Coffee, Chocolate and counter discussion - Episode 07

And here is our 7th episode with a counter discussion, so we talk about bread and the concentration of the baking industry, the loss of jobs in the region with the sale of the Port-Daniel cement plant in the background. Mr. Pierre Cyr is a precious witness to the time when the regions were more autonomous in their food supply.
So this was a magnificent discussion, a slice of life, that we had, with a little entrepreneurship, employment challenges, a beautiful testimony, and an opportunity to hear a little Gaspésie language and philosophy.

On the coffee side, Maélie tells us about two myths about roasting, slow roasting and caffeine in dark coffees.
And Dany is still talking about filter coffee, skimming over the different variations available while skimming over other related topics.

Animation by Dany Marquis and Maélie Martin.
