033: Reggie Elliott Is Up With Coffee

A few weeks ago, we got in a Twitter debate with Reggie, and we all came together to discuss cultural appropriation (spoiler alert: he's right we were wrong), the responsibility of leaders in the coffee industry, and what's so special about the D.C. coffee scene. Reggie is the Coffee Director at A Rake's Progress and The Cup We All Race 4, and he talks about Sweden, his beginnings at Murky Coffee, and the importance of representation through DMV Coffee. We also laugh a little and talk about astrology and babies because duh.
