Jools' investigation into this elusive coffee will leave your taste buds clamouring for the sweet and fruity notes of Blue Mountain Coffee… When was the last time you encountered Jamaican coffee in your favourite cafe? Chances are, unless you frequent the high-end establishments of Mayfair (or happen to be royalty), the answer may well be "never."In this special episode, Jools takes Scott on a poignant personal journey into the land of her paternal heritage while casting light on Jamaican coffee's fascinating and disturbing past.Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee was once considered the cream of the coffee crop, but plummeting production beneath an ominous veil of secrecy has left the country's coffee industry in crisis.Along the way, the author of "The Mother of Us All", Karla Gottlieb, paints a picture of a paradise island invaded by colonialists and the ingenious fightback by a cunning queen. Smith's Coffee's Colin Smith explains the historical quirks that have led to most Jamaican coffee being sold to Japan. Dominic Wyndham-Gittens of Wyndhams Coffee Roasters in Barbados points the finger at the Jamaican coffee industry's painful decline. And Marshalee Valentine, President of JAWiC, offers a glimpse of hope for some green shoots of recovery.Content Warning: This episode contains mentions/descriptions of slavery and violence against enslaved people that can be disturbing or triggering.— Join our Patreon to support the show! https://bit.ly/3vrispx Jamaican Women in Coffee: https://bit.ly/3tBFBpLKarla Gottlieb book, “Queen Nanny: The Mother of Us All” - https://bit.ly/3x4N95pLisa Hanna’s article on the state of the Jamaican coffee industry: https://bit.ly/39sCsSbVideo of a Jamaican coffee farmer discussing the state of the industry : https://bit.ly/3NODsPFTaino Calling Song - https://bit.ly/3x5LlKxSmith’s Coffee - https://bit.ly/3akAfs8HR Higgins Instagram (https://bit.ly/3yRqY4T)Wyndham’s Coffee - https://bit.ly/3MXzcglFind your perfect roast with the Ikawa Home: https://bit.ly/3IdYVPc Visiting Bristol?

Next time you set about making your morning coffee, take a moment to peruse the info on your bag of beans. What do you notice? The variety of beans? Flavour notes? Technical details on where the coffee was grown? They're not so different from the sort of blurb you might find on the back of a wine bottle in many ways. And that’s intentional. Specialty coffee has taken a lot from the world of wine. But could the increasing overlaps be a problem for coffee farmers — or even dangerous?In this episode, Scott and Jools join forces with coffee processing specialist and former winemaker Lucia Solis from the Making Coffee podcast to dive deeper into where our coffee comes from and what (if anything) wine's got to do with it.Lucia talks to coffee producer Karla Boza from the Finca San Antonio Amatepec coffee farm in El Salvador and vintner Todd Kohn from the Wayfarer Vineyard in California to shed some light on the techniques behind picking, transporting and processing their precious produce. Take a sip on this (soon-to-be-a-good) vintage episode to pique your curiosity about how coffee and wine are made, and why it matters.—Join our Patreon to support the show! https://bit.ly/3vrispx Learn more about coffee and wine growing with Lucia Solis on her Making Coffee podcast: https://bit.ly/3z7dJ0j Follow Karla Boza’s farm (https://bit.ly/3M0msUO) and Todd’s winery (https://bit.ly/3PPBRKI) on Instagram Find your perfect roast with the Ikawa Home: https://bit.ly/3IdYVPc Visiting Edinburgh?

Ever noticed how your “carbon neutral” coffee tickles the taste buds just that little bit more than your bog standard brew?From coffee producers to cafes, the industry is falling over itself to show us how much it cares about the future of our planet. But all is not always quite as it seems… So in this episode we’re delving into the murky world of “greenwashing.” What is it? What’s being done about it? And with so much else going on in the world, is it really that big of a deal?To help guide us through all the greenwashing grey areas, Jools and Scott are joined by environmental journalist David Burrows who goes in search of elephants and tigers in the cafes of Edinburgh. Miles Lockwood from the Advertising Standards Authority reveals how some alternative milk companies have been found to be greenwashing.

Dear listener, beware! When it comes to buying coffee-making gear, ‘upgrade-itis’ is real. And it’s been hitting the pockets of coffee lovers everywhere. Early symptoms include questioning whether to stick or twist, bewilderment at the range of choice, and uncertainty if spending those extra pounds on your kit can be tasted in your morning cup. But, dear listers, fear not — because help is at hand. In this episode, Jools figures out where that golden sweet spot is when buying grinders, espresso machines and filter coffee set ups. Are the savings from hand grinding beans worth the elbow grease? Can you really get a machine to make quality espresso for less than £300? And what’s the point of an automatic filter brewer? Coffee expert and Youtuber Lance Hedrick dials in from the Onyx Coffee Lab in Arkansas, USA, to help Jools and Scott identify the issues of diminishing returns.So roll up your sleeve as we help you stave off that expensive ‘upgrade-itis’ before it’s too late! —Join our Patreon to support the show and win a free premium hand grinder! https://bit.ly/3vrispx Check out Lance’s videos on Youtube - Modding espresso machines with PID sensors: https://bit.ly/3qokWUqUpgrading burrs sets in your grinders: https://bit.ly/3ipPvENListen to our previous AIC about buying an espresso machine: https://bit.ly/369AogpFollow Lance Hedrick (https://bit.ly/351RcW2) and the Jester’s Tower (https://bit.ly/3N7wXY4) on Instagram.

Close your eyes, and imagine taking a sip of thick espresso. What flavours would you hope are dancing on your tongue? Dark chocolate? Caramel? How about lemon? What if the coffee is so acidic, you may as well be sucking on lemon juice? This acidity is often the result of roasting a coffee quite lightly, and specialty coffee loves this acidity. But the weird thing is specialty coffee isn't obsessed with acidity because they necessarily enjoy acidic flavours. It goes waaaaaay deeper. So deep in fact it's caused massive Twitter brawls where a celebrity food columnist even sparred with a gang of self-proclaimed coffee punks. Scott takes Jools on a coffee roasting journey, starting at the darker times in coffee, and how it evolved into the light roasts of today by speaking with Sonja Bjork Grant (Icelandic roaster and World Barista Judge) and Nick Mabey (co-owner of Assembly Coffee Roasters).At the end, we ask the question: were the coffee punks right to be so focused on lightly roasted coffee? —Join our Patreon to support the show: https://bit.ly/3vrispx Follow Nick Mabey (https://bit.ly/3Mwpu4m), Assembly Coffee (https://bit.ly/3sM618c), Sonja Bjork Grant (https://bit.ly/3tFMqpz), Jakub Klucznik (https://bit.ly/3Knl3Hh) and Saint Espresso (https://bit.ly/3IPaxsc) on Instagram.Learn more about the Siemens EQ700 fully automatic espresso machine: https://bit.ly/3Ia8yy5Find your perfect roast with the Ikawa Home: https://bit.ly/3IdYVPcJoin us at the London Coffee Festival!

Busting Coffee Myths

Busting Coffee Myths

2022-02-2332:24

Dear Listener... We asked what YOU wanted to hear when we returned, and we LISTENED... so we're kicking off Series Three by busting some coffee myths! The coffee world is absolutely filled with fables! Although we couldn't smash them all, the triple-threat of Scott, Jools and James take on the top three myths and separate the bean from the chaff to bring you the truth! Is the fridge the best place to store your coffee? Jools gets on the line to Samo Smrke - an actual Coffee Scientist - to find out if that's fact or fiction. Scott sniffs out the truth to discover if coffee has more flavour and aroma compounds than wine and chats to 2017 World Barista Champion Dale Harris - whose whole winning routine is based around sensory analysis! James drills deep into the tale of coffee being the second most traded commodity in the world after oil, and gets the lowdown from Mark Pendergrast - best-selling author of Uncommon Grounds: The History of Coffee and How It Transformed Our World.

Sri Lankan coffee has delicious notes of chocolate and caramel. But it’s basically impossible to find, and we’re going to bet you’ve never drank it. But why is Sri Lankan coffee so hard to find? It shouldn’t be because Sri Lanka has the perfect climate to grow coffee, and was once one of the biggest coffee growing countries in the world. But Sri Lanka was the victim of an ecological ticking time bomb. And this bomb is still ticking, and is going to explode again. Producer man James takes Scott and Jools on an adventure back in time, across Ethiopia, Yemen, Sri Lanka to trace the origins of this ticking bomb, and what it’s going to take to defuse it. —Come join our Patreon Community to be entered into a draw to taste Sri Lankan coffee roasted by Hansa Coffee: https://bit.ly/3vrispx Read Stuart McCook’s excellent book, Coffee Is Not Forever: https://bit.ly/3320robAnd follow his Instagram: https://bit.ly/3sJ2OVIFollow Hansa Coffee on Instagram: https://bit.ly/3sOyLfrListen to James’ stories about El Salvador on his Filter Stories channel: https://spoti.fi/3Lcnuhg Help other people find the show by leaving a rating on Spotify: https://spoti.fi/3JYduHY Help others find the show by creating a screengrab of this episode on your podcast player and sharing it on your Instagram stories.

Picture this: you're at the supermarket, perusing the wine aisle (after checking out the coffee one, of course), trying to choose between a £8 Spanish Rioja and a £10 French Merlot. Sound familiar?! In this episode, we’re decanting the secrets of the wine world with Susie and Peter, creators of the Wine Blast podcast! Scott and Jools don’t know much about wine but realise their biggest questions about it are the same ones they get about coffee. I.e. is really expensive wine is worth it? How much cash should you splash to get the tastiest tipple without breaking the bank? And of course… what's the best way to store wine?! Susie and Peter tell all!However, a simple wine tasting could never be enough for Scott and Jools. Instead, they throw the gastronomy gauntlet down as they challenge the Masters of Wine to tell the difference between cheap coffee and the really good stuff. But Susie and Peter return the battle, testing our hosts' pallets with super expensive wine and supermarket plonk!

But worry not! In this episode, we’re helping you figure out which coffee to buy and, more importantly, where! (Hint: it ain’t the supermarket). Jools speaks to Andrew Pautler of Pull and Pour Coffee to get the basics squared away: blend or single origin? Supermarket, online or in a cafe?

Every high street now has at least five great looking coffee shops. But chances are only one or two actually make a truly great coffee. But how are you supposed to know which without trying them all out first?In this episode Scott, Jools and James are quite literally putting in the work to help you understand how to identify a good coffee shop, and hack your way to café nirvana! Self-crowned King of Caffeine Scott has what he believes is the ultimate hit-list of what to look for when trying out a new place for the first time: 1) beans 2) milk and 3) service. Scott swears by this framework, but Jools and James aren't going to just take his word for it. So where better than a mystery tour of East London to see just how well Scott’s framework holds up?Will our favourite Coffee Snob come out on top or will Scott have to eat (or should that be drink) his words on this one?! ------------------Come join our Patreon Community to support the show: https://bit.ly/3vrispx Discover how much CO2 is produced in each litre of Oatly compared to cow's milk: http://bit.ly/3aidSA3Help other people find the show by leaving a review on Apple Podcasts: http://apple.co/39iTRdkFollow us on Instagram!Scott Bentley / Caffeine Magazine: https://bit.ly/3oijQ91Jools Walker / Lady Velo: http://bit.ly/39VRGewJames Harper / Filter Stories: https://bit.ly/2Mlkk0O
Pods promise the seductive smoothness of an espresso, just minus the faff! But is this for real? And should you buy a pod machine for your relatives this Christmas?We look at the case for pods from every possible angle. We cut them up, time them, try to recycle them and taste them!Jools is open to the idea of pods, but can she convince Scott, the planet’s biggest pod-hater, that pods might actually have a place in our kitchens?To help settle the bickering, James speaks to Nathan McCarley-O'Neill (Assistant Food and Beverage Director and co-author of Claridge's The Cocktail Book) and carries out a taste-test experiment between a pulled shot vs pod coffee. We pick up the phone with sustainability journalist David Burrows and try to untangle the massive recycling mess us poor consumers face every time we puncture one of these small capsules.

We're back, and our series two opener asks a very bold question: is my coffee killing me?!For personal reasons (discussed in this episode*), Jools has longed to find an answer to this. She takes Scott on a journey which ventures deep into the science, history and psychology of coffee consumption. We get the basics on the science by speaking with Dr Charlotte Mills, Lecturer in Nutritional Sciences at the University of Reading. But, it opens up a bigger question: why does coffee get so much hate?We hop on the line with Professor Jonathan Morris, Research Professor in Modern History at the University of Hertfordshire, to learn the origins of anti-coffee marketing.But why were these marketing gimmicks so effective? We hear from Chartered Psychologist Kimberley Wilson, author and Governor of the Tavistock & Portman NHS Mental Health Trust. Thankfully, she leaves us with a sane and healthy way to approach nutrition and coffee! *Trigger Warning: this episode includes discussions on disordered eating, thoughts and behaviours.Discover how much CO2 is produced in each liter of Oatly compared to cow's milk: http://bit.ly/3aidSA3Help other people find the show by leaving a review on Apple Podcasts: http://apple.co/39iTRdkHow much coffee do you drink a day?
