One of my favorite local podcasts to follow (besides the one produced by the fine folks at Ida Red - love those local artist jams) is that of DoubleShot Coffee Company, headquartered right here in Tulsa. He doesn't publish often, but when he does, it's a barrage of information.
And I mean that in the best possible way. We foodies love all things barrage, especially when it comes to arcane tidbits about our food and drinks.
Pretty much everything I know about coffee I owe to Brian Franklin, founder and owner and "roastmaster" at the DoubleShot and receiver and conqueror of much Starbucks throwing around of weight, and also to his snarky blog posts and podcasts.
I'm not the only one who thinks Brian is probably a pretty knowledgeable guy.
Amy Ferraris, a maker of indie films, found her way to Tulsa as she filmed for her documentary, The Perfect Cappuccino. As it turned out, Amy really liked the cappuccinos at DoubleShot, and she ended up hanging around in our neck of the woods for quite awhile.
Much of the film ended up being shot in Tulsa, giving our city some recognition across a wide variety of America's fooderati. Which is always a very cool thing - food is yet another area in which T-Town is grossly under-sung.
See the film itself and meet Ferraris via live Web chat at the DoubleShot tonight. Brian will have the doors open and the espresso machine ready for business at 6pm, with the film starting at 7. Admission is zilch, zero, $0, nada.
That's a lot of yummy for not a lot of money, I'd say. See you on the couch.
