Wow, this little coffee conversation is still rambling on--enjoying all comments, info. Just realized it started March 2013, almost a year ago. My coffee education started in Nov 2012 as Thanksgiving approached. My BV brewer arrived just before Turkey Day. Researched grinders, that arrived in Feb 2013.

Since that time I've noticed a growing 'coffee awareness' (besides my own) locally. Our WFs began stocking fresh roasts from a roaster 90 miles away (Albany, IN). Then a couple of gourmet shops opened up here in Lexington, selling 2 local roasters beans. There was a nice article in our paper about one of them, Magic Beans. Before Christmas 2013, Magic Beans started stocking fresh roasts at our Good Foods Coop--they also sell at the Farmers Market doing pour-overs and educating consumers about coffees. Just before that a new coffee shop opened up downtown selling fresh roasts, doing pour-overs, etc.

As one poster mentioned earlier...  soon there may be a reality coffee tv show---I'll be looking forward to "Reality Coffee"  LOL!   Still hoping for a Food Network type coffee show.

9pm EST here, just caught "Dangerous Grounds" on Travel Channel.  Interesting, looking forward to watching future episodes.

FYI... iTunes has the full episode 1 from season 2 - "Mexican Motherload" - for free. You can watch it on your computer or Apple iDevice/TV.

I love Dangerous Grounds. The guy is a bit intense but it's a cool show. I love seeing the different countries and where the coffee is grown. I've had his Ethiopian Kaffa, and Thailand so far. Waiting for a different Ethiopian now. I'm pretty close to Philadelphia so shipping is cheap and I get my order the next day.

They should do a show following whomever makes all the contacts in advance of Todd and Hollywood arriving on the scene. I've got neighbors here in Virginia I wouldn't dare walk on their farm without permission. Much less even think about bounding off in the jungle in drug country lands with camera in hand and uttering "coffee" as my ticket for safe passage at the sign of danger.

Jerry43....  funny I was just going thru a forum regarding drug smuggling here in KY back in the 70s and 80s. Comments on farmland close to Lexington (The Bluegrass Conspiracy), some still guarded by security cameras, and of course the usual No Trespassing signs. Three farms all next to each other were owned by 3 different owners involved in the "conspiracy" at that time, one had a landing strip and I think all were on the water. A poster on that forum was crazy enough to recently enter the one farm where a missing local is supposed to be buried---they got off real quick! Some say the "conspiracy" here never really died, even after most the main players fell from their glory---the main character literally did fall to his death, becoming tangled in his parachute and landing in a TN driveway with 75lbs of cocaine strapped to his body.

Of course most farms have No Trespassing for good reasons---especially horse farms.

I like Dangerous Grounds for its entertainment value, but it is a poor representation of how roasters and brokers actually work with farms. They build relationships with the farmers or the coops and tend to not visit uninvited or just walk into someone's farm. But of course it is hyped up for TV. He claims he is the first to get certain coffees out of areas and that's simply not always factual. But Todd is still a well known and largely respected member of the coffee community so we know there is more to him than just going all Indiana Jones on coffee.
