Brewers and Roasters.
Mike and I recorded from a local park while drinking Bella Donovan from Blue Bottle. We talked about brewing method and devices we’re using, including the French Press, the AeroPress, the Bon-Mac pour over, the Bodum grinder, and whether you need to go “full fancy” with a grinder as we look at the Bodum. We also checked in on the coffee supplies available at Wal-Mart and found a surprisingly robust selection.
We talked about the Cat&Cloud Coffee podcast, our YouTube channel, and I set my bag on an anthill. That led us to the role design plays in brand likability, where flavored creamers fit in the coffee drinkers life, and what state of undress Mike would be in while roasting in his garage.
Finally, we decided to pull the trigger and purchase a Behmor 1600+ from Sweet Maria’s. It’s the first real step we took from being consumers and critics to being producers and contributors to the specialty coffee world.
