Coffee Jam Podcast

In the tradition of coffee houses in England in the 17th century, the Coffee Jam podcast is a meeting place to discuss news and ideas. We aim to create a community based around chatting over a nice cup of coffee.

We’ll be talking about third-wave coffee and coffee culture, careers and job searching, creativity, diversity and inclusion, and more. We’ll have guests join us to chat about our topics and interview interesting people about “how they found their jam.”


3. When Work Goes Bad: Workplace Trauma, Cattle Wrangling, and Terrible Bosses – Part One

Part 1 of 2 of our discussion on toxic workplaces. In this episode, we get personal and tell stories about the poisonous places we’ve worked at and their impact on us.

First, Jenn wows us with her coffee curating skills; she knows more about Jamie’s tastes in coffee than Jamie does. And later, Jamie tells a story from her travel memoir about her ex-boss in the Australian outback who was so bad she almost killed people.

We want to hear from you! Tell us your bad boss and horrible job stories. Ask Jenn anything about coffee. Tell us what you think of the podcast.

Take Jenn’s coffee quiz.

2. Steeped in Culture: The Importance of Ceremonies, Conversations, and Community

Pour yourself a cup of joe and join us as we sip our way through Ethiopia. Jenn gives us a masterclass on tasting with three Ethiopian coffees, Jamie recounts her experiences travelling in Ethiopia and partaking in coffee ceremonies, and we talk about monkeys and why they can’t be trusted… and more!

Check out Jenn’s monthly feature coffees at The Queen Bean.

1. The Intersection of Dolphin Dissections, Duels, and Coffee Culture

What does Isaac Newton dissecting a dolphin have to do with coffee?
