We're back with another episode of the Coffee Sprudgecast, a coffee podcast hosted by Sprudge co-founder Jordan Michelman and Zachary Carlsen. On this week's episode we're hyped for the 2017 World Barista Championship, kicking off Thursday November 9th from CafeShow in Seoul, South Korea. Sprudge Media Network will be covering all the action live from WBC over on Sprudge Live, our companion site dedicated to the wide world of coffee sports.
Sprudge Live launched in 2014 as a hub for competitive coffee coverage, and has grown into a globe-spanning ESPN of sorts for those who love coffee competitions. That's where all of our 2017 WBC coverage lives, but just time for Seoul the site has an exciting new revamp, and has grown to include new kinds of coffee competition coverage around the world, including the Coffee Masters tournament and local competitions from a coffee community near you. We're also going to be publishing content there about why we love competitions, what they mean, how they can do better, and where they can go next—cultural commentary from the world of competitive coffee. Cruise over to the all-new Sprudge Live and check it out, we've got some beautiful content waiting for you there!
Elsewhere on the show our founders try the new Coffee Tonic from Slingshot Coffee Co. and Jack Rudy Cocktail Co., slug down a little Icelandic coffee porter from Einstok Beer, talk through the news of the day with our news anchor Robyn Brems, look forward to a little chicken and beer party with Cafe Imports and Namusairo Coffee in Seoul, and talk about a highly worth your time GoFundMe page from Cafe Communion in Puerto Rico. All this and much more on this week's episode of the Coffee Sprudgecast. Thanks for listening!
