‘It Was a Keurig Hit and Run’
Eric Rauch went to Coffee Fest Atlanta and lived to tell the tale. Joe and Eric discuss ‘Keurig snobbery,’ the future of coffee roasting, and Eric’s experience with coffee over the years.
Highlights and Show Notes
Eric and Joe discuss Eric’s trip to Coffee Fest in Atlanta last weekend. Along the way, a wide array of other coffee enthusiast subjects are raised, like decaf versus regular, Sanka, Seattle’s Best, and coffee roaster culture. The guys end on a ‘finishing note’ discussing Keurig coffee-makers, Green Mountain Coffee, and the present problems K-cups face in the market.
