NPR's Science Friday Talks the Chemistry of Coffee
Science Friday is a two-hour radio show syndicated on NPR stations around the country, and has been broadcasting for over two decades. In the past few years, they've also started releasing video segments for the web to accompany show topics, produced by media editor Flora Lichtman. This week's segment is about a favorite topic of ours, coffee brewing. Baristas demonstrate the nuances of cupping (slurping), and a food expert provides insights like why we call coffee seeds beans.
