    #13 Coffee with a Bite!!

    Did we change the cover of this podcast episode? Hell yeah we did. Anyways we are talking 1 star reviews again  Listen to us talk about bad 1 star reviews people left on the coffee shops that YOU might work at with our good Nasvhille/Humphrey's Street Coffee manager/previous guest Parker Millican. Yeah its the guy who owns a Linea Mini. I'm not jealous, just gonna keep using my fully manual Flair Neo instead. I'd prefer to work extra hard when I brew espresso at home. You just can't beat having to preheat your brew chamber. Who wants to just wake up and push a few buttons on their commercial grade home espresso machine that sits on the kitchen counter? Poser....
    Also, we are talking about TikTok again and asking WTF is White Coffee? Also, how many Mahlkonig Peak Grinders needed their burrs replaced after grinding a container of GREAT WHITE WHITE COFFEE. 
    Big thanks to our Patreon supporters for helping us continue to improve this podcast! We were able to make an upgrade on Zencatr thanks to YOU GUYS BEING FINANCIALLY SUPPORTING US!!! So rad. 
    Hope y'all enjoy this episode and thanks for lsitening!

So excited for this!

Behind the bar perspective of what it’s like to be in the coffee industry!? Sign me up! I love the positive conversation about our industry and what it’s like to be working during COVID and what it was like not to work during quarantine. It’s really awesome to know that the love and support we feel from fellow baristas is nation wide! Excited for the future of this show.
