lang Syne on the shortest day of the year.
And there's a hand, my trusty fiere!
and gie's a hand o' thine!
And we'll tak' a right gude-willie waught,
for auld lang syne.
Gene Leiterman from Glacier Confection stops by for a visit at the AA Cafe studio to talk about how chocolate is made, from the tree all the way to the bar.

A raconteur of the highest caliber, you will be enraptured by this icon of Tulsa and of the literature of the American West.
Good Coffee = Good Podcast.
This is a very informative podcast. Although the host is a little cocky at first, Brian Franklin talks intelligently about coffee and espresso.I really enjoyed the podcast where he talked about being held at gunpoint when he went to origin. I'm so glad to finally have a down to earth podcast that isn't two hours long and actually airs podcast on a regular basis. Keep drinkin' great coffee.
This Podcast needs to be heard by more people
I am by no means a coffee snob nor a coffee connoisseur, but I have recently learned that I spent most of my life drinking bad coffee. But more importantly, that I have participated in making coffee what it should never have been. An isolated experience. Stick your iPods in and drink bad coffee while typing on your laptop. Coffee is a social drink. To be shared with people who have one thing in common with you: that you both drink coffee. And that’s enough to start a conversation. I love how this podcast emulates the experience of sitting at a coffee shop and being a part of a conversation. Nothing better than that. Great job Brian and Mark. Keep up the amazing work!
Life is too short to drink bad coffee isolated.
Not Your Average (cup of) Joe
