Ep 72 - A coffee star and Broadway star shake things up during the pandemic! [Deaton & Chelsea Pigot / Tectonic Coffee]
Deaton Pigot's coffee is so off-the-charts good that Broadway star, Chelsea Morgan Stock, left it all behind for him (and for the bright lights of Hollywood)! :) Well, it wasn't that simple, but they did get hitched and have been inseparable in both life and coffee! A lot of love goes into their roasting company, TECTONIC COFFEE, which is why their coffee is so extraordinary and can be found in some of the best coffee shops around the country.
Now, they're facing the pandemic together, and just like everyone else, are working to overcome the incredible challenges. But they're going above and beyond; bringing coffee and happiness to those who really need it - from giving it away, changing their business around and even hand delivering it when they have to! They tell us how they're doing it all while supporting themselves and others.
Plus Myles and Jason discuss how everything is changing in life since the craziness has started - and how they are adjusting (or not)! And we ask what "simple luxury" YOU are missing? We tell you ours (spoiler: Jason really needs a haircut... really!!).
Grab your cup of coffee and join us!

[SPECIAL] - Coffee during the Corona Virus
We're taking this pandemic seriously. Coffee can help you get through it, and we've got the info you need to help with that: how to get your favorite coffee while at home, what you can expect from your favorite coffee shops, and what they're doing do keep you safe.

COFFEE WE MENTIONED
PT's Coffee Roasting Company - Tulise Beyen Dore (Ethiopian) - Jason says it's so fruity and strong - a perfect morning cup.
Peet's Major Dickason's Blend - Myles likes this robust coffee. It's perfect with milk and will get you going!
Ep 70 - Answers to your burning coffee questions! [ESSPRESSHOW]
Coffee can taste even better when you know what you're drinking. That's why we're answering your coffee questions (and one about our dogs too!)
Is milk in coffee good or bad? The real difference between dark and light roasts. Which do we recommend - blends or single origin coffees? And why you should never ever ever never brew old coffee. Trust us, we don't hold back on our answers!
Plus while we enjoy some great and even BAD coffee (thanks Myles!), we discuss how our weeks have been full of entertaining adventures. Myles' son goes to the doctor and needs the entire medical wing to hold him down! Jason's son's science project takes roller coaster to a new level!
We drink coffee and answering our Listener Mail! Join us for a cup or two - that cup of coffee will taste even better.
COFFEE WE'RE DRINKING ON THIS SHOW:
Forge Coffee Roasters
Peru Estrella Divina
Single origin - notes of sweet peach, creamy caramel, honey and cinnamon.
OUR THOUGHTS: Full of delicious flavor. Super smooth and perfect for anytime of the day!
Ep 69 - Just the notes! Eating/testing coffee flavor profiles! [ESPRESSHOW]
The notes at the bottom of a coffee bag is your guide to finding the perfect tasting coffee. But those notes also can be elusive when you're actually drinking the coffee!
So we decided to test the flavors of some of the top roasters' coffees by combining the notes into an edible concoction and then blind tasting them to see if they truly work together. Sounds "delicious" right? :)
Do the flavors taste as good (or bad) as they sound? Why would a coffee roaster choose to accentuate these flavors? And will this experiment poison us?! (Myles may have a thing or two to say about that!)
Plus, we discuss Jason's difficult conversations with his boy and how they're even "better" while riding a bike. And Myles has a "like father, like son" food experience at a sushi dinner that doesn't have a happy ending!
We're drinking (and eating) some great coffee. Join us for a cup and a spoon-full!
COFFEE WE'RE DRINKING ON THIS SHOW:
Anodyne Coffee Roasting
Colombia La Pradera
Single Origin - notes of blackberry, citrus and dark chocolate
OUR THOUGHTS: Can't get enough of it. Perfect balance of flavors and super smooth. SO GOOD!! (and the notes taste pretty good too!)
Many coffee podcasts out there - but Jason and Myles have the perfect balance of coffee tasting, interviews, "how-tos" and farty dog stories! SO glad I found these guys. Now expand your geographic rule - come up to Central California.
Making Coffee Colorful
Jason, Myles, and their great guests bring the color to coffee in the best way imaginable! Their great content and engaging banter had me hooked from the very first listen. Thanks for putting out such a stellar show guys - keep up the great work!
A great podcast, a must-add to your list
I started listening to this podcast about a month ago. Now? I can't wait for the next episode. Just about 30 minutes of information, humor, stories about the hosts lives and life in general. Fantastic coffee info and resources about local, awesome coffee cafes and roasters too! I've begun to visit the ones they talk about (and rank) on the show! Thanks Jason and Miles for adding 'good' to the world!
