Episode 57 - KRUVE
Grind size remains one of the most challenging and inconsistently communicated aspects of coffee brewing. Despite having a consistent language to communicate temperature, water chemistry, brew ratios, etc. it's often frustrating to nail down a repeatable grind size and share that information with others. Today we're joined by Karol and Adam Krupa from KRUVE to talk about how their coffee sifter solves that problem, allowing every cup to taste its best. They explain how the KRUVE came to be, who it's best suited for, and some tips and tricks to getting the most out of it.
Episode 56 - SCA Product Recap
We're wrapping up our series of interviews from this year's SCA Expo with four quick conversations with some of the top brands in specialty coffee for the home brewer. We're talking with Baratza about the Sette 30, Third Wave Water about some upcoming new formulations, Acaia about their Orion and scale updates, and Fellow about the STAGG Electric Kettle!
Episode 55 - Intersectionality Recap with Michelle Johnson
We’re honored to have Michelle Johnson join us to recap the Intersectionality panel from Episode 54. Michelle is the Sprudgie award winning founder of The Chocolate Barista, creative marketing director at Barista Hustle, and a long-time friend of the show. Buckle up and take a listen!
Episode 54 - The Intersectionality Panel
At the Global Coffee Expo in Seattle, we had the opportunity to sit in on a truly inspirational panel called "Intersectionality, Building Influence, and Changing Power Structures" moderated by Michelle Johnson of The Chocolate Barista & Tracy Ging, co-founder of the Coffeewoman. The panel was focussed on gender, race, and inequality, and how to remove barriers and foster change within the coffee industry. On the next episode, we'll talk more with Michelle Johnson, so stay tuned!
Episode 53 - Expo Interviews - The Cost of Coffee
This past weekend we attended the Global Coffee Expo in Seattle where we were able to interview some amazing people in the specialty coffee industry. The first episode in a series of those interviews, we're talking about the cost of coffee with the producer of some of the worlds most expensive and prized coffees - Graciano Cruz, as well as a long-time veteran of the coffee industry in LA who recently started selling cups for just $1, Tonx.
