Season 1, Episode 17: Reevaluating Brazilian Coffee: An Underrated Balanced Drinkability Baseline

By Oaks The Coffee Guy
Episode Summary:
I reflect on my thoughts on daylight savings time and how the seasonal shift to more daylight impacts my early morning routine and sense of productivity. I share updates on starting the Amazon vendor process including an upcoming video call, progress on having custom bag designs produced, and considering freezing some coffees before they sell out. A highlight of the episode involves my changed opinion on Brazilian coffee. Though I used to see it as merely diner-quality coffee without a real distinguished taste, through more coffee exploration, I've come to value Brazilian coffee's incredible versatility in blending and as an espresso. I explore why Brazilian coffee's balance and drinkability across preparations makes it foundational in my lineup of offerings.

Listeners will pick up on how I aim to be transparent about my evolving views on coffee instead of presenting fully formed expert opinions right away. I strive for a balanced yet flavorful roast profile and to grow more present and aware as I build my knowledge, and hopefully can pass lessons along to my audience in an authentic way. By tuning in, you'll understand why connections between Brazilian sports heroes and Brazilian coffee growing made me take a fresh look at an underrated classic. You'll also get a glimpse of the passion I try to bring to my coffee pursuits, whether around Formula 1 racing or examining my morning routine.
