The trend toward locally sourced food is reflected in produce aisles at grocery stores, menus in restaurants and vendors at farmer’s markets. But what about our coffee pots? Coffee is a must-have for so many in the D.C. region, yet truly local coffee is not a possibility. Kojo talks to a local coffee roaster and a “green” coffee supplier about how the beloved beverage is being reimagined as a local product, even though its origins remain distant.

Guests

  • Joel Finkelstein Owner, Roaster, Qualia Coffee (Washington, D.C.)
  • Daniel Velasquez Green coffee sourcer; owner, Campesino Specialty Coffee
  • Nony Dutton Deputy Director of Markets
