170: KC Coffee Veterans Talk Industry Culture
On this episode of the Northeast Newscast, we're joined by three well-known veterans of the Kansas City coffee scene as part of the Northeast News’ Coffee Issue. Kate Blackman is an experienced coffee expert and competition judge, operations manager at Roast Ratings and independent coffee consultant and trainer; Ben Helt is the Director of Authorized Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) Trainer Program; and Marty Roe is the co-owner of Workbench Coffee Labs and Service Call. We talk coffee culture, the industry, pro tips, and even get a little technical. So grab your mug and settle in!
