Season 1, Episode 22: Thanksgiving Feast Plans & Brutally Honest Breville Appliance Reviews

By Oaks The Coffee Guy
Episode Summary:
In this podcast episode, I reflect on my Thanksgiving plans including smoking a turkey breast and finding ribeye roasts on sale. I provide an update on my French press coffee journey and experimenting with dialing in the right taste. A decent portion of time is spent critiquing Breville products ranging from coffee makers to toaster ovens to an espresso machine. I share my frustrations with the lack of durability, quick breakdowns, poor customer service, and expensive repair costs that have led me to no longer trust or purchase Breville appliances going forward. However, I give praise to my Breville panini press that has held up well over time.

Throughout the podcast, I aim to deliver honest takes without overhyping products and set reasonable expectations. Listeners will learn about my preferences when it comes to fruit, coffee, and meat. I also provide some behind-the-scenes perspectives on video production versus podcasting and factors that influence how creators present information to their audiences. This transparency and authenticity is meant to build trust and relatability with listeners.
