Scott Conary of Carrboro Coffee Roasters will be featured in the Coffee Reality Showlogo-Barista-Farmer-

 - Barista & Farmer, to be filmed In Honduras from February 1st thru the 10th.

Scott will be featured as the instructor in the afternoon education programs for the Baristas, teaching such classes as Roasting & Coffee Cupping.

10 Baristas, chosen from a pool of hundreds of applicants from around the world, will be tasked with working coffee farms alongside the very people whose life is built around growing the very coffee the Baristas love to brew.

  They will be tasked with the daily tasks of harvest and processing and everything it takes to grow delicious high quality coffee – all on camera!

You can see the info on Barista selection here :Barista & Farmer Selection 2015

Various challenges will be setup for all, such as who can pick the most ripe coffee cherries, and other team building exercises.

The Show will take place in two areas of Western Honduras, known for high quality coffee, eco-tourism and intense beauty!

Bearded Folk – January 24th, 8pm

Bearded Folk is the stage name for singer/songwriter Andrew Davidson. What began as an unbeatable beer pong team quickly turned into the name of a bedroom recording project that eventually blossomed into a one-man-band properly titled Bearded Folk. With a mix of kick-drum and tambourine and a splash of harmonica and a good helping of acoustic guitar with some singing in the middle Bearded Folk sounds like a 3-piece band or at least a really good 2-piece. But it’s not always necessary to sound like more than one person and when you really get to the bottom of it all, it comes down to a beard and a guitar, and that my friends is unbeatable.
