Rexroo ,

A novel and absolutely necessary approach to invaluable discussions related to the coffee industry

Ryan blasted open the doors to the inner workings, minds and actions of individuals working in the coffee industry. Whereas it’s been accepted and encouraged to shed light on labor, health, and infrastructure inner-workings…and everyone loves to dish on their understanding of “seed to cup”, there is little discussion on the glue that holds these ends together. R!WC gives a voice to the individual and a podium to speak their piece. And I look forward for many, many more seasons to come.

More then you expect!

I’ve listened to all of Ryan’s podcasts from the very beginning and they continue to be interesting and informative. I especially like how the podcasts have evolved into learning about his guests and their unique life journeys. Ryan as the host has a knack for knowing when to listen intently while allowing the guest to tell their story. He keeps the tempo of the show moving with ease. I highly recommend giving the Roast West Coast a listen as well as Ryan’s Coffee Smarter podcast.

Spray Kruger ,

A variety of coffee experiences

I love hearing the range of experiences from the guests on Ryan's show! I have also been able to share my own personal experience as a business owner and green coffee importer. The approach is natural, conversational and very educational.
