VIDEO: The NPR Virtual Coffeehouse

All this week on The Salt and on Morning Edition, we've been exploring the stories behind your ritual cup of joe. On Friday afternoon, we held an NPR virtual coffeehouse to discuss. You can watch archived video of the first of what we hope will be a series of Google+ Hangouts with the NPR food team. Our goal is to get you involved.

Correspondents Allison Aubrey and Dan Charles hosted the event, which also featured digital reporter/editor Eliza Barclay and me, host of The Salt.

Guests:

Mark Pendergrast, author of Uncommon Grounds

Peter Giuliano of the Specialty Coffee Association of America

Kim Elena Ionescu of Counter Culture Coffee
