Coffee Stories by 49th Parallel

Episode 01 - On Colombia and Sourcing with Tyler Youngblood

Narratives from the flipside of your morning cup - These are real and compelling stories from coffee movers and shakers, who had the courage and passion to share what it really takes to bring beautiful seasonal coffees worth celebrating into our lives everyday.

What does a ghost writer working remotely in Argentina have in common with one of the most up and coming specialty coffee exporters in Latin America?

This kickoff episode is an interview I had with Tyler in his Bogotá apartment, with a whole lot of activity outside - a yelling Tamale vendor, a truck parade, the cyclo via a road shut down for cyclists on Sunday morning - All before I had to catch my flight to Peru that morning.

He had a wild story to share about how he got into specialty coffee. We focused our conversation on traceability and fair pricing structures decoupled from the C market.
