CoffeeLoversMag...   Living Coffee with Paul Bassett---is that on Food Network or what?

Steamer....  Is Modern Marvels on Food Network as well? Seems I may have seen some of their presentations if so.

Thanks guys for your comments!  I need to check out Food Network online for their schedule---have not watched it in a while.

Dangerous Grounds is coming back for a 2nd season on Travel Channel starting January 28.

To me, the show hypes the danger aspect but I still find it interesting to learn about where coffee beans come from.

Be careful what you wish for...next thing you know we'll a nice new reality TV show on Bravo about 6 catty Baristas in a coffee shop in New York who just CAN'T get along!

That being said, I wasn't really into Dangerous Grounds, not really what I'm into.  I'm more interested in watching the brewing/selling/business side.  I'd check out Perfect Cappucino though.

"Black Coffee" was a 3-part PBS show that was quite good.

All 3 episodes, all about 57 minutes each, are on YouTube:

Interesting. I went to YouTube and entered filters to search for any High-Def videos longer than 20 minutes. There's tons of stuff to watch.

Actually it's not so easy to find now that I search more. So here's some stuff I found that looks interesting.

I just saw the Nepal episode of Dangerous Grounds on the Travel Channel. I agree that it is a bit of a caffeinated chase show. That said, I liked it. Not the wild driving and flying around Pokhara, although I have been there and enjoyed the same bus riding challenges they had. I loved that he roasted and cupped on the spot, and later he made a Chemex brew to sell the beans to his client. I recently returned from visiting some coffee fincas in Guatemala and feel like there are good shows to be made using the Dangerous Grounds formula. Well , maybe with less caffeine and more actual content. For instance, what was planned for the Nepal farmers thousands of pounds of coffee that Dangerous Grounds happened to come across on a whim and a GPS? Hell, it was THE day that they had 24 hours to get it to Katmandu before it went moldy? What and where was the market if an American coffee buyer didn't show up on foot to buy the whole harvest? What is traditionally done with that much coffee when farms are several days from a major town or village?

In Guatemala, a local coop or independent dealer will buy the beans from various small farms and take the responsibility for processing and/or marketing them. A bigger coffee farm does it all on their own. In Nepal, they acted like farmers had no idea what to do with their product. From watching the farmers work, they seemed to know exactly what they were doing.
