Geoff Woodley: Better Sample Roasting with IKAWA’s New App
Geoff Woodley is a Product & Marketing Manager at IKAWA. He started his career in coffee as a first employee of Detour Coffee Roasters in Hamilton, Canada over 9 years ago. Recently, he has been involved in re-designing the IKAWA's mobile app, and we discussed that in the second part of the interview. In the beginning, we talk about the difference between European and Canadian coffee scene, basic principles of roasting and sample roasting and how IKAWA influenced a daily work of many speciality coffee roasters around the world. “Essentially what they are doing is just getting to know the coffee and saying is it something that I want for my business?“Geoff about sample roasting Geoff Woodley doing a presentation on roasting at IKAWA.

Jessie May Peters: What Does The Future Hold for Baristas?
Jessie May Peters worked many years as a barista before turning her career into green coffee importing. She has always been community-focused, volunteering at many speciality coffee events, which eventually lead her to become a chair of Barista Guild in 2019. We talked about challenging times for baristas who found themselves without their daily routine in the coffee shops and eventually without a job. Jessie shared ideas on how baristas can use their free time to prepare for the future and leave the quarantine with an improved skill set. We also talked about the Barista Guild's activities and future projects. “Coffee may become less of a regular occurrence for people in their day to day life, but it will become like a small luxury and something that is important for people.” Jessie May Peters Photo: Specialty Coffee Association/Barista Guild Listen to the podcast with Jessie May Peters: If you like the European Coffee Trip podcast and don't want to miss the next episode, please subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher, Overcast or Spotify.

Michal is a founder of Rebelbean, a speciality coffee roastery based in Brno, Czech Republic. Working in the hospitality business for a decade, Michal is has been involved in many areas of the coffee business, and since I know him as a creative and entrepreneurial guy, so I wanted to discuss all the challenges of the current COVID-19 situation.

What can you do if your revenue drops by 80% overnight?

Gwilym Davies: I Wanted To Be Good At Something
Gwilym Davies is the World Barista Champion 2009. He runs his training centre at Jílové u Prahy, a little town close to Prague, the Czech Republic. Even though his career as a competition barista lasted only three months, he has remained involved as a certified judge until this day. Gwilym is known as a pioneer of the speciality coffee in London and mainly as a co-founder of Prufrock Coffee together with his longtime friend Jeremy Challender. This podcast is the original interview we filmed in 2015 2014 in V Melounovém cukru in Brno during the Brno Coffee Week festival. Without any expectations, we turned the camera on and recorded, asked the first question and Gwilym revealed many of the stories he has not shared before. People told us nobody would watch such a long video on the internet but it reached over 10 000 views, and many people told us they watched it several times. We got a chance to work with Gwilym on a series of free educational videos for baristas. We picked some of the most common mistakes baristas to make behind the bar, and Gwilym explained, in a few minutes, how to fix them and how anyone can make their life easier when making coffee at home, but mostly at a cafe.
