A typical coffee roasting day starts with warming up the machine. During this warm up, we are usually packing coffee, brewing, weighing out batches, and of course having discussions about the coffee industry, business, and life in general.
Over time, we realized these encouraging and passionate conversations should be documented and shared with others. This is an invitation into the discussions we're having at Mirror Coffee Roasters.

    80 | Home Baristas Are Pushing Innovation In The Coffee Industry

    When it comes to making coffee, we tend to lean towards putting an emphasis on the basics of brewing. It's easy to overcomplicate coffee extraction, different brewers, and entertaining speculations so much that we lose the basics that get us most of the results.  On the other hand, if it wasn't for the desire to push the boundaries of what's possible and obsess over the details, we would be very far behind where we are now. Thanks to the rise of a niche group of folks, innovation is being encouraged more and more in our industry.

I’d enjoy hanging with these guys

I’m an avid home coffee roaster and find this podcast to hit the right notes: extremely informative without being snooty or elitist, yet not dumbed down. These guys know that anyone can learn to become a skilled roaster no matter the demographic. Their discussions are relatable, funny, thoughtful, socially aware, honest and helpful. Excellent work.

Fun and Informational

Just discovered these guys and found out they’re local to my area! Really been diving into the deep end of roasting, starting to home roast, and plan to start a roastery. The variety and simplicity that they explain things with, while having a great enjoyable time, makes this a top notch podcast in my tool kit! 10/10
