Coffee Talk Episode 2 - Fairly Traded Coffee

Episode 2 – Fairly Traded Coffee

In Episode 2 of Coffee Talk we catch up with Christopher and John, the manager and master roaster respectively at Glasgow’s Gordon Street Coffee, to discuss some different ways to prepare coffee and the ethics of fairly traded coffee.



Amongst the topics we discuss with in this episode are:

• How different coffees are prepared;

• The popularity of different coffees;

• How different coffee cultures introduce different variations;

• What trends are coming for coffee drinkers;

• The difference between Fairtrade coffee and fairly traded coffee;

• The benefit to coffee farmers of an ethical buying approach;

• The drawbacks of some fair trade schemes;


• John’s palate and how it affects the blends he produces.
