NPR Coffee Week
Morning Edition and NPR’s ‘The Salt’ teamed up this past week to celebrate everything coffee. The week was chock-full of in-depth stories, fascinating interviews, quizzes, Jerry Seinfeld, and even a Google+ Hangout with Peter Giuliano. We’ve rounded up all the stuff you may have missed and put it in one handy place. This was a pretty great week full of pretty great exposure for specialty coffee.
