Cascara Wide

It’s time for another episode of Cascara from the Sprudge Podcast Network—a growing mixtape of podcast shows dedicated to coffee culture. Cascara, the coffee travel podcast, is hosted by Cydni Patterson.

In this episode, Patterson interviews Jake King of Atlanta, Georgia. Jake King is the co-founder of GYST Coffee Training, manager at PERC coffee in Atlanta, a competition-level barista, Sprudge Twenty honoree, and Glitter Cat alum. Patterson and King talk about how Atlanta’s coffee scene is anchored in craft, service, and opportunity. King discusses GYST and the importance of successful coffee training programs—and that investing in knowledge will always have a return.
