In this episode, Niny Rao gives us an energizing chemistry lesson and shares findings from her research on the acidity and antioxidant activity of coffee. Rao, an associate professor of chemistry at Thomas Jefferson University, aims to provide home brewers with an understanding of coffee brewing chemistry so that they can apply that knowledge when customizing their own cup of joe.
You can find Rao on Twitter @NinyRao or email her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a world traveler and a coffee lover, you can check out one of the international coffee expos in countries including Tokyo, Costa Rica, Brazil, or Thailand. There will also be a Specialty Coffee Expo in Portland, Oregon in April of 2020.
