Episode 8. Moka Pot Shot w/ Hannibal

February 14, 2021

Hannibal (@TheBlackBeanNYC) and I make a discovery during this Moka Pot experiment in which we compare a brew in which the espresso bed has been "tamped" to one in which it hasn't. Talk about Breaking News! We also chat about how dang hard it seems to be find coffee shops that truly makes us feel comfortable to sit and sip in.

Episode 7. French Press Hoffman Technique w/ TaTeona Hughes

February 7, 2021

TaTeona Hughes (@xtrasyrup) and I try to figure out how much a virtue patience is when it comes to the French Press brew suggested by YouTube coffee broseph, James Hoffman. We also talk about how it's about time for Black Women in coffee to feel like themselves at work. Because it's exhausting to be someone else all the time, ya know?

Episode 6. Sifting Coffee w/ Kelin Bradley

January 24, 2021

Kelin Bradley and I experiment with the effects of sifting our coffee before brewing it pour over style. How much does it affect the clarity? The experience? The TDS? The discussion on this one cannot be defined, so I'll just let you watch and enjoy and hopefully feel as though you can be apart of the conversation.

Episode 5. Aeropress Bloom Times w/ Erica Jackson

January 10, 2021

Erica Jackson (@blkcoffee4life) joins me once again to experiment with Aeropress brews. Blooming your coffee has been shown to increase its extraction in all kinds of brew methods--including immersion. But how does extending the bloom time in an Areopress affect the taste? Erica and I get similar, yet different results (again). We also talk about how we all could sometimes use some help--for work stuffs and emotional support alike.

Episode 4. Pour Over Pour Speeds w/ Marvin Duncan

January 3, 2021

In this episode, Marvin Duncan (@marvinlikescoffee) and I experiment with pour over pour speeds. We also talk about overcoming the biases set against us as Black folks, the support that the less visible yet highly active Black Coffee community can provide and more that will have even me re-watching this a few more times.

Episode 3. Cold Brew Experiment w/ Korie Pickett

December 27, 2020

Korie Pickett (@hoosierqueenkp) and I see how we feel about cold brew brewed cold and “cold brew” brewed…not so cold. We also talk about the feels of working with other folks that look like us, other entries into coffee, and the racism in customer service that we definitely do not miss. Let’s see if we can’t get caffeinated. As is clear when you look into my eyes later in the episode, I am clearly not caffeinated enough.

Episode 2. Pour Over Bloom Experiment w/ Kenzel & Tio of Three Keys Coffee

Episode 2. Pour Over Bloom Experiment w/ Kenzel & Tio of Three Keys Coffee

December 20, 2020

What happens when you take a tiny little bloom time of 30 seconds and double or quadruple it? The founders of Three Keys Coffee, Tio and Kenzel Fallen, and I endeavor to find out. We also discuss a number of things, including how the duo has used their roaster in the name of inclusion. Their coffee business is not only for the passion--it's for the culture. Also, what the hell is a peacherine? Let's find out.

You probably can't tell, but don't mind my odd(er) mannerisms and random voices in the intro. My roommates are just arguing in the background, no big deal.
