Cafe Imports is proud to present a regular weekly podcast, OPPOSITES EXTRACT: A DEBATE PODCAST ABOUT COFFEE. Since debuting in March 2016, OPPOSITES EXTRACT has skyrocketed to the top of iTunes’ FOOD charts, hitting #1 and featured as “NEW & NOTEWORTHY” in the iTunes store, with weekly streams in the thousands.
OPPOSITES EXTRACT is a debate-style show; each episode tackles a different topic of interest to coffee professionals and consumers: Show hosts and longtime coffee professionals Joe Marrocco and Erin Meister invite guest debaters to flip a coin and develop an argument to an assigned side, pro or con, to the topic. Each participant crafts a logical and reasoned argument to their assigned side, regardless of their personal opinions; at the end of the debate, the guests discuss their actual views, and talk more generally about the topic. Debate episodes run about 45 minutes.
