Searching For The Perfect Cup Of Coffee (Rebroadcast)
Coffee. It could be argued that it's the world's favorite drink. Whether you're a caffeine addict looking for a quick fix or a bean aficionado who grinds your own for a perfect blend - a morning cup of joe is a daily habit for many of us. We'll examine the ins and outs of coffee in search of "the perfect cup" - from different roasts, blends and types of beans to the "pour over" method that's gaining traction to latte art and the real meaning of labels like "fair trade" and "organic." We check in on the local coffee scene here and ask - does Charlotte really have a coffee culture? Sit back with your favorite mug and join us for a conversation with Chef Peter Reinhart, coffee roaster David Haddock from Boquete Mountain Coffee and James Yoder, the owner of Not Just Coffee.
