From Bean to Buzz--COFFEE!


From beans, to barista, to buzz, coffee is a big, bold, and complex story.

  • What's brewing in the Bay Area?
  • What does it take to make a great cup?
  • Can you have it your way?
  • And what's up with those pods?

Join host David Onek and studio guests to ride the "3rd Wave" of coffee.  No attitude and no waiting in line!

Producer: Lisa Denenmark


In the studio with David are:

Thom Owen, Co-owner, Sweet Maria's Coffee

Trish Rothgeb and Nick Cho, Co-founders, Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters

Frieda Hoffman, Owner, Local 123
