episode 85 - the future of coffee brewing

This episode of AA Cafe is a little different. My editing went a bit off from normal. Mark and I discuss the future of coffee brewing, along with a little reminisce of our personal coffee histories. DoubleShot baristas chime in with their ideas for the coffee brewer of the future.

The Freshness Test! Brian and Mark discuss coffee freshness with some audio of Michael Sivetz speaking at an SCAA conference, and Miguel Wickert explaining a fool-proof way to test and see if your coffee is fresh. Thanks also to Ann Money from the Oklahoma Aquarium for telling us about jellyfish. All music is courtesy of Brian Haas of Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey.

Check out these videos shot by Miguel Wickert during his Coffee Freshness Experiments. Notice the blooming (like a jellyfish), and the stale coffee not blooming (like a sieve).
