Episode 54: Second Shot featuring Cast Iron Roasters

Second Shot is a very unique cafe. On one hand it is a social enterprise, helping the homeless gain employment & new barista skills, and on the other it has, perhaps one of the finest and most varied collection of coffees from the UK & Europe-in no small part thanks to the head of coffee Emilio Rodriguez. I speak with founder Julius Ibrahim about this venture and talk to Emilio about our featured coffee-a crazy/beautiful Kenyan filter by Cast Iron Roasters with actual rhubarb & custard flavour notes.
