On this week’s podcast, we are joined by a long-time listener and one of our CoLab: Prague speakers: the CEO of Drop Coffee, Joanna Alm. Episode No. 41 (not the 41st) features a recap of all things Cup North, a discussion of recent changes at Drop, the Swedish/Nordic specialty coffee scene, and last week’s Nordic Roasters Forum.

Also covered: a new metaphor for coffee roasting, a beginners guide to the Swedish language*, the burgeoning European Roaster’s Guild, and a few thoughts on why we’ll still be in Paris this week for Barista Guild of Europe’s CoLab event.

*Including the ever-important phrase, “skölpaddan bär en gul hatt.”
