Season 1, Episode 47: Coffee Connects My Misanthropic Self to Humanity

By Oaks The Coffee Guy
Episode Summary:
In this episode, I discuss my misanthropic tendencies and how coffee gives me an opportunity to connect with people. As an introvert who enjoys solitary hobbies, I admit I'm not always comfortable around others. However, coffee can bring people together and helps create a sense of community. I share how sitting down for coffee helps me learn about others in an authentic way without pretense. My favorite part of coffee is the conversations and connections it facilitates. Listeners will gain insight into how coffee can be a bridge between people despite differences.

I also provide updates on my Amazon product listings, YouTube channel progress, and gearing up my studio. Reflecting on a business's changing product formulas leads me to examine the balance of sweetness versus acidity in coffee and the importance of giving feedback to companies. I recount my frustration with a magnesium supplement that has gradually become cloyingly sweet. Just as coffee needs the right blend of flavors to avoid being one-note, I explain that customers benefit when brands listen if a recipe veers off course. Even in a short casual episode with pet distractions, the joy of coffee always comes back to bringing people together.
