Informative, But....

By Dawnlandia - Sep 16 2019

Good podcast. Guys are great. Information interesting and helpful and I will keep listening. However, I’m a sound nerd and the sound quality of the recording is poor. Into sounds like it is recorded in a toilet bowl. The episode about packaging sounds like two of the guys have moved into, say....a tiled hallway, but one of the three still sounds like he’s recording from the pottie. I’ve become a faithful listener, however!

Thanks guys!

Rank #5: #17 The Coffee Roaster & Customer Training-Part 1

Podcast cover
Read more
Season 2 Episode 6 is the first of 2 parts on the topic of customer training. As Todd says, for coffee roasters, "training is the new equipment." But how much training, where, and when? Is it free? How do you manage customer expectations? Not only do Mark and Todd begin addressing these questions, but Todd was late for our recording sessions and, of course, Mark just let that go and didn't mention it ... at all.
