It's our second podcast in recent memory! Does this mean the CoffeeGeek Podcast really is back? Could be! We'll have a great interview with Madcap Coffee's Trevor Corlett for the bulk of this podcast, but will also be talking in depth about the charitable organization Coffee Kids and how it had to shut its doors for 2015, a very sad event.
