We Are Not Snobby Coffee Drinkers

This week, I launched the Top Brew site and podcast. Yesterday, we released episode #1: We Are Not Snobby Coffee Drinkers. And today, we published the first in a series of written interviews I call “brew rituals.”

In this episode, Eric Rauch and I discussed the big picture of coffee culture, and how much we enjoy coffee from our own unique tastes and experiences. We also discussed the latest trend of the craft coffee market.

I want to mention that I thought very long and hard about the length of our podcast. We could easily discuss coffee and everything about it for more than an hour per episode, but we felt it was better to give our listeners shorter episodes that they could easily share with friends and family.

I have introduced many good podcasts to people over the years, and the response I hear the most often is, “How long is it? More than an hour?! Forget it.…” So, for everyone’s sake, Top Brew is mindfully planned and recorded in an attempt to keep each episode between 25 - 35 minutes.

I also want to say a special thanks to our first sponsor. Thrasher Coffee is a fine establishment. Eric works there, and it is for that reason, and our great friendship, that I wanted him to be my co-host. Eric roasts the beans I like most, because they are so fresh (roasted-to-order). I couldn’t be happier than to tell you about Thrasher, and recommend them to you. If you like tasty, fresh coffee beans, then you will love Thrasher.

Let me know on Twitter how you like the podcast.
