This juicy clip is a part of the (Recent) History Channel’s web series called Food Tech: Side Orders. From L.A.

Featuring Vivace’s David Schomer, Stumptown Seattle roaster Wolfgang Klinker, and a mustachioed co-founder Zachary Carlsen making a brief cameo. (Editors note: Was I wearing a necklace?!)
