Podcast #54: Trish's Layover

When Zoka's Director of Coffee, Trish Skeie, gets stuck in Washington DC en route to Brazil, what do you do? Answer: break out the microphones! Discussion topics: Why is Trish on the show, news and notes, skate board decks are cool, live audio from the NWRBC awards ceremony, recapping the SERBC, Portafilter 2007, the Celebrity-Barista discussion, and a little five dollar wager. Imagine that: another 2-plus hour podcast.

2 hours 15 minutes and 8 seconds
MP3 format, 61.9 MB
Now LEVELATED (an advanced podcast audio compression technology which should, hopefully, resolve our level issues... thanks for everyone's patience, and let us know how the show sounds to you).

After ONE YEAR, I am extremely happy to announce that Hines Public Market Coffee is alive once more. We FINALLY have new home. We are currently on Granville Island, in Vancouver, B.C. in an existing roastery called Origins . We decided to keep that name on the existing roastery and make it the organic line of HPMC Canada, Ltd. I'm excited and exhausted, but loving every second. I finally get to continue my roasting apprenticeship (right now on an old peanut roaster from 1916) and will get to play with other different roasters, espresso machines, and other great toys. My favorite part is getting to drink the coffee I've been missing for a year.

My deepest gratitude to Duane and the Stumptown roasters, JJ Bean, and 49th Parallel who put up with Sanders and myself borrowing their spaces while we were in limbo. We could not have existed this past year without your help and I am grateful to have people like you in this industry....and, thank you John Sanders for giving me a chance.

Last, but not least, a great big thanks to all who have supported us in the past and those that continue to support us. COME VISIT US IN B.C.

Bronwen =)
