We hate to break it to you: the rumours aren’t true. Despite the fact that they haven’t been on a podcast together since No. 35, Colin and Steve haven’t actually had a massive bust-up—their schedules have just been at odds. Episode 42.5* sees them finally reunited, as they quickly catch up on all that happened during their time apart– New Zealand & Australia, Host, Manchester, Paris, new purchases—whilst expanding on more important ideas and questions plaguing the specialty coffee community today.

Among these are: expectations vs. expertise, Colin’s terrible affliction (“resting disinterested face”), how to accidentally electrocute your employees, napkins vs. brownies, “fuck cupping”, workflow, and more. *Don’t mention the war. Or Episode 42.
