As a passionate coffee drinker, I am always looking for the best cup of premium coffee. Once Leslie and I tasted Papa Rob’s Coffee, we instantly fell in love with the flavor of the Espresso Special Blend. Papa Rob’s Coffee is the only coffee we drink and I’m proud to have them as the exclusive sponsor of the podcast!

Papa Rob’s Roasting Company was started to pass on the love for premium coffee that is as fresh as it is delicious! Rob sources only the finest green coffee beans from around the world and then roasts them to perfection upon order in small batches, so that they will always be at their peak flavor and freshness. One taste and you will experience the difference!
