Standard Pour episode!

I loved this episode! Very thoughtful and thorough interviewing really brought out the reflections and the experiences of a Black women-owned coffee business owner and first-time entrepreneur.

My key takeaway is that sometimes it’s daunting to realize your visions, but once you start working towards it, you find community willing and able to support you in manifesting your dreams along the way.
Keep doing what you do!

Amazing resource

I’ve been a listener for years and am finally getting around to reviewing. This podcast is a PHENOMENAL resource for all things coffee. Managing tips? Got em. How to get into competition? It’s here. Unionization efforts? Covered. Roasting and sourcing conversations? Oh you betcha. Love it and cannot recommend this podcast enough.

Amazing

I'm kind of surprised that this show doesn't have more reviews. It's given me so much information and resources to move forward in the coffee community. Ashley does a wonderful job of highlighting the issues that this industry faces.
