Buy Past Crop Coffee with Baylee Engberg 
Baylee Engberg is a roaster who wants you to embrace past crop coffees. That’s still a pretty novel position—coffee is an industry that touts freshness, which means “past crop” can feel taboo. But there's an opportunity to change the narrative. Just because past crop coffees are older doesn’t mean they can’t be roasted well and still drink deliciously. Does green coffee really have to be at the peak of freshness to be enjoyed? Is it sustainable to ignore past crop coffees? And don’t roasters have the power to highlight different flavors that maximize the full potential of a past crop coffee? This episode is brought to you by Urnex.

Increasing In-Country Consumption with Vera Espíndola Rafael 
My guest today is Vera Espíndola Rafael, a development economist working within coffee-producing countries. Recently, she wrote a paper called, “A Business Case to Increase Specialty Coffee Consumption in Producing Countries.” Coffee is a good that’s grown in one country, and then is traditionally—thanks to centuries of colonialism—exported somewhere else. Globally, coffee is a $200 billion industry. Vera was struck when she found out that only 10% of that value actually goes into the economies of the countries that grew the coffee, while 90% of that $200 billion stays in consuming countries. Vera hopes to change that. This episode is brought to you by Urnex.
