Episode 32 - Coffee Scams or Just Clever Business?
I've known Chris Topher since we were 17 years old.
We met at a friend's fancy dress 18th birthday party.
I obviously went as Leonardo, the ninja turtle, and when I couldn't work out what his costume was, he told me he was Frank Abignail Jr from the movie Catch Me If You Can. He's been obsessed with scamming, swindling, deceiving, defrauding and grifting since his high school days, so it was no surprise to me that when it was his turn to choose an episode topic, he went straight for ' Coffee Scams'.
In this episode, we each bring our own coffee 'scam' to the table to discuss if it really is a scam or just brilliant marketing. Fairtrade coffee, multi-level marketing schemes and the famous Kopi Luwak coffee are all in our crosshairs on the hardest-hitting episode in the short history of this podcast.
Also in this episode: Cane toads are in Kunanurra, and Filament Coffee has a brand new (hot) coffee product ✌️
