Not all coffee myths are built on lies. You would think something called “Super Specialty Coffee”" would be something that falls into a category with snake oil and dancing goats. As it turns out, Jay Ruskey is a tree farmer from California ready to show the world just what Super Specialty Coffee is.

What if I told you you've been getting a coffee variety all wrong? Ever heard of "heirloom" with reference to Ethiopian coffee varieties? You might be surprised at what is revealed in this episode.

E121 | E122 Roasting Series: Home Roasting

Episode 121 & 122: Home Roasting

Home roasting is a fast growing market (remember what coffee consultant Scott Rao had to say AND coffee historian Professor Jonathan Morris). I can't blame the market, in fact, I'll probably be part of that growth very soon! So let's dive right into the topic of home roasting with two very special guests.

E119 | E120 Roasting Series: What Goes on the Bag? (Part I & Part II)

Episode 119 & 120: What Goes on the Bag?

Bag design is a bit of a topic in more ways than one. It is sort of an endless topic because it is a topic on art that trickles from design into marketing and thus affects sales. If you ignore bag design, you ignore the value of your brand. Is there a right or wrong way to tackle bag design? Find out with two of our favorite designers in the industry, Todd Purse of Brandwine Coffee Roasters and David Salinas of Department of Brewology.
