Opportunities for specialty coffee still abound in certain areas of the American South. With those opportunities comes challenges of communicating coffee in a way that both meets people where they are, and helps open them up to new experiences that expand their enjoyment. Today we are talking with someone who has not only been communicating to his customers through the coffee he roasts, but also through a podcast designed to be an entertaining AND educational. We are chatting with Kenneth Thomas of Umble Coffee!
Kenneth Thomas is host of the very popular Coffee 101 podcast and interviews coffee experts weekly from around the world. He is owner and head roaster at Umble Coffee Co, an online and wholesale coffee company. Kenneth and Umble Coffee have been ranked as one of the top specialty coffee roasters in the United States consistently for the last several years. He is also a physician and chemical engineer - both of which lend expertise to Umble’s mission of sourcing and roasting the best coffees from around the world in a way that optimizes for taste quality and health.
In my conversation with Kenneth we will cover how his own curiosity sparked his obsession and business, how he crafts customer service through roasting excellent coffee in an approachable way, and the importance of always learning and providing opportunities to learn for himself, his customers, and listeners.
