Today we got to hang out with Gill and Barbara Johnston – the freshness fanatics at Nuanz Coffee Roasters. In addition to learning more about them and the business of coffee and tea, we got to sample some of the Sumatra Roast (did you know a small spoon of sugar brings the taste out?) and some amazing teas, including a Turmeric & Ginger tea. Nuanz Coffees and Teas are available at Savory Market and numerous restaurants on the island.
An important note about this episode: our recording engineer (Christy) encountered multiple issues during today’s recording including SD cards that couldn’t be read. We lost some of the interview about the coffees but then were able to finish it up on video.
To start off our 2018 season, we decided to turn the tables and invite in a guest host, Jack Warren – host of Top Coach Podcast (and full disclosure – Tarah’s dad). Jack will be interviewing us about the podcast, why it came to be, our favorite moments and where we see it going.
