Episode 59: Coffee in fine dining

On the podcast today we're stepping into the world of fine dining to explore the role of coffee in high-end restaurants and how restauranteurs are elevating their coffee standards. 

We speak with Søren Ledet, Co-founder and General Manager of Copenhagen's Geranium, to find out how one of the world's finest dining establishments runs its coffee programme and uses storytelling and theatre to deliver a captivating coffee experience.

We also speak with Olivier Fellous, General Manager, La Manufacture - a joint venture between Lavazza and chef Alain Ducasse - to discuss the synergies between the coffee and fine dining worlds, and Myles Shapcott, Commercial Director, Origin Coffee Roasters, to explore the growing opportunities for specialty roasting brands to expand into this lucrative market.
