(See this episode as a video or listen as a podcast below)
We asked for questions for this project, and you sent them …hard ones! Thanks! In this first Episode 1, there are 4 questions :

1: How to find the right coffee … but are they talking about the green beans or how it’s brewed? I’m not sure
2: Anaerobic A key part of the wet process of coffee fruit is overnight fermentation, to break down the fruit (mucilage) layer that tenaciously clings to the coffee seed, so it can be washed off. Fermentation must More: Why don’t we offer this coffee? We will soon … but its complicated, and is this basically a way to flavor coffee? Especially coffee that isn’t that great as is? Just asking!
