In this week’s episode of Unpacking Coffee, Kandace and Ray check in with the inimitable Jared Truby and Chris Baca of Cat & Cloud Coffee, which opened a flagship roastery café in Santa Cruz, Calif., last year.

Despite their endless convivial tomfoolery — a series of creative F-bombs earned this episode a “mature” rating on Vimeo — Truby and Baca are longtime coffee professionals known to take their roasting and brewing craft quite seriously, often delving into coffee theory and business operations on the Cat & Cloud podcast and blog. C&C is also the featured roaster this month at the La Marzocco Cafe and Showroom in Seattle.

Kandace and Ray, take it away:

Unpacking Coffee is a weekly show discovering new coffee roasters one episode at a time led by Kandace and Ray of the Portland-based studio Needmore Designs, which specializes in coffee, wine and lifestyle brands.
