9 — Christian Hambly

In this episode, I talk to Christian Hambly, and we explore that territory seemingly always on the geek horizon: Coffee.

From espresso machines to domestic brew methods, denaturation to decaffeination, John Gruber to George Clooney, we map out pretty much the whole domain in 55 minutes. If you’re a long-standing coffee nut (‘bean’?), my ill-informed questions will infuriate you, but if, like me, you’re just setting out on this voyage, Christian’s expertise and enthusiasm will guide you to the promised land.

Since we recorded this show, I’ve bought a coffee grinder, a
Hario Ceramic Slim mill (UK affiliate link) and some beans.
