— Boss Barista is first and foremost a feminist coffee podcast. We're an award-winning show hosted by Jasper Wilde and Ashley Rodriguez. We highlight the voices of those marginalized and overlooked in the coffee industry. Take a listen!


Improve Your Company Culture

— Do you have a problem with turnover? Are employees complaining about unfair advantages? Is the language of your company handbooks isolating or exclusionary? We can help with that. We've talked to and learned from industry professionals of all backgrounds, and we can advise you on how to create an environment that is just, fair, and promotes talent amongst your entire staff. Along with podcasting about these topics, we also write about them — check that out here.
