This is a very very in-depth coffee industry podcast James goes in very deeply to all of the stories behind roasting producing and drinking coffee. It is really really worth listening to. I am a coffee roaster for the unseen Bean coffee Company.

The Only Podcast I Listen To

James is akin to the S Town guy in the way he makes the stories intriguing like a page turner story. I love hearing about all the stories connected to my coffee and also you can taste the coffee through the website and man i never knew about all the different type of coffee that are so good haha. My favorite episode is Tito.
