Host Umeko Motoyoshi interviews Chris McCauley and Cydni Patterson of Getchusomegear. Chris McAuley's Getchusomegear is built around the mission of “hookin’ up marginalized coffee pros and business owners with free coffee gear” but has quickly become much more. They just recently announced an incredible slate of charitable grant recipients, and are actively working to make the coffee world a better and more equitable place in real, tangible ways. Read our 2020 profile of Chris McAuley here.
Cydni Patterson is a coffee professional and barista competitor based out of Durham, North Carolina, and is the host of Cascara on the Sprudge Podcast Network. In each episode of Cascara, Patterson takes listeners to a different city and talks to locals about what makes their coffee community unique to find out, as she puts it, “what's really brewing in coffee scenes around the world.” It's the perfect way to scratch your travel itch during COVID times—a trip around the world in a cup of coffee, with Cydni Patterson as your guide.
