Hey friends! The podcast has been off for December due to a combination of the holidays and personal stuff, but now it’s 2016 and we are so back it’s crazy. In this episode (recorded back in November) we hang out at the always-enjoyable Water Avenue Coffee and Jayc gets us into an impromptu role playing game that’s ridiculous and funny.
In this episode, we visit Seven Virtues’ new location in “The Zipper” on NE Sandy, where we talk about Case Study’s new Synesso machine, and how it has a setting for automated shots, and if that’s a good thing or not (hint: we don’t think it is).
In this episode we remain in the Overlook neighborhood and visit Naturalia Cafe, which serves Extracto beans. We talk about the nature of community and how coffeeshops shape and are shaped by it. (Apologies for the occasional loudness, it’s just the nature of an espresso machine in an echoey room.)
In this episode we take a random trip to the Overlook neighborhood to try some Stumptown brewed at Blend Coffee, and talk a bit about what it means to add labels to the coffee you’re drinking (hint: very little).
