Solar-roasted coffee

This episode features a few items about coffee. It opens up with an update on fair trade coffee in Ethiopia, namely Starbucks vs Ethiopia. Next, an organic coffee soda, JavaPop…available in mocha, hazelnut, caramel, vanilla, and espresso. I typically haven’t enjoyed these types of drinks but am always hoping to be surprised. Hopefully it won’t be too hard to locate as they operate out of Vermont. Finally, the most interesting item was a few snapshots of the operations at Solar Roast Coffee. They’re actually utilizing a 10 foot solar array to heat up a drum roaster! Veeery interesting.
