Brian Renshaw

This week Brian sits down to talk with Alex Wallace, who is a barista at The Mixer in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Alex has an uncanny ability to describe and talk about coffee in ways that few do. I always love reading about the different coffees he is trying and how he describes each one. In our conversation we take the deep dive into tasting notes and how to better develop your palate, how he talks with customers about brewing coffee at home, and his entry way into the world of tea. We talked about a variety of topics and you can always find links to everything we mention in the show notes.
