We respect that your time is precious. Our reverence for time — whether for inspiration or reflection — is literally in our name, time cupsoul. When we listen to podcasts, to love one, we set the bar extremely high. Here are our favorite chocolate and/or coffee-themed podcasts that feel more like nourishment than noise.
3 of the BEST podcasts on craft chocolate/The Chocolate INdustry
English language. This is our #1 recommendation for a chocolate podcast. If you only decide to listen to one chocolate podcast today and have any interest in listening to intellectual interviews with women in chocolate about cacao, cocoa, chocolate trends and life, look no further. We truly have enjoyed more than 50% of these episodes and feel very confident recommending this show to you. We deeply love this podcast! Not yet on Spotify, but linked above.
English language. #2 recommendation. We’ve written about this podcast before and are big fans of author and journalist Simran Sethi, the podcast founder and writer of the excellent book (one of our favorite books, ever), Bread, Wine and Chocolate. The podcast episodes have now ended, but the evergreen shows (online) remain top notch. We love this podcast.
English language. We’re newer listeners to this podcast and have enjoyed virtually traveling Southeast Asia with the podcast owner, Max, and listening to her stories. We like this podcast; it has interesting interviews. Not yet on Spotify, but linked above!
the best podcast on both CHOCOLATE AND COFFEE
The best podcast that we’ve found on both coffee AND chocolate. French language. This is one of our most favorite podcasts of all time, and no one really seems to be covering it yet. Enjoy 🙂 “Welcome to Coffee, Chocolate and Counter Chat. A podcast dedicated to these wonderful products of coffee and chocolate and to the extraordinary encounters we make by sharing these passions with you. We will also approach the universe of these products from our point of view of importer and manufacturer, while being in contact with, on one side the producers and on the other, consumers and professionals, chefs and artisans. We will also color our discussions with our reality, our entrepreneurial lifestyle, the rurality of our geographic positioning and the chance to live in a wonderful place on the edge of Baie-des-Chaleurs. Host: Dany Marquis.” Marquis is part of the Chaleur B Chocolat (chocolate) and Brûlerie du Quai (coffee roaster) brands.
2 of the best podcasts on coffee/The coffee INdustry
#1 recommendation for coffee. Portuguese and English language. A great series relating to all things coffee! Energizing host, and innovative discussions. Check it out. According to Sprudge, “One of the main goals of COFFEA […] is to help lessen the prejudice and stereotyping that Brazilian coffees tend to face (being such a large producer, the country produces both extremely good—and bad—beans). In its short lifetime, COFFEA won third place in the National Brazilian Coffee Journalism contest, a testament to Stein’s commitment to delivering relevant coffee content in a very accessible way.”
#2 recommendation for coffee podcast, but very close 2nd. English language. Start your journey in the coffee world! This is a podcast dedicated to “Coffee|Barista|Management” according to their Spotify profile. We like how wide-ranging the episodes are. Listen to this for business acumen combined with delicious industry insights relevant to your future cafe.
