It’s time for another episode of A Better Table, a coffee podcast on the Sprudge Podcast Network where host Umeko Motoyoshi explores social, economic, and environmental sustainability.

In this episode of A Better Table, Umeko Motoyoshi interviews Gary Lambert, founder of Bright Land Coffee in Philadelphia. Gary has been featured in a couple of different contexts on Sprudge over the last year, including for his brand’s outstanding cold brew packaging design and as part of our nationwide Black-owned coffee company feature, but there’s another layer to the story that hasn’t really been told yet—Lambert started the company as a dream following a cancer diagnosis.

Learn about Lambert’s life before coffee, the growth of Bright Land Coffee in the last two years, Bright Land’s work with transparency in green sourcing, the wonders of CBD and coffee, and so much more.
