Coffee: The World’s Drug of Choice — There’s a 98 percent chance you’re drinking coffee right now. Maybe not, sure, but coffee is ubiquitous – about 80 percent of Americans consume coffee and Brazil alone has 3 billion coffee plants. Learn all about the great black brew in this episode.
Brewing coffee is a neverending science project, according to barista Sam Penix, owner of Everyman Espresso in New York City. Grind-size, brew method, coffee beans (which are really seeds), water temperature can all affect the flavors that end up in your cup. Harold McGee, author of On Food and Cooking, explains some of the chemistry of coffee.
This is part two of two of our special coffee episode. Myke and I assemble a crack team of coffee nerds to once again opine on the dark art of making a quality cup. Joining us are Shawn Blanc, Chris Bowler, and Brett Kelly. In this episode we focus on tools, tips, best practices and more.
