Hammons Honey with Josh Hammons

Click here for podcast: Episode 10: Hammons Honey with Josh Hammons

On October 21st, 2016, I was able to snatch an interview with Josh Hammons, the owner of Hammons Honey.  It was the end of a farmers market day for him, and he was very kind to take time for an interview.  As you can imagine, he was exhausted from a day’s work already of selling honey, but this doesn’t come across in our conversation.  Josh is very passionate about what he does and I was fascinated by the information he shared, as I hope you will be too. =)

Anchois Coffee

ColorMeLocal Podcast: Episode 3: Anchois Coffee Co

On August 9, 2016, I spoke with Jason Blitz from Anchois Coffee Co, a family owned and operated coffee roasting company in Las Vegas, NV. I am very excited to share this conversation.  You will hear how little I know about coffee ;-), and how much knowledge Jason has to share.  One of the things that I love about this small, authentic business is their desire to provide education to their customers.

Anchois Coffee Company is definitely a company I want to keep my eyes on and keep in mind for future coffee bean purchases.  Such a treat!

Baguette Cafe

ColorMeLocal Podcast: Episode 1: Baguette Cafe
I had the delightful opportunity of visiting with Olivier Brouillet, one of the owners of Baguette Cafe, on July 17th, 2016.  We met in his cafe after it had closed on a Sunday.  The warm Las Vegas sun streamed through large windows which helped create a bright and welcoming atmosphere.  In the background of the podcast you can hear people cleaning, the busyness of closing time.  They were kindly working quieter than usual so that Olivier and I could record our visit, but even so, you will be to hear some familiar sounds.  I love it.  It’s a good reminder that it takes lots of hard work, that often goes unnoticed, in order for a business to succeed.
