Slate’s ‘Working’ Podcast Featuring the RoastMonkey

Running a coffee shop sounds pretty straightforward, right? Wrong. In the first episode of this season of Working, Slate’s Rachel E.

Finkelstein talks about his transition from home brewer to local business owner, how little his customers know about where their coffee comes from, and why maybe that’s OK. Then, he takes us behind the scenes of the roasting process and shares his conversion from caffeine-injecting health care journalist to single-origin coffee connoisseur.
