AA Cafe #71

Garth and I start off a new era of AA Cafe podcasting talking about expensive coffees. Nekisse, La Minita, El Boton Natural and Las Animas Natural, Aricha and Beloya, Geisha, Kona, JBM... I got a great interview with Joseph Brodsky of Ninety Plus. Thanks to him and all the people who helped with our new AA Cafe intro.

AA Cafe #70

This is it. I have the answer. Well, I have a hypothesis anyway. We discuss. Threaded throughout are conversations with Isaiah, with Michael, and with Gabe from Oren's Daily Roast in NYC. Grab yourself a pbr, sit back, and listen.

AA Cafe #69

It's the long lost audio from the SCAA Convention in Anaheim. Gabe Smenhnjkiuoi, Isaiah Sheese, Jeremy Tooker, and myself. We laughed, we cried, we made fun of each other. We made fun of decaf coffee. We made smarmy remarks about some other prominent chaps. All in good fun.

Back on the horse. Garth and I talk about iced coffee, return to COFFEE NEWS!, Shelley Olds and how badass she is on a bike, and we discuss the expansion of the DoubleShot.

AA Cafe #63

This is the one we skipped back in January. Isaiah, Garth and I recorded this podcast when they returned from the South Central Regional Barista Competition in Austin. Isaiah made me promise not to post it until after the USBC in Anaheim. Now that it's over, it's time to make this thing live. This is by far the longest podcast in AA Cafe history- and the first time we've recorded with three people. Lots of talking. If you are curious what the barista competitions are all about, this is the inside track... with lots of analysis.
And for the record, these guys were purposely baiting me, just trying to get me to blow my top. And it worked.

AA Cafe #67

Garth and I... are the universal health care of coffee podcasting? This is sort of a rambling podcast about random tidbits. The top ten list of worst customers, your local meat market, new coffees from Cafe Imports, Cristina Garces, and Ninety Plus, a new book about Ethiopia, DoubleShot web and store changes, and our girl Shelley Olds!

AA Cafe #66

It's Newguy's first podcast. Everyone welcome Michael to the DoubleShot team. We discuss various brewing methods using the Aeropress and the theories behind them. Also, Hoffmann's blog, Geoff Watts' statement about naturals, and our position with the Colombian naturals. And a surprise phone interview with James. We're the Emily Oak of coffee podcasting. For sure.

AA Cafe #65

Garth and I are back on the mics. THIS time we don't talk about women. Hardly. We talk about peaberry coffee seeds, new coffees at the DoubleShot, Newguy at the DoubleShot, The DoubleShot's 6th Bday, SHELLEY OLDS!, Jennifer Iannolo and the Food Philosophy podcast (, Doug Zell and his blog... Man, we talked about a lot of stuff. A lot of people. But not much about ladies. LADIES! :)

AA Cafe #64

It's not that great, mostly because I recorded by myself. But I wanted to talk about Haiti and some other stuff. Listen and then email me.
