    Stimulating stories or fantastic flavours: what sells coffee?

    Stimulating stories or fantastic flavours: what sells coffee?

    Behind every cup of coffee is a farmer. What happens when you reach out and get to know who they are?

    Scott and Jools put to the test whether a coffee farmer's story is more powerful than the flavours in the cup.

    What is the right way to communicate the story of the farmer to the coffee drinker?

    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.
