    E150 | Coffee Science: What is coffee science anyway?

    Sure, we could jump into the conversation about sensory science or agricultural science, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. We need some context for the conversation. What is coffee science? What are some fundamental concepts we should get right before we jump into this 12-part series on coffee science? Join me with scientist Jeremy Nelson of Socratic coffee as we break the ice in this conversation.

Great Start For Someone Entering the World of Coffee

I’ve become somewhat obsessed with making good coffee at home recently and I was looking for a podcast that can teach me all about the world of coffee. The Coffee Podcast does just that. I’ve learned about brewing methods, origins, coffee roasters and sustainability programs, all by simply listening to interesting people have interesting conversations. It’s helped me learn all about the world of coffee and has motivated me to start venturing out and asking questions of my own in my local community. I highly recommend listening, as Jesse does a great job engaging his guests and generating new content.

Frustrated with the hosts’ presentation of the information.

I wanted to love this podcast because of the information, which is great. But became so frustrated because I couldn’t even listen to it due to the hosts inability to stop adding words like “kind of” and “you know” to almost every other sentence. It was driving me crazy. Things either are or they aren’t, adding “kind of” to half of your sentences is ridiculous. I mean, do you know enough about coffee to do a podcast on it or not? “Kind of!” 🙄 And as far as “you know” goes. If I knew, I wouldn’t be listening to the podcast!
