About Us

Vibrant is a storytelling podcast about coffee and hospitality. It's an ongoing series of short audio stories recorded with coffee professionals and industry admirers about exceptional coffee hospitality moments. Each episode, one person shares a hospitality story they experienced that has stuck with them. You'll hear stories from origin, cafes, homes and beyond, with valuable bits of coffee knowledge along the way. Vibrant isn't intended to be an exact how-to on hospitality, nor a bashing board for lackluster service experiences. Rather, the purpose of Vibrant is to spotlight memorable hospitality moments from seed-to-cup that elevate coffee quality and vibrancy. These are short stories packed with kindness for us to learn from and bring to life in our own ways for an even more connected and inspiring specialty coffee community.New episodes are released every other Tuesday.
