Do you enjoy beating the summer heat with a chilly coffee beverage? We're back one year later to revisit our discussion about cold coffee preparations and to cover some of the interesting developments since our last discussion.
We're talking with Jake Miller and Hanna McPhee from Fellow, the makers of the Duo Coffee Steeper and the Stagg Kettle, all about the challenges of Kickstarter, how they design and build beautiful coffee gear, and we even get a sneak peak into their upcoming lineup of products.

With the launch of the revolutionary new Sette grinder in sight, we're honored to have Baratza's cofounder and mechanical genius Kyle Anderson join us on the show. This episode is packed with great information about Baratza's history, their current lineup, the unique technology and features of the Sette grinder, and some startling revelations about Baratza's plans for the Sette and future roadmap near the end.
On this episode we've bellied up to the slow bar for a rapid-fire chat about the science of coffee with Maxwell Mooney from Spotted Cow Coffee in Mill Creek, WA. We're going back to brass tacks about the nerdier points of extraction, ratios, batch sizes, roast levels, agitation, water temperature and much, much more.
How do coffee shops source green coffee? What does it mean that coffee is a seasonal product? Is there really such a thing as a good decaf coffee? We're honored to be joined on this episode by Mike Marquard and Evan Jones of Blueprint Coffee in Saint Louis, Missouri to answer these questions and many, many more.
Digging into the mailbag this week to answer a common question we get asked, "When you get a coffee in, how do you dial it in?" We cover what we're looking at when getting into a coffee and how we adjust different parameters to get the most out of a cup. Got a tip you enjoy? Be sure to reach out to us and share your experiences!
Hot on the heels of our AeroPress episode, this week we're focussing on three of the most popular pour over brew methods. That's right, we're talking about the Chemex, Kalita Wave and the Hario V60. We cover what makes each of these methods unique, what challenges one might face in getting started in pour over brewing, and also how we 'dial in' a pour over brew.
On this episode we're talking all about the AeroPress - a brew method created by Alan Adler, president of Aerobie, in 2005. Though brewing with the AeroPress can be quite simple, there are many features that make it a prime candidate for experimentation. Listen along as we discuss the fundamentals of brewing on the AeroPress, what's great (and maybe not so great) about it, and some fun ways to tinker with it at home.
