 The Coffee Gals were in Austin, TX for Geek Spring Break…er…um….we mean South By Southwest aka SXSW or even Southby for the hipsters. As usual we were all about the coffee and decided to share our thoughts about the coffee or the lack thereof. Grab your cup of brew and join the fun!

More Bantai Civet Coffee

Posted by the second brain | Posted in Guest Show, On the Road, Podcasts, Tasting | Posted on 23-08-2009


We finally tracked down our Bantai Civet Coffee contest winner, Michael Madison. Luckily we were also able to convince Dustin Butler, owner of Bantai Civet Coffee to join us for another tasting. Yeah, we know it’s self serving since we will also get to drink some of this $320/lb coffee. However this time we’re ready for the big buzz. Going plaid is a forgone conclusion. Join us for some coffee fun!

A special thanks to Janie at the San Antonio Coffee Roasters aka What’s Brewing for allowing us to record in their roasting facility. The smell of the coffee is always amazing!

Morning Brewcast is going live & fancy tomorrow!

Jackie and Jennifer are at the Denny’s on the North side of town. Since Denny’s announced during the Superbowl that it wants to feed America, we thought we would do our part to help them.

The coffee was solid, the service was excellent and the staff still smiling and chipper. Kudos to you Denny’s!

MBC Special Report: Starbucks Closing for 3 Hours

The Coffee Gals take the show on road via Utterz for the 3-hour closing of Starbucks.

Our first stop is at Cafe Oasis in the Clear Lake area. Not only did the guy behind the counter know nothing about it, he actually had the guts to tell us, “Coffee is Coffee.” We almost walked out without our coffee when we heard that.

We did stop by 2 Starbucks locations to see if there was any mayhem happening from caffeine-deprived folks. You can hear our thoughts on the whole experience here:
