Coffee is a very important part of my day.

One of the first things I do in the morning is ground fresh coffee beans, setup my aeropress, and push out a good cup of coffee. Then if time allows, I sit outside, stare at the garden (or open up YouTube), and just sit down to relax. It’s my necessary calm before the storm of every day life.

You can imagine what a treat it was to have Nathaniel Soque of Linear Coffee Roasters in the podcast. There’s nothing I love more than talking shop about a topic I love. And, wow, talk shop we did! Not only did we dive deep into what makes a good cup of coffee, but we examine the precision and meticulousness needed to run a top quality cafe. This conversation changed the way I make coffee, and gave me insight of what it might be like to open up my future coffee shop (retirement plans). We get into the origins of Linear Coffee Roasters, their future plans, and talk about Cebu’s coffee culture.

Podcasts are typically listened to while doing something else, like driving, working, or cooking. For this one, I urge you to listen to it over a cup of good coffee. You’ll get a better sense of just what went into that cup.

Enjoy this episode of Zerothreetwo Conversations with Nathaniel Soque.
