We talk about the importance of water for brewing, regional water preferences, and how their product can help equalize such an important factor like water.

Episode 57 - KRUVE
58:29Grind size remains one of the most challenging and inconsistently communicated aspects of coffee brewing. Despite having a consistent language to communicate temperature, water chemistry, brew ratios, etc. it's often frustrating to nail down a repeatable grind size and share that information with others. Today we're joined by Karol and Adam Krupa from KRUVE to talk about how their coffee sifter solves that problem, allowing every cup to taste its best. They explain how the KRUVE came to be, who it's best suited for, and some tips and tricks to getting the most out of it. FOR OUR LISTENERS! Save 10% off through August using IBREW10 on KRUVE's store!

Episode 54 - The Intersectionality Panel
1:23:56At the Global Coffee Expo in Seattle, we had the opportunity to sit in on a truly inspirational panel called "Intersectionality, Building Influence, and Changing Power Structures" moderated by Michelle Johnson of The Chocolate Barista & Tracy Ging, co-founder of the Coffeewoman. The panel was focussed on gender, race, and inequality, and how to remove barriers and foster change within the coffee industry. On the next episode, we'll talk more with Michelle Johnson, so stay tuned! Panel's Description While topics of gender have accelerated in the past couple of years, those discussions have almost exclusively centered on white women. The lack of intersectionality hinders our ability to achieve true diversity and inclusion. The fact is, women of color and those who identify outside of the CIS-normative, experience a unique set of challenges that often go unheard. This panel aims to elevate those perspectives while discussing how to remove barriers, build influence, and foster the change needed for greater representation and a more collaborative, compassionate and creative approach within the coffee industry.
