Colin Harmon and Stephen Leighton Talk Coffee and host live talks from people in the coffee community.

No. 90

October 6, 2017

This week, we’re joined for an extra special edition of our regularly scheduled podcast by none-other-than Thompson Owen of Oakland’s Sweet Maria’s and The Coffee Shrub. A long-time hero and primary coffee inspiration of our Stephen, Thompson first started working at a coffee counter in 1985 before going on open what is now the online hub of the home roasting community.

Steve and Thompson cover lots over the hour of No. 90: the start of Sweet Marias (and subsequently of Hasbean), Bay Area coffee, origin photography and travel, and some plain ol’ reminiscing.
