Podcast No. 33: Alejandro Martinez, Guest

Postby Tamper Tantrum » Mon Jul 27, 2015 2:37 pm

This week, we step away from the hustle and bustle of all the fun happening with the specialty coffee community on the interwebs, turning our attention to something we should all focus on a bit more: understanding what happens at origin. With the help of good friend Alejandro Martinez of Finca Argentina in El Salvador, we take a look at what happens on the farm seasonally, what changes you might see on a farm that sells “specialty” vs. “commodity”, and how things are changing. Also covered: the ideal relationship between a farmer and a buyer, the impact of leaf rust on El Salvador, and biodynamic gnomes (or why you maybe shouldn’t stay at Ale’s house alone).

Ale had a slight complication with his microphone around 46 minutes in to recording, but just bear with us, it fixes itself within the minute. Baristas who talk about origin in competition without actually ever having been there: this podcast’s for you!
