    Ep. 32 Unakki Coffee Collective - Exciting conversation about, the real challenges, issues and most importantly doing business in Coffee by 2 young ladies

    Kathyayini Muddaiah & Rakhee Vishwanath, are the two amazing young ladies that power up @unakki_Coffee_Collective. So here is the scene, Kathyayini, Rakhee and I were in the Car, on our way to @bluetokai Koramangla, (with @itsonlycoffeebaby)  this was for the public cupping of the new harvest from producers doing specialty coffee processing for the first time. While we were in the car, we had recorded this episode. So it honestly seems like a really nice, honest conversation between us, in the car. If you plug into your earphones close your eyes, you can technically seat next to me in the passenger seat while we indulge in this really amazing conversation. Coffee, people, age, work, ethics, quality, struggles, fun, opportunities, gender, generations, work, respect, love, marriage, family, support, coffee processing, specialty coffee, Indian Coffee and more coffee was the topic for the conversation. 
    we did discuss and mention about @kerehaklu @baarbara @asif @bluetokai @jameshoffman @kolliberri @pranathi @aeropress @anaikadu @hippla @nesar @lynn  and more.
    A lil about Unakki Coffee Collective : 
    Unakki
    A Coffee collective community, from Joldal - Palya, Chikmagalur dist. 3700ft - 5000ft
    Aim - to recognise the hard work that goes in coffee farms & help them get recognition
    We started exploring the specialty market very recently from 2020. We aspire to start a revolution in specialty coffee from our region. We focus on improving the quality of our sourced coffee by focussing on all the stages post harvest processing.
    Formed by two women Kathyayini and Rakhee with backgrounds of Architecture and Software, the idea was always to celebrate good coffee.
    "UNAKKI" is derived from a "den of snakes" which has been in our region for more than 400 years. It is worshiped by villagers as it has withheld all the natural calamities and stayed still.

    Ep. 31 Doing Specialty Coffee for the first time! Story of ĀnaiKādu. Risk, Nervousness, Joy & Satisfaction.

    Ep. 31 Doing Specialty Coffee for the first time! Story of ĀnaiKādu. Risk, Nervousness, Joy & Satisfaction.

    A Family residing in the city, move into a Coffee farm and started making some really good coffee.

    Meet the family behind ĀnaiKādu Nisha , Kurian, Anaika & Bella. How their life came to a crossroad, that led them to the world of coffee, and eventually into #specialtycoffee.

    New into this side of coffee, processing coffees for the first time, from being not sure enough to being nervous on how the community would react to the coffee, to actually selling all their specialty processed coffee (sooner than they expected). This is an incredible story of how a (relatively small) coffee farm holder churned some good coffee out. Also getting some really commendable #specialtyrobusta, which is what they primarily grow.

    This podcast is extremely special and unique as it is one episode but there are two parts to the episode, the first half before they got into processing specialty coffee, whereas the other half is post finishing the season and selling all their coffees. I wanted to do an episode like this so that you all (and me) could hear to both parts of the story.

    We talk about corporate life, farm life, how did they went about starting their journey into specialty Coffee, the capital needed, the challenges involved in doing specialty coffee for the first time, cost incurred, if there is any profit at all in doing coffee or specialty coffee. 

    We also spoke about, Harshita from EarthSong Cafe, Prasanna (ex - Harley), Pranoy, Blue Tokai, and more. 



    The artwork from ĀnaiKādu

    The Ānai Kādu artwork has been turning a lot of heads and rightly so. Everything from the logo to the hand-drawn detailed images accompanying the postcards for each of the processes were done by Kurian and Nisha’s good friend and artist and textile designer, Meera Naidu

    Ep. 30 Conversation with a Woman Coffee Planter. Banking to Coffee Plantation a change that is worth listening to. Meet Pranathi Shetty from Kolli Berri, Chikmaglur on this episode :)

    Ep. 30 Conversation with a Woman Coffee Planter. Banking to Coffee Plantation a change that is worth listening to. Meet Pranathi Shetty from Kolli Berri, Chikmaglur on this episode :)

    I have had the pleasure of meeting a few women coffee producers, but meeting someone who runs the entire coffee farm and managing its work, and getting her on my podcast was the first for me. Meet Pranathi Shetty, she currently owns and runs "Kolli Berri" coffee farm by herself along with her mother-in-law. 

    I met her a year ago (virtually) for a prospective work that we planned to do, but sadly that couldn't happen, but I was pleased to meet her IRL for the first time too last year. I knew i wanted to get her on this podcast at some point, to get her take and share her story. She is a 'Bombay' girl studied business and worked in the banking industry for 11 years but now she owns and runs a 'huge' Coffee plantation and a gas station' in Chikmaglur, India. The story of this transformational journey itself is pretty awesome. But what is more amazing, is the story in the details, of how things were, are and hopefully will be in this sort of 'Man dominated' Coffee growers' world. Everything that has happened 'the good, the bad and the weirdly ugly', most of that is shared by Pranathi in this podcast episode. 

    For me this episode is nothing but pure inspiration, and the heart touching stories and experiences Pranathi shares is just pure bliss. Nothing is easy, but also nothing is impossible. This episode is exactly that, conveyed through the conversation. 

    Listen up this episode and see how it is to be a Single Woman, Running a Coffee plantation in the south of India, all by herself and the constant support she receives from her mother-in-law is nothing short of a motivational movie. 

    Hope you enjoy this episode as much as I have enjoyed making it, the starting of the episode has a background sound of Pranathi taking roll calls and doing the daily weighing of the coffees (in the absence of her writer the day I was there).

    Ep. 29 - In conversation with ARAMSE Coffee, talking about Indian filter coffee, James Hoffman & Haldi Wala Doodh (and a lot more)

    Ep. 29 - In conversation with ARAMSE Coffee, talking about Indian filter coffee, James Hoffman & Haldi Wala Doodh (and a lot more)

    HO! HO! HO!  Ep 9 is OUT!

    This latest episode is an amazing conversation with Raghunath from Aramse Coffee. We had thought of doing something together for a long time, and then after a loooong time, we recorded this episode. This episode got recorded sometime back and finally I was able to release it today, which happens to be Christmas. So this fits perfectly as a podcast you can listen to while on your holiday break. Trust me when I say this is a fun episode, busting a lot myths, talking about James Hoffman, the mighty Indian Filter coffee !, other brands too. Decolonising the flavor wheel was a topic we both got a little deep into, which was fun. It was a fun (laughter filled) episode automatically. 

    If you already know about Aramse Coffee, you might have seen their amazing videos on youtube (if not - stop reading this, go and watch that first and follow them there too), we talk about social media, and specifically the behind the scenes of the shoots, what it takes to get that perfect shop of espresso or a drip of coffee into the cup and so on. I believe they have one of the finest videos online, and its not just the beautiful video, but the way them explain things, which is nothing but pure awesomeness - if you see their video on the coffee prices, you would know what I mean

    I initially thought the episode was a bit long, but upon listening to it a few times (over editing), I am just enjoying it and I feel that you all will enjoy it too. 



    we also talk about:

    Ep. 28 - Été Coffee of Nagaland, with Lichan Humtsoe - Founder & CEO

    Ep. 28 - Été Coffee of Nagaland, with Lichan Humtsoe - Founder & CEO

    All the way from NAGALAND! 

    I have been holding off to edit this episode for a very long time. Gor a lot of reasons; 1. This episode is clsoe to my heart, the experience that i had in Nagaland with @atsi @dili & @lichan was beyond amazing. I did not record the podcast with Dili and Atsi (yet), but I do want to share their unique and amazing stories too.

    This Episode is about @lichan and everything behind @etecoffee based in Kohima, Nagaland. If you have not been there, trust me on it and just go! You will not be disappointed or regret it EVER. Everything about Nagaland, the people, the hospitality, the roads, the natural beauty, food, drinks (including water bottle shops :D) is just beautiful and warm. 

    And if you have seen the instagram handle of Ete, you would agree its one of the coolest coffee places on social media (and real). If you have not , go and check it right away. 

    In this podcast we discuss a lot about what went behind starting ETE and how a Roasting business started from roasting in a kadhai (tawa pan). What all roles does Lichan play in running this beautiful business and what were the sacrifices behind. I hope you will like this episode. While recording this episode, it was quite late in the night - around 11 Pm, and by Nagaland standards, that was way Past the normal Deadline. 

    Find out what an amazingly talented, beautiful, dedicated and gem of a person Lichan is and some really hearty stories that he shares, cause thats Justice A CUP ! 





    Cafe is situated at Billy Graham Rd, Kohima, Nagaland 797001

    Ep. 27 Round Table Coffee BakCh*d (Talk)

    Ep. 27 Round Table Coffee BakCh*d (Talk)

    Round Table Coffee Bakch*D (talk)

    One of my dreams was to do this, a podcast session (multiple over a year), where multiple people from different walks of life talk about coffee (casually), and a total free (non interview format) conversation.

    This is Raw, unedited, no script, just honest and (almost) free conversations between people who are a coffee consumer at heart first and friends (Second). I wanted to call it Round Table Coffee Bakchod, cause of one main reason, to make it sound not serious, i think we have taken Coffee too seriously, and thats what the first half of the name suggests 'Round Table' (a corporate -serious kind of affair) but then the last part coffee bakchod, means some conversation which is light hearted (not too serious). 

    Idea was to take serious topics (or important topics) and have a friendly conversation over it. We will have may be one episode, once in a while and have one base topic, but thats it, conversations are not restricted or monitored. This episode is about the first experience of specialty coffee/ first equipment into specialty coffee and our understanding around it. Cause "First Time is always Special" so people say, but honestly it comes special, once you understand things and have a connect with it. (yes still talking about coffee ;).

    Got Some amazing bunch of people in this episode, one from the law background, one form medical research, one from tech, one from software, one a marketing specialist and yours truly. Hope you will enjoy this unedited and raw conversation, as much as we did while we recorded it ( a while ago).

    The episode is live on all the major podcast hosting website/apps (link in the bio as well) - #CoffeeProtocolPodcast

    Lots of Love & like always - Lets make Coffee Simple !
