Decentered Media Podcast 091 – Parallel Lives with Gail Brown

As part of the Documentary Media Centre Parallel Lives Newsday, John and I chatted with Gail Brown from Leicester Coffee House about her trips to South America, and the stories that are associated with coffee from around the world. Gail explained how she has been trading through the pandemic lockdown, providing takeaway coffee, acting as a point of contact for people, and increasingly a location for stories to be exchanged by customers from around the world. We discussed how there is a growing intersection between coffee suppliers and growers in South America, who are building relationships with coffee shops and cafés here in the UK. We talked about how we would never have expected this to have been possible even a few years ago, and that Leicester Coffee House, in a way, has gone full circle as a globally connected business.
