Yesterday, we had the chance to Coffee Ambush the great folks at HowStuffWorks, also home to the famous "Stuff You Should Know" Podcast with Chuck and Josh. Chuck visited with us at the Batdorf Atlanta Roastery a couple of weeks ago, and I returned the favor by Ambushing the staff there with coffee. I led them through a Coffee 101, from where coffee comes from, where it's grown, to how it's processed and how that affects the taste of coffees, concluding with a brewing of a coffee from Central America (Batdorf & Bronson's Guatemala Finca El Valle), and Africa (Batdorf & Bronson's new Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Kochere.) Being fans of the site and podcasts, it was a real treat to get to see and meet the behind the scenes folks who create this great stuff on a daily basis.
Assisting me this Ambush was Eric Zuniga, and Paul Hile.
Music by Atlanta band, Quiet Hounds, from their new album "Megaphona." quiethounds.com
