Season 1, Episode 62: The Craft Coffee Roaster's Insightful Philosophy

By Oaks The Coffee Guy
Episode Summary:
In this casual, conversational episode, I engage in a freeform discussion touching on various coffee-related topics. I share details about an accidental "pre-sale" experience where I offered free coffee and received orders before roasting, highlighting the efficiency of that model. I also explore the idea of relinquishing control over how people ultimately brew their coffee, accepting that variables like individual preferences and circumstances are out of my hands as the roaster.

I contemplate the role of water quality in brewing, sharing an experiment using third wave water that seemed to enhance perceived sweetness. Throughout, I adopt a relaxed, introspective tone, allowing thoughts to meander from technical considerations to deeper ruminations on honesty, managing expectations, and focusing my efforts on what I can control in the coffee journey. Listeners can expect an insightful dive into the philosophy and human elements behind my craft coffee roasting.
